Use Facebook's "Why do I see this post?" function to tame your newsfeed



Have you ever opened the Facebook app just to continue to see an annoying friend's post continue to appear first and wonder why? It has not been an easy way to calculate it until now.

Recently Facebook announced the expansion of its "Why do I see this ad?" feature to include posts from your friends. Previously, Facebook has just specified why you saw an ad. Facebook's newfound approach to becoming more transparent echoed this week on the F8 company's annual developer conference.

The feature slowly rolls out to all Facebook users, with the company's expectations that all users should have it in mid-May.

Learn why

Facebook is more transparent about why your newsfeed looks like it does.

Select the three-point icon in the right-hand corner of a post and click or click Why do I see this post? A popup will give the reasoning, that's what you often liked posts with photos from the specific friend or that you have clicked on links that the person has shared in the past.

I've looked at this information for at least a dozen posts by friends and the reasoning varies for each friend and post type. I often click on links shared by friends, so Facebook prioritizes these posts from friends, instead of a post that only contains text.

Facebook pulls back the curtain a little on ad targeting. Yes, it's nasty.

You can view the same information about ads shown in your feed using the same method described above, but choose Why do I see this ad? in the drop-down menu. When I showed ads in my flow I learned that I was targeting my places, age, gender, interest, keywords or because I visited the company's website.

Fix

There are a couple of things you can do because you can't see the annoying posts from a friend.

Do not follow a page or a friend and they will never know.

Facebook offers two different options for managing your news flow. You can follow up on a person, without attaching them, under Managing what you see in the news feed of the "Why do I see this post?" appear. Press friend's name and then select Follow. Again, you leave your friendship in place, and the person will not be aware that you have followed them.

Only you only need a break.

Alternatively, if you just need a break from someone, you can snooze them. Snoozing a friend removes their posts from your flow for 30 days. They do not know they have been snoozed. To snooze a friend, tap the three-point icon in the upper right corner of one of their posts, and then press Snooze . As you can see in the screens above, you can also follow up a page or a friend from the same menu.

  hide-facebook-ads "data-original =" https://cnet2.cbsistatic.com/img/R8rRH5pcSHYA8vArAL3GqGAyjY8=/2019/05/03/04679b22-d16a-436f-bff8-ee136a15ef2a/hide-facebook-ads .jpg

Hide ads from a company with just a few cranes.

When it comes to ads, you can substantially block ads from specific companies or remove interests and keywords that trigger ads from your profile. When on "Why do I see this ad?" screen, press or click the highlighted text in blue, then select hide or delete.
