Less news in your Facebook feed: How to see the pages you want

Yet Facebook also has said that it will surface content from "reputable publishers", ranking news sources based on user evaluations of credibility.

You can also review and change your preferences by going to your News Feed Preferences.

CEO Facebook Mark Zuckerburg recently announced big changes in the news feed which resulted in less air time for posts from publishers, businesses, and celebrities while making it more centric towards friends and family.

This leads to 'selective exposure, ' he said, where people are more likely to select news sources that they already agree with. Breaking down this major decision by Facebook starts with evaluating why it was made in the first place, who it'll be influencing, and how. "Even if it's a little out there, if it doesn't shake your political ideology or how you see the world, you're more likely to trust it, because that makes sense to you". Relatively new businesses - those without decades or more of track records - could find it tougher to build their audiences.

"Starting next week, we will begin tests in the first area: to prioritize news from publications that the community rates as trustworthy", Facebook wrote in a press release. On the basis of a response from users, Facebook will decide which news outlets are untrusted, instead of asking from experts in journalism.

Zuckerberg has said his goal for this year is to fix Facebook, whether by protecting against foreign interference and abuse or by making users feel better about how they spend time on Facebook.

Founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said news content would soon make up around 4% of what appeared in people's News Feeds - down from 5% before.

The changes come a week after Facebook announced it will show users posts from friends and family and fewer from brands and companies to increase "meaningful interactions" on the site.

The most significant change, Zuckerberg wrote on January 11, will be that "public content" from brands and media outlets will no longer be given as much prominence in users' feeds.

You may also get to have a say in the trustworthiness of a news outlet after Mr Zuckerberg announced he will use member surveys to identify high-quality outlets.

"There was a period in the 70s when most American households watched one of the three major news networks", he said. The company chose to use community input to rank news sources in an attempt to be as objective as possible, Zuckerberg said.
