Facebook is rolling out an update to allow users to more easily view their friends’ posts chronologically, in an attempt to keep people coming back amid intense competition with younger rival TikTok.
Facebook gives users new way to see all their friends’ posts
Facebook is rolling out an update that enables its 2 billion daily users to more easily view their friends’ posts in chronological order.
The new feature is the company’s latest attempt to keep people coming back to its social network amid intensifying competition with its trendier rival TikTok.
The changes announced on Thursday will offer two different perspectives. When Facebook users open the app, they will initially see the usual news feed featuring posts selected by an algorithm that the company says is designed to highlight topics and friends most likely to appeal to each individual’s tastes and interests.
The main feed on the newly dubbed Home section will also include an option to look at short videos called Reels – Facebook’s clone of TikTok.
