Facebook gives users more freedom with the new newsfeed

Facebook now allows users to further customize the newsfeed. The feed is now divided into several tabs, including tabs for the most viewed people, pages and groups.

In addition, it is possible to filter out messages in the feed. Who does not want to see something from a friend, can indicate to see less similar messages or no messages at all from that person.

Facebook hopes with the update for desktop and mobile to meet the criticism from some users. Many users claim that there are too many messages that are not relevant. “People want more control”, says a product manager of Facebook to The Wall Street Journal.

The American company also performs more changes to the news feed, because users post and watch more videos. Now it’s also possible to see how many views a video got. Within five years, Facebook is expected to consist primarily of video, the company said.
