With Facebook’s ‘’Feeds filter bar’’ News feed adjustment option, users now have the ability to control who can comment on their posts

After Twitter and TikTok which allowed their users and brands to limit their comment, Facebook has also launched a new filter bar in which it allowed the users, creators, and brands to limit the comments of the public on their posts, in a bid to help users to control the unwanted interactions on this platform. This new filter tool will provide the ability to users to limit the comments to those profiles and pages in which they are tagged, or to open it up to anyone who can see the post and to some extent this new tool will also control trolling and bullying on this platform as people have many issues regarding harassment, bullying, and trolling and somehow this new tool will help to control these issues when you limit the unwanted people.

It will also be an easy way to turn off the feeds algorithm’s status and presented content in the order it was posted instead. In October last year, Facebook launched a ‘’Favorites’’ tool in which users were allowed to select up to 30 friends and pages of which they prioritize their contents and so that it will be displayed on a separate news feed. This company also offered their users an option to sort their feed as ‘’ most recent’’ but then buried this option in ambiguous menus. Facebook is now prioritizing ‘’Favorites’’ and ‘’Recent’’ filters by putting them right at the top of the news feed as distinct tabs that users can switch between. The feed filter bar is available to those users who use ‘’Favorites’’ most of the time, builds on favorites by giving the users easy access to see the most recent content of their selected people and it will enable the users to switch between default algorithm-ranked news feed and a feed which is organized chronologically with the latest post first. Facebook has announced that it is launching this filter bar today and it will launch this filter bar for iOS in the upcoming weeks, however, Facebook has not made it clear so far that whether the web version will get this feature too or not.

This option will be much helpful for the creators and brands who can limit the comments of their audience on their public posts to feel safe on the platform and they can even engage with their audience in a more meaningful way and they can even get creative ideas by allowing only certain users to comment on their posts. If you see none of these controls are new but somehow these controls will give more options to the users.
