Okay, so today I published a post on how much I actually like Facebook. Part of the post was about how great Facebook is after I unsubscribed from all the people I don’t really know anymore.
Then I went to my feed tonight and found this:
It appears as though Facebook removed the “unsubscribe” option from the news feed, and has only left users with the “hide” option. Hiding previously meant hiding a single post, but now it leads to more options (shown below).
Personally, I’m not a fan. Unsubscribing was so easy before and was a really valuable feature. Now it’s buried and more difficult. I’m definitely disappointed in Facebook here.
