In 2011 Facebook updated the News Feed to show top stories and most recent stories in one feed, and the option to highlight stories to make them top stories, as well as to un-highlight stories.
In response to users' criticism, Facebook later updated the News Feed to allow users to view recent stories first.
Facebook is a social network service website launched on February 4, 2004.
This is a list of software and technology features that can be found on the Facebook website and are available to users of the social media site.
This has enabled spammers and other users to manipulate these features by creating illegitimate events or posting fake birthdays to attract attention to their profile or cause.
An integral part of the News Feed interface is the Mini Feed, a news stream on the user's profile page that shows updates about that user.Unlike in the News Feed, the user can delete events from the Mini Feed after they appear so that they are no longer visible to profile visitors.
