Facebook is testing a new Featured Topic feature for its News Feed area

Facebook is reportedly working on a tool in the Facebook News Feed area that provides customised links based on users’ personal interests.The new tool is called ‘Featured Topic’ and according to Facebook is designed to help users discover stories that matter to them first.

This is the latest effort by Facebook Inc, in its bid to increase the amount of time people spend on the world’s largest social network. Earlier this month, it was reported that the company is also testing a new video platform to rival the likes of YouTube and Netflix.

Facebook has also recently confirmed that it will soon be rolling out its ‘Stories’ feature – which has been deemed a failure by some critics – to the desktop version of its network.

A MUFC fan with serious love for gadgets and all things tech. Not the movie-loving type, more like the kinda guy you'll see with a PS4 controller. I like good music - any type, as long as it sounds good. Oh and I'm a very picky eater too. Apart from science and tech, I follow all kinda stuff in politics, sports, business and entrepreneurship.
