Facebook makes it easier to control what you see on your news feed with the feed filter bar, a new menu at the top of your news feed. The feed filter bar includes shortcuts to all of your favorite news sources, plus the option to sort your feed chronologically and turn off political ads instantly.
In recent months, Facebook has enhanced its news feed with favorites, a chronological sort option, a snooze tool, and several other features. These new options give you more control over what you see in the news feed, so you can focus on content that is important to you. The new feed filter bar brings all these new features and controls to one convenient menu, making it easy to customize your feed without going deep into Facebook̵
Along with the new feed filter bar, Facebook now lets you control who can comment on your public posts. This feature is more important to public figures and businesses than average people, but hey, it can come in handy the next time you want to arrange a garage sale or other public activity through Facebook.
Facebook also provides more insight into the topic ‘Why am I seeing this?’ button, which explains why Facebook displays certain algorithmically chosen content on your feed. The new Feed Filter Bar is now available on Android, with iOS support coming in the coming weeks.
