Facebook News Feed: ‘Put the People You Love at the Top’

Facebook rolled out a new way for users to control which friends and pages appear atop their News Feeds.

The social network said in an email to SocialTimes that starting Monday, most users will begin seeing the reminder note pictured to the right atop their News Feeds, reading:

Put the people you love at the top: We care about showing you posts from people who matter to you. We’ve made new controls that allow you to prioritize friends and family in your News Feed.

Once users select friends and pages, new content since their last visits to Facebook will appear at the top of News Feed, along with a star in the top-right-hand corner, alerting users why those posts are on top.

The remainder of posts in News Feed will appear as they usually do.

Readers: What do you think of this new News Feed feature?
