A new feature rolling out today that lets users select up to 30 friends or Pages to ensure they get those friends’ latest posts at the top of their feed.The social network is debuting the features on its iOS app first and users can not only choose whose posts will appear at the top of their feed, but also edit and filter the things they don’t want to see at all.
After updating the iOS app, users will find a new settings section called News Feed Preferences with the tools for customization. Choosing users or Pages to prioritize means their updates will always appear at the top of the News Feed, making sure their posts aren’t lost in the timeline. This new feature will also help you find new Pages to follow and connect with publishers, artists and businesses you might be interested in. Based on the types of Pages you’ve liked in the past, you can discover new Pages in order to get more of the stories you care about.
Finally, if you are like me and follow a crap ton of pages you now have the ability to filter out their stories from cluttering your timeline.
