2 Facebook Apps to View and Manage Your News Feed

Filed under Social Media

Everyday, most of the Facebook users receive a variety of news feeds from their friends, family, colleagues and pages they’ve subscribed. If the posts received are too many, it’s not easy to go through all of them. And it’s even harder if most of the posts are unimportant junk. Although Facebook does provide us some features where we can filter our posts by photos and links, unfortunately that’s not enough to customize the news feed based on what we want to see.

So for those of you who want more controls over your news feed, here we would like to introduce 2 web apps that will help you get updates from people you care about as well as the information and news you’re interested in, in a more organized way.
