Facebook Testing ‘See First’ Feature To Prioritize Posts From People You Love


Facebook has been working hard to improve the News Feed experience for its billion-plus users but despite all of the measures that it’s taking there doesn’t seem to be a concrete way to ensure that posts from people you love and care about the most are always prioritized in the News Feed. As it turns out Facebook is testing a new feature called “See First” which is going to prioritize posts from contacts that users specify, recent posts from those contacts will always be shown at the top of the News Feed.

This feature will provide much needed control to Facebook users who can then filter out posts from their friends and family, and not have to search for their posts that get buried underneath the sea of updates from Pages, groups and other contacts.

Facebook confirmed to TechCrunch that it is currently running a small test of a new feature which lets users indicate a specific person or Page from which they would like to see posts at the top of their News Feed, adding that the company is “always exploring new ways to improve the Facebook experience.”

It’s unclear though at this point in time if Facebook will end up rolling out this feature to everybody, it will obviously look at the test results first before making its decision, but I’m sure there are many Facebook users like me who would like to have the ability to further fine tune their News Feed experience.
