Fine-Tuning Your Top Stories

So Facebook tries to figure out which stories are most important to you, and display them at the top of the News Feed, in the Top Stories section. As noted, however, Facebook doesn’t always get it right. Fortunately, you can help Facebook fine-tune those updates you see first in your News Feed.

When you find an update in your Top Stories list that you’re not that interested in, hover over the story until you see a little down arrow on the right (see Figure 3). Click this down arrow to display a menu of options. Click the Unmark as Top Story option, and this update will be moved into the Recent Stories section—and Facebook will learn from this action.

If you see an update in your Recent Stories section that should be a Top Story, click that same down arrow and Mark as Top Story. This will move the story up top and help Facebook select similar updates in the future.
