Adding feedback to Mini-Feed stories published by applications

October 31, 2007ByTom Whitnah

In an effort to provide users more feedback options about the stories applications publish about them, we have added a new option to the process of hiding Mini-Feed stories.<br/> <br/> For application-published stories, users can now choose "I didn't do this" in addition to "Hide Story" to inform Facebook of stories that inaccurately represent the user. When a user chooses this option, they will be presented with the additional option of removing the application entirely. This feature is intended to encourage applications to publish Mini-Feed and News Feed stories that are relevant and accurate thereby improving the user experience.<br/> <br/> This feedback will also be used in determining the weighting of application-published stories in News Feed.
