Facebook changes make it easier to ignore people and pages

From CNN:

Facebook is giving its users more control over the posts and people they see most in their news feeds.

On Friday, the company announced new filters in Settings that show the people, pages and groups you follow that posted the most in the past week, along with a summary. If you “unfollow” someone in the heat of the moment and decide you miss their cat photos, bring up the list of recently un-followed people and add them back into your feed.

There are also new controls so users can opt to see fewer posts from a person or a page (instead of just un-following them outright).
