How the Facebook News Feed Works

The Facebook News Feed is a constantly updating list of stories from Facebook that includes status updates, photos, videos, links, and more from the friends and Pages you have connected with on Facebook. When you open Facebook, the first thing you’ll see is the News Feed.

The algorithm

The Facebook news feed is a constantly updating list of stories from friends, Pages you’ve liked, and groups you’re a part of. It’s personalized to each individual user, which means that everyone sees a different selection of stories.

The algorithm that determines what appears in your news feed is constantly evolving, but there are some basic principles that it follows. First, Facebook ranks every piece of content by how interesting it thinks it is to you. That ranking is then used to determine how much space that story will take up in your feed, with the most interesting stories appearing larger.

Second, the algorithm looks at how much interaction each piece of content is getting. If a lot of people are commenting on a story or sharing it, Facebook will assume that it’s more interesting and give it more space in your feed. Conversely, if a story isn’t getting much engagement, it will be pushed down in your news feed.

Finally, the algorithm looks at how recent each piece of content is. Generally speaking, newer stories are going to be more interesting than older ones, so they’ll appear higher up in your news feed. However, this isn’t always the case – sometimes an older story will become timely again because of current events (like a holiday) or because it’s been shared by someone new.

All of these factors – how interesting Facebook thinks a story is to you, how much engagement it’s getting, and how recent it is – are constantly being weighed against each other to determine what order your news feed should be in. The goal of the algorithm is to show you the most interesting stories first, so you’re less likely to miss something important from your friends or Pages you care about.

The types of content you see

The Facebook news feed is the constantly updating list of stories in the middle of your home page.

The news feed is personalized to each individual user, which means that everyone sees a different mix of stories. The stories you see in your news feed are determined by a complex algorithm that takes into account numerous factors, including:

– The number of people who like or have commented on a post
– Whether you and the person who made the post have mutual friends
– The type of post (e.g., photo, video, status update)
– How recently the post was made
– Whether you have interacted with the person who made the post in the past

How to Remove a Post from Your Facebook News Feed

To remove a post from your news feed on Facebook:

-Click in the top right of your News Feed
-Click Following
-Hover over the person you want to unfollow and click Following next to their name
-Select Unfollow [name]

Hiding posts

Hiding a post removes it from your News Feed, but you can still access it by clicking on the hidden post in your activity log. To hide a post:

-Click the drop-down arrow at the top right of the post
-Click Hide from Timeline or Unfollow [name]

You can also hide all posts from someone by unfollowing them, which you can do from their profile page.

Snoozing

You can now snooze a person, Page or group for 30 days. This means you won’t see their posts in your News Feed during that time. All of your pending invitations from that person or Page will also be hidden.

To snooze someone:
-Click at the top right of Facebook and select Settings.
-Click News Feed Preferences in the left column.
