Facebook on Wednesday announced new ways in which its users can customise what they see on their Feed. 

Users of the social media platform can select ‘Show more’ or ‘Show less’ on posts from the people and communities they are connected to and posts that Facebook recommends to them.

Selecting Show more will temporarily increase the ranking score for that post and posts like it. If a user selects ‘Show less’, they will temporarily decrease its ranking score. 

By offering more ways to incorporate direct feedback into Feed ranking, Facebook is making its artificial intelligence systems smarter and more responsive.

“We’ll periodically show this on posts in Feed. Soon, you can choose to Show more or Show less on posts by tapping into the three-dot menu in the upper right-hand corner. We are also starting to test this feature in Reels”, said Meta on its blog post.

Facebook is also continuing to explore ways to help users customise how much content they see in Feed from the friends and family, Groups, Pages and public figures users are connected to. These tools — as well as Favorites, snooze and reconnect— can be found in Feed Preferences.
