Facebook launched a redesigned news feed Wednesday, causing angst among many of the social network’s millions of users, if negative and perplexed posts to Twitter are any indication.
And this might be just the beginning, as the social network is expected to announce more changes at its annual F8 developers conference Thursday in San Francisco.
The made-over news feed curates your friends’ posts and looks at a number of factors to decide whether they deserve top billing on your account’s home page. The network also changed the feed to more prominently display pictures and added a few settings meant to give users post-by-post control over the feed.
But until you take the time to sift through the posts yourself, Facebook is deciding what's important for you to see.
