Facebook Asking Users How They Like Redesigned News Feed

Not long after Facebook introduced a new look for its News Feed, the site started asking users what they think about it. Facebook has been adamant about making sure that user input has led to a better News Feed, and it appears that the process is not done. Richard Greenfield, a media analyst for institutional investment firm BTIG, posted on the company’s blog (registration required) that some users have been surveyed regarding their feelings about the updated News Feed.

Facebook has prompted select users to take a survey about their experiences with the redesigned News Feed, including the aesthetics and the prevalence of ads.

The survey also asks how much people care about the stories and people that Facebook shows in the default News Feed, as a way of asking if the post-sorting algorithm is relevant to users. It also simply asks if users prefer the old version of News Feed or the new version.

Readers: Have you been prompted to take this survey? Also, how do you feel about the News Feed?
