Facebook is known for showing you what its smarter-than-you algorithms have determined to be important, regardless of when it was posted. The option to rearrange your News Feed by most recent posts is present, but hidden and a hassle to access on a mobile device.

The new feature, called "See First," lets you designate which of your Facebook friends' posts you want to see at the top of your feed at all times.

According to the report, the feature is currently only available on iOS devices, with plans for Android and desktop access in the near future.
