Facebook is running a “small test” of a feature that would allow users to send certain friends notifications about posts they might be interested in.

Facebook is running a “small test” of a feature that would allow users to send certain friends notifications about posts they might be interested in.

Reader Sean Charles shared this screenshot with SocialTimes, saying that he was able to send notifications to 10 friends at a time, and his friends received those notifications.

A Facebook spokesperson confirmed the test in an email to SocialTimes, saying:

When you make a post that is particularly interesting to certain friends, you want to make sure they see it. Instead of tagging friends in the post or the comments section, we’re testing a more discreet option to alert them of your post by sending them a notification.
