Facebook starts asking why you hid a News Feed post

gawker2

Facebook appears to be testing a questionnaire that digs deeper into the reasoning behind why someone hides a post. Websonic.nl and Post Planner noticed that Facebook is asking users why they’ve hidden something.

Facebook does this when a user hides a sidebar ad, but now it appears that it is testing this functionality within the News Feed for posts. Websonic.nl pointed out a questionnaire after a personal post, and the above screenshot from Post Planner shows that Facebook is also asking users for the reasoning behind a hide of a page post.

As Facebook constantly tweaks its post-sorting News Feed algorithm, feedback like this is important, at it allows users to tell what they want to see (and what they don’t want to see) in News Feed.

Readers: Have you been asked this?
