[MUSIC] Facebook is a great tool. But you're missing out on a better experience if you don't adjust any settings. Here are five ways you can get the most out of Facebook with some simple tweaks. Everybody has at least one friend who posts several times a day. Or just post things which you find really annoying. Rather than removing them as a friend you can unfollow their updates. Go to their profile page and look for a button that says "Following". Simply click it, and their posts won't show up in your news feed. Some websites and apps have a feature called "Facebook login" that lets you use your Facebook Account to sign up to their service. It is convenient but default you give away lots of personal information. To change this, tap the login with Facebook or continue with Facebook button and then edit the info you provide. From here you can choose exactly what is shared, like the friends list, interests, and birthday. Just de-select any options and log in. [MUSIC] Tell Facebook whose updates you want to see first. In the mobile app, tap more, scroll to news feed preferences, select prioritize who to see first And choose the people and pages you like. While you're here, you can also see options for unfollowing or reconnecting with people. For budding artists, the Facebook Messenger app lets you add drawings or text to photos before you send them. Just have the pictures icon in the message window, select an image, and press edit on IOS or the pencil tool in Android. Then you can type or draw as you please before you send it. [MUSIC] If you love to post photos of your kids or pets, there's now a feature called Scrapbook that collects images in one place. Turn it on from your profile page by clicking About>Family and Relationships. And get started. Add your child or pets name and select create scrapbook. Now you can tag them in all your photos and Facebook automatically pulls them all together. For plenty more Facebook tips and tricks, visit CNET. COM.
