Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) July 28, 2013 -- On July 28, Internet marketing company fishbat responds to an article published on ABC on July 23 titled “Facebook to Let You Say Why You Hide News Feed Posts,” which details the latest feature from Facebook that lets users filter news feed results and give feedback on why.
According to the article, Facebook is planning to release a new feature that lets users of the popular social network provide feedback as to why they chose to hide a post or series of posts from their news feed.
As of right now, when you choose to hide a post from your newsfeed, all the site does is feed the user less content from that person or page. However, they are working on a new way to “better understand why you don’t want to see a photo, status update, article or advertisement,” says the article.
Justin Maas, vice president of client relations at fishbat, says that feedback tools can be handy for many different companies. “Feedback isn’t only helpful to an Internet marketing company,” he says. “It can help people understand what they are doing wrong, or really, what they are doing right. It allows for a chance to directly engage with an audience and fix any problems with content or targeting.”
The article says that the overall purpose of the feature is to feed users more relevant ads. “This will surely interest social media agencies and marketers. They would be able to receive feedback on how well their ads are running on Facebook,” says Maas. It also gives the standard user some idea of what people think of their posts.
“Sure a business would like to see why its ads weren’t effective or why a post didn’t receive many likes, but the new feature’s ability to filter ads more effectively will also be a big help. With the new filter, companies will have an easier time targeting fans. Ads that are totally irrelevant to a user’s interest will be erased from feeds, while relevant ads get more visibility.”
