How to Customize Entire Facebook News Feed
Go to your Facebook Settings page and scroll to News Feed Preference section. You will find four options there to customize your news feed. Let us check all four options one after another.
Option 1: Prioritize who to see first
Here you will see all the profiles from your friends’ list and also the pages you have liked mixed with each other. Click on those profiles and pages you never want to miss it. Once you click on them and then click on ‘Done’ then onwards whenever you log in to Facebook you will first see the updates from them only.
Tip: You can individually go to profiles and pages and can set ‘See First‘ as well.
Option #2: Unfollow people to hide their posts
There are few people you have to oblige by adding them to your Facebook list, but you certainly don’t want to read their posts for one reason or the other. Problem is that you can’t Unfriend them so what you can do? Just Unfollow them by clicking on this option. Once clicked you will see, just like the first option plenty of profiles. Start clicking on profiles which you want to Unfollow. Once done with selection click on ‘Done’ and those people’s posts will never appear in your newsfeed.
If you got a change of heart and want to follow them back then there is another option given just below that where you will find all the profiles you have unfollowed. Just click on the profile(s) you want to unfollow and you will start following them again.
Tip: You can unfollow people individually as well by visiting their profile and clicking on Friends tab you will see ‘unfollow’ option just click on it and you are done. If you wish to follow them again then you just need to follow the process again and this time click on ‘Follow’ option.
Option #3: Reconnect with people you unfollowed
You will see the ‘Reconnect with people you’ve unfollowed’ option, where you can see a list of people and pages which you have unfollowed for one reason or the other. If you feel that by reconnecting (or re-following) with them doesn’t harm you then you can start following them again and then you will be able to get their updates in your Facebook news feed.
Option #4: Discover Pages that match your interests
Too much of unlike and unfollow is done, now it’s time to start liking something. you will see page suggestions by Facebook. Facebook records your daily activities and by keeping that in mind it will furnish you a series of pages which match your interest. So if you want your news feed with posts which you like then choose the pages you are having an interest in.
Option #5: See more options
If you have hidden any Facebook app in past then you will see it here. If you feel that now you need updates from that app you can click on each app to get it back on your news feed.
Get news feed with top or most recent stories
This is also an option which has not gathered many eyeballs. On your Facebook news feed at the left side, you will see ‘News Feed’ with a dropdown option. Click on that drop-down arrow and you will see two options, first is ‘Top Stories’ and the other is ‘Most Recent’. Top Stories means that the posts which have got more attention by getting more likes and comments. ‘Most Recent’ option will have the stories which are just posted or someone from your common friends’ list has just commented on a particular post.
