Facebook outs Pages-only filter for the News Feed to all users

Facebook outs option to show only posts by Pages in your News Feed.

| Internet & Websites News | Posted: Nov 15, 2012 12:26 am

Facebook is pushing out a new update to all members today that will allow users to filter their News Feed so that only updates from Pages that the user follows are shown. The new feature is available on the left-hand side menu and called "Pages feed." A simple click on that will filter your News Feed.

"This new feature surfaces updates just from Pages you are connected to," a Facebook representative told VentureBeat. "It's a 'Pages only' view of your News Feed, making it even easier for people to keep up with the Pages they care about most."

 

The issue at hand is they way that the News Feed works. As most of you have probably realized, you don't see every post from every person. The stories chosen to be shown are determined by an algorithm. Some page owners have been especially vocal about this, saying that it forces Page owners to promote their posts so they are seen by more people.

 

If you want to see more posts by pages, this new feature by Facebook will make that easier.
