Facebook's new Explore Feed will serve up even more timewasting content

You might already unknowingly have it activated

In its quest to keep us scrolling Facebook for eternity, the company has rolled out an Explore feed for desktop and mobile users.

Simply exploring

What that does is add posts from various sources to your feed, not necessarily from people or pages you follow. Instead the content will be served to you via an algorithm. Whatever you shared or liked in the past will influence what the new feed shows you.

It's actually to meet demand, says Facebook: “We’ve heard from people that they want an easy way to explore relevant content from Pages they haven’t connected with yet.”

To find the feature on a desktop, look over to the left sidebar to the 'Explore' section and keep scrolling down until you see the 'Explore Feed', which should have a little rocket icon next to it.

For mobile, it'll be under the 'More' menu on the bottom navigation section of the Facebook app.

Will it improve the quality of your life? Probably not. But you will no longer say there's nothing else to do on Facebook (besides stalk your ex, that is).
