In a blog post, the company says you’ll be able to control who comments on any of your public posts. Some of the options include everyone, friends, or just the profiles and pages you mentioned.
There are also changes in your News Feed. Facebook recently rolled out a new bookmarks feature where you can control and prioritize posts from friends and specific pages. You can access this feature from the feed filter bar menu at the top of the news feed.
And in the coming weeks, Facebook will also let you view the news feed in chronological order instead of the algorithm-created default.
You’ll also notice more context around the posts suggested by Facebook in your News Feed. Just select Why am I seeing this?
Here’s Facebook’s explanation of what you’ll see:
Several factors influence your suggestions for articles in the News Feed, such as:
Associated engagement: A post may be suggested to you if other people who interacted with the post also interacted with the same group, page, or post as you.
Related Topics: If you’ve recently touched on a certain topic on Facebook, we may suggest other related articles for that topic. For example, if you recently liked or commented on a one-page basketball post, we might suggest other basketball posts.
Location: You can see a suggested post based on where you live and who you interact with on Facebook.
