How To Manage Your Facebook Newsfeed

Adjusting News Feed Preferences

If you’re like me, you randomly “like” pages as you see them appear on your Facebook timeline.

Oh, what a cute cat! <Like Page>

The life quote is soooo me. <Like Page>

Oh, this looks interesting, Jenny likes this page, I’ll like them too. <Like Page>

Sometimes, however, I discover this “like” comes at a cost.

Instead of seeing more things I can relate to, I find that random posts clog up my newsfeed and I want to see less of them. Or sometimes, none at all <instant Unlike Page>.

Here’s the latest way to make sure your newsfeed is showing things that interest you the most.

How To Manage Your Topic Feeds On Facebook

1. Topic Feeds

Topics on Facebook Newsfeed

  1. Go to your home page on Facebook
  2. In the top tool bar, you’ll see a little cog icon, and if you hover over it, it will say Edit.
  3. Click the cog icon and it will take you to your entire list of topics you have indicated to Facebook that you are interested in. Some of you may have a small list, others may have quite a long one!
  4. Facebook gives you the option to remove or add a topic to your interest list. Work your way through this list to prioritize what you see in your newsfeed.

Topics that appear in your Facebook news feed will now be more targeted to things that interest you.

2. News Feed Preferences
