Facebook changes ‘Following’ on News Feed menu to ‘Pages and Public Figures’

Facebook has apparently made a small change to the News Feed menu.

Where it used to say “Following,” allowing users to access a feed of pages they’ve liked and celebrities/public figures/prominent users they’re following, it now says “Pages and Public Figures.”

This would make it a little easier for users to understand just what’s in that tab, and would allow users to see a stream of posts from the pages they’ve followed, bypassing the controversial News Feed algorithm.

Facebook revealed the redesigned News Feed, along with the News Feed menu, in March 2013.
