Facebook will Soon Ask Users Why They Hide News Feed Posts

Facebook is getting up, close and personal. What that means for users is that their personal idiosyncrasies will be taken into account. If there is an ad or a News Feed Post that the majority of users find disgusting or morally reprehensible, they can now let the staff at Facebook know about it. According to ABC News , the social media giant is interested to know that "Why users hide news feed posts?"

This is part of a campaign started by Facebook all the better to gauge the atmosphere of indignation on the sprawling site. When users conceal a certain image, ad or status update, Facebook wants to understand the reasons behind this decision. Why don’t they like it? Do they find it uninteresting? Or do they just find it plain repulsive and obnoxious?

In the next couple of months, Facebook will be sending out feelers to determine the mood of its consumer base. This in turn will lead to a sifting of the variegated content of Facebook thereby separating the wheat from the chaff. The experts at Facebook will then take this feedback from its clientele and act on it. This could be used to hide ads and anything that is too open, profane or irrelevant.

Facebook will give a menu of options to choose from. This increased refinement and depth of subtlety at Facebook is a part of quality control. Some of the content can get pretty offensive if not downright nasty. The greatest litmus test of Facebook lies in separating the valuable from the vulgar. And it is finally turning to its extensive user base to give their value opinions on this matter.
