Facebook makes it easier to tweak what you see in your feed

NEW YORK (AP) - Facebook wants you to see more of what you want to see.

New tools will help you weed through the clutter of boring, unwanted information, often from long-forgotten acquaintances.

You'll now be able to select the friends and pages you want to see on your news feed first each time you log on. To do this, go to the friend's profile. Click on the box that says "following" and select "see first."

Facebook's computer software uses a wide range of information you give them to decide what to show. This includes what friends you interact with, or whether you tend to like photos, videos or text updates more.

The world's largest online social network announced the new tools Thursday.
