let me show my appreciation to
the Facebook gods
for answering our prayers —
Disclaimer: as of this moment in time, my FB page hasn’t been updated—yes, I’ve tried relogging, no dice—so I can’t verify if the new Newsfeed settings work, but it’s too great a tweak to keep under wraps.
Yesterday Facebook informed the public that it’s updating Newsfeed settings. Why is this terrific news?
The update primarily affects the kinds of posts people wish to view on Facebook.
You’ll be able to specify what you see and from whom.
Yep, you won’t have to view the one hundred baby pictures your new cousin uploaded…unless you want to; you won’t need to read about the latest trip your neighbor made to the grocery store…unless you wish to; and you won’t find out who your friends are endorsing for Congress…unless you want to.
You’ll be able to personalize your Facebook Newsfeed and limit what you view without unfriending or unfollowing.
See? It is great news.
The below video gives great information on how to apply and utilize the changes. While they’re demonstrated on a mobile device, but is reportedly available for desktops as well.
Enjoy your new Facebook independence and have a great week. Oh, and as always, thanks for following Patti’s Pathways.

Greg looks a bit like Mark Zuckerberg.
Hehe. I thought so, too. Maybe you have to be “Zuckerberg-esque” to work there. O.o
