Facebook, instead of complaining about it, we can turn it into something that is interesting and benefited in all ways. You can make Facebook useful and enjoyable with these following tricks.
The reason why people find Facebook wasting their times is because they don’t get the appropriate updates on the news feed. The most important updates sometimes are masqueraded as the least prioritized and unnecessary updates with the decisions taken by the Facebook news feed algorithms. This annoys us and wastes our time with lot of unnecessary updates.
To avoid such annoying situations and make it beautiful, follow these tricks:
1. Unfollow/unfriend freaks
Freaks, I mean those who share useless fan fight pictures, useless icons and all useless content. Such content will fill up your news feed before any useful content. Facebook’s time engagement algorithm will consider the time you spend of their feed and shows up theirs on top.
2. Subscribe to important people’s updates
There would be some close friends, relatives and important people in our friends list. But unfortunately, due to the mis-consideration of the Facebook algorithm, we will not get their updates first. Facebook enabled a feature to get updates of the important people first. To enable this feature, go to their profile and click on ‘following’ button. Choose ‘See first’ from the options and exit.
3. Create a list of your interests
This enables updates from the lists of our choice. You can create your own list from https://www.facebook.com/bookmarks/lists. You can add people, areas, pages and groups to the list.
4. Block app or game requests
App requests or game requests are the one of the most annoying things on Facebook. One who plays the game sends the request knowingly or unknowingly to one’s friends list. I even blocked some of such friends in my account for the irritation.
5. Set notification preferences
Go to ‘settings’ and navigate to the ‘notifications’ options. Here you can manage every setting related to notification taking from the sound to the birthdays, groups and pages to the content that involves you.
6. Update your privacy settings
This is most important setting of all. You can control things like ‘who can message you’, ‘who can tag you’, ‘who can share things on your timeline’ and more protecting your privacy to the most possible extremities.
7. Join groups and pages
Facebook is a huge community. You can find communities of people grouping or accumulated at a page discussing things and topics of your interest. You can join various groups of your interest and pages to get the specific enjoyable and informative content and make Facebook useful.
Facebook has many benefits if you can see it in the windows of positivity. hope these tips help you make Facebook useful and purposeful. All the best!
