As someone who spends an unfortunately significant amount of time on Facebook, there are so many things I would like to see less often. Facebook’s parent company Meta has now, decades after its platform was released to the public, given us that option.
What we see in our Facebook feed is often fueled by the much-criticized algorithm. For instance, if you like a bunch of hiking Groups and Pages, interact with a ton of photos of the outdoors, and post about your backpacking adventures, you might be met with more recommended posts from creators and communities related to hiking. As Facebook puts it, “what you see in your Feed is uniquely personalized to your interests through machine learning.”
