Some social media sites are picking up on this and making changes so we can customize our social media experience.

Take a look at this article on how to customize your Facebook newsfeed. 

You can do this by:

  • unfollowing someone (you are still friends, you just don’t see what they post on your newsfeed)
  • hiding posts
  • personalizing friend newsfeed lists
  • unfriending

If you need help figuring this out, ask your child to help you. They’ll feel good that there is something they can teach you! And it will give you an opportunity to talk to them about how it is important that they are in control of their media, not the other way around.
