Facebook increases the number of algorithms in the main feed

Facebook announced today the addition of two feeds to its iOS and Android apps. Home is the new name for the first tab you see when you start the app, and it is intended for algorithm-based discovery with Reels, Stories, and other tailored content. Then there’s a brand-new Feeds option with recent postings from friends, groups, Facebook Pages, and favorites, but no “Suggested For You” entries.

The two tabs will be available in both the iOS and Android versions of the Facebook app, where they will be visible in the shortcut bar starting today. According to Meta’s news release, the contents of this bar are intended to alter depending on which tabs users spend the most time in, however, tabs can be pinned to ensure their positions do not move. The upgrades are expected to be carried out globally over the next week, according to the business.
