Facebook launched tools letting users customize their feed and decide who can comment on their public posts. The company will also offer a Feed Filter Bar that can be used to switch between algorithmic ranking of the user´s feed or show content in the order it was posted.
Users can manage the comments for any public post by choosing from options such as anyone who can view the post can comment or only people and pages they tag, Facebook wrote in a blog post.
”By adjusting your commenting audience, you can further control how you want to invite conversation onto your public posts and limit potentially unwanted interactions”, Facebook said.
“And if you’re a public figure, creator or brand, you too can choose to limit your commenting audience on your public posts to help you feel safe and engage in more meaningful conversations with your community”.
Facebook says that option Favorites makes it easier to sort and browse News Feed, giving users more control over what they see. With the tool users can control and prioritize posts from the friends and Pages they want in their News Feed.
