FACEBOOK is finally letting you change the order of your News Feed.
From this week, you can make it so the newest posts appear first.
Right now, Facebook uses an algorithm to decide what to show you first.
That means you don't necessarily see the most recent posts from friends or family first.
Instead, Facebook surfaces content it thinks you'll like.
This could be based on posts you've previously liked, content from your closest friends, or posts that are proving extremely popular.
However, it does mean that you're not always seeing the most up-to-date content.
It's not a totally crazy idea.
For instance, a brilliant post sent while you were sleeping might be missed if it's buried by newer (and less interesting posts).
So Facebook will surface these "premium" posts at the top of your News Feed.
But a new update this week lets you switch between the two methods.
The new feature is called the News Feed Filter Bar.
Simply go to your News Feed and then check out the left Menu.
Go to See More and then click Most Recent to re-order your News Feed.
This will immediately order your News Feed in reverse-chronological order.
You can switch back to the algorithmic version at any time.
It's not the only big change to Facebook this week.
Yesterday the firm added a way for users to block others from commenting on their posts.
