NEWS: Facebook gives users more control over their News Feed

Facebook has unveiled a new settings for its News Feed, giving users more control over the updates they see.

News Feed settings now lets users view updates from people, Pages or Groups or see an overall summary. It allows users to unfollow any friend, Page or Group if they no longer want to receive updates from them, and can re-follow anytime.

Meanwhile, the social network  is allowing users to hide stories by simply clicking the arrow in the top right of the update to hide it. After hiding the story the user will be asked if they would like to see less form this person or Page.

These settings could make it even more difficult for businesses to advertise on this platform without paying for updates.
