The changes announced, focus on two main areas: Follows and Un-follows of people, pages and groups and Newsfeed feedback.
Regarding unfollowing and following people, pages and groups, Facebook will now show users a list of the top people, pages and groups they have seen in their newsfeeds over the course of the week. Users can chose whether they want to see these informations sorted by people, pages or groups or see a summary. Users will also get to see who they’ve unfollowed and choose whether to re-follow some of them. This option can be found on their newsfeed settings.
As far as Newsfeed feedback is concerned, till now, users tapped on the arrow that appears on the top right corner of each post and opt whether they want to see it or hide it. Today, once they decide to hide a post, they will be asked whether they want to see less updates from the user or page. If users choose to see less, then they will be given the option to unfollow that person or page. Users can always refollow a user or a page from their newsfeed settings.
