Facebook Introduces New Shortcut Bar Settings

In an effort to make it easier to navigate around the platform, Facebook introduced a navigation bar. However, this nav bar has been received rather poorly by the average Facebook user, and the reason for this has to do with the manner in which Facebook tends to provide updates to this nav bar, as well as the lack of control the average user has with regards to the kind of experience they can obtain from this feature all in all.

Facebook has mostly used the nav bar to promote options that it wants its users to use more often. For example, after it launched Facebook marketplace Facebook was obviously eager for people to start using this feature in the hopes that it would end up sticking and therefore provide users with more of a reason to stay on the platform for a longer period of time than might have been the case otherwise.

However, this is a feature that a lot of users simply don’t want anything to do with which is a big part of the reason why they tend to avoid looking into this feature and taking it seriously. This makes the state of the navigation bar rather frustrating for the average user since they don’t really use it but are forced to contend with it since it is such an indispensable part of Facebook’s overall user interface.

Another annoyance that occurs because of this feature has to do with the notifications you receive. While they are not quite intrusive per se, they do have a tendency to annoy a lot of users because they tend to attract your attention to them even though you don’t want them nor are you interested in the notifications that they offer since they have something to do with a part of Facebook that you might not be all that interested in.

People that are not happy with how the navigation bar has been built are going to be very glad to know that changes are coming, that is according to TechCrunch. You will now be able to look into customizing your navigation bar. If you don’t like Facebook Marketplace, you can replace that spot with Facebook Dating or Facebook Watch, and you will be able to toggle notification dots off as well which will give you a much more pleasant looking user interface all in all.

This will go a long way towards helping people that are frustrated by how Facebook operates to feel more comfortable with the platform in general, although many more changes will have to be made before users are actually satisfied with the kind of services that they are getting from this social media platform.
