New Delhi. Social network site Facebook on Wednesday announced that it is rolling out a new feature for users to customize their feeds. Now new ‘Show more’ or less ‘Show less’ buttons will appear on users’ people, communities or posts recommended for you. Apart from this, Facebook is also going to start testing the new feature with Reel. The company says that the option selected by you will be effective for 60 days.
The company says that if you select the Show more option, it will temporarily increase the ranking score of that post and other similar posts. If you select the Show less option, this will temporarily reduce the ranking score of the post.
Posts will be available for 60 days
A Facebook spokesperson told TechCrunch that the option you select will affect the posts you see for 60 days. The company says that it chose this time frame because its research has shown that people want their chosen priority to last for a few weeks. That’s why Facebook also wants to keep up with the changing preferences of the people.

Option will appear from time to time
Currently, Facebook only lets you hide posts from people you follow. Now the company is releasing the tool for your friends’ posts and recommended posts. Let us know that from time to time, Facebook will show users the option of Show more and Show less. Soon, users will be able to access the button at any time by tapping in the three-dot menu in the top-right corner.
will make artificial intelligence more responsive
The social network says it can make its artificial intelligence (AI) system smarter and more responsive by giving users a new way to provide direct feedback about rankings. In addition, Facebook is testing a new setting that will allow users to customize how much content they see in their feed from friends and family, groups, Pages and public figures. The new settings will allow users to choose which posts they want to see more or less.
Redressal of user complaints
The company said in a blog post that such features can help you search for more content. But if you do not want to see more content, then you can reduce it. The company said that with these changes it is possible that Facebook wants to address complaints from users who say that their feed is filled with too many posts that they are not really interested in.
