Facebook Partially Ditched The Recommendation Feed

Meta has unveiled a new Facebook timeline that disables recommendation algorithms.

The new Feeds tab displays posts from friends, groups, and pages the user follows.

Meta also updated the Home page section, which is still generated by recommendation algorithms. Users can see content, including people and public groups to which they are not subscribed.

Tabs will appear in the Facebook Android and iOS apps within a week. The “Home” section will open by default. However, the user can pin the “Ribbons” to the Quick Access Toolbar.

Previously, the tech giant attempted to retain visitors to the social network using a chronological method of displaying content. In March 2021, Facebook gave users quick access to their News Feed’s “Most Recent” setting.
