The thing about Facebook is that you are able to meet new friends, but sometimes the feeds from these friends can get a bit too much for some users, especially if they do not have time to add them as an acquaintance. However, Facebook have clearly been listening to users and are now offering a tool to refine the news feed. You can access this tool by simply visiting your Friends page and by clicking on the Acquaintance List, this will activate the tool and from then on, the user should be able to see the suggestions to customise accordingly.
According to a Facebook spokesperson they said;
“When you add friends to your Acquaintances list they won’t be unfriended or notified,”
They finished off by saying;
“You’ll just see fewer of their posts in news feed.”
