Today, Facebook introduced a very significant update to its application. First, it’s been a long time and it makes sense that the main feed you’ll see when you launch the app is now called Home. The main update is the addition of a new tab to the app called Feeds.
According to GSM Arena, this tab is arranged in reverse chronological order, just like what was previously known as Home before the algorithm took over.
The Sources tab can show you all or just material from your friends, groups, pages or favorites – this is a customized list of the friends and pages you care about most.
Facebook now sees the Home feed as “more of a discovery tool to discover and follow new content and artists through recommendations.” Sources, on the other hand, are where you go to “get material from individuals and communities you’re already connected with.” There are no “Designed for you” posts in the resources.
The new Home and Feeds cards are rolling out today to a select percentage of Facebook users on iOS and Android. They should be available to everyone on Facebook within the next week, GSM Arena reported.
The shortcut bar that contains these tabs is located at the bottom of the Facebook app on iOS and at the top of the Facebook app on Android. The shortcut bar tabs will change depending on the aspects of the program you use most, but you can customize them and pin them to the shortcut bar so that their placement is permanent.
