Facebook emojis, dislike button


We swear Facebook has gone through more changes in the last few months than we did during our entire middle school experience. The latest tweak to the site is an effort to make the News Feed a place to view content the social site thinks you want to see first. Facebook discovered that people want to read posts from their family and friends the most, which means they'll be putting those posts at the top of your feed. 

Second, the social site feels users appreciate being "informed" and "entertained" as well, just not at the top of their feed. These posts will come after those from your loved ones, including the latest news and current events, followed by posts from celebs you follow or Live videos to name a few. 

If you don't like what you see on your feed after these changes occur (for example if you'd rather see the latest Hiddleswift news than another muffin recipe from your grandma), Facebook says, "Features such as 'unfollow,' 'hide' and 'see first' help you design your own experience — and when you use them, we take your actions as feedback to help us better understand what content is most important to you. For example, if you hide a story from someone, that signals that you're less interested in hearing from that person in the future." We're def pressing "See First" on every post from Taco Bell and Britney Spears. Just saying.
