Facebook Testing Return Of Feed Filters

Facebook is testing the return of feed filters, enabling users to more effectively sort through their latest Facebook news.

In a time not so long ago, Facebook has a feature which enabled users to filter through feed stories based on the type of story and based on where that story originated from. While it disappeared for some time (after first appearing in 2008), one reader has sent us a screenshot of the feature back in the new design.

While almost identical to previous filters, the new design fits in with the existing design of the homepage. While I’m not quite sure why feed filters were pulled in the first place, I’m sure there are plenty of power users who will find the return of these filters to be useful. You can see a screenshot of the filters in action below.

Thanks to Anthony Ramos for the tip!
