Facebook has a suggestion for how to better filter your News Feed: Unfollow those friends you're sick of seeing.
Facebook has long encouraged users to engage with the content they see in order to improve the company's algorithm — "Like" or comment on what you enjoy and hide what you don't. Now, it's encouraging users to go a step further.
The social network unveiled a few changes to News Feed on Friday that center on unfollowing people. Now, when you hide a post from your News Feed, Facebook will ask for more details as to why you're hiding it. Do you have a problem with the user who shared it? Was it the publication your friend linked to? Depending on the answer, Facebook will then ask if you'd like to unfollow that person or group as a result.
