Facebook Is Working On New Tabs And Filter Options For News Feed

Facebook is always testing out new features and options to enhance the user experience. It has been seen that the social network is currently testing a new set of tabs as well as filter options for the news feed. The new features will allow users to filter the posts on the basis of recent posts, favorite posts, and most relevant posts.

According to a famous social media commentator, Matt Navarra, the company is currently testing out a new set of tabs for  news feed. Matt Navarra posted a screenshot on Twitter displaying how the new changes will look like. In the screenshot shared by Navarra, we can see that Facebook has added three tabs to the news feed of users.

The tabs added by Facebook are the Home tab, the Favourites tab, and the Recent tab. Users will be able to choose from the options – Home, Favourites, and Recent. The Home tab will display you the most relevant content first. The Favourites tab show content posted by your favorite users. Lastly, the Recent tab will display new content posted by users.

With the new features, you will be able to view content according to your wish. These features will allow users to customize the content they see in the news feed. According to some users, the ‘most relevant’ content is defined by an algorithm that may display you the content from the same 10 or 20 users, regardless of whether you are interested in a particular topic or not.

The company is still testing the new features which mean that these features are not currently ready to be rolled out for public use. The company has not also yet confirmed that Facebook is testing new tabs and filter options for your news feed.

It is also not yet clear when the company will roll out the new options as the company has not yet made an official announcement on this aspect. We hope that the company will soon make an official announcement regarding the testing of this new feature.
