Facebook prompts users to catch up on unread stories

unnamed-2

Facebook is giving users’ posts another chance to be seen in a feature called Unread Stories. Some users are seeing News Feed posts like the one above, prompting them to check out stories they haven’t seen yet.

This leads users to a page called Unread Stories, which shows a sampling of friend posts they haven’t previously seen in News Feed.

A Facebook spokesperson noted that this is a test:

This is a small test of a unit in News Feed to help people find stories they may have missed.

Readers: Have you seen this?
