Facebook’s algorithm is fine tuned for engagement. It has your potential friends to connect with, apps to use, pages and groups to share and discuss topics. In doing so, lot of things are shared between you and your friends. It includes status updates, images, videos and more stuff. But not always you like seeing all these stuff. Sometimes you want certain updates from one friend, and something else from other friends. This is possible by personalizing the feeds stream. Following are 4 easy ways to control stuff that appears in your Facebook news feeds,

  1. Decide what to view from friends: To see certain updates – say only status updates, no images and videos from a friend, first goto his profile. Hover on the friends buttons; click ‘Settings’. This will open up the types of updates to select. By default, all will be checked. Here uncheck the type of updates you don’t want to receive from the friend.
