Through their blog, Facebook announced the new update on News Feed, to display the relevant stories only whenever your Internet is getting slow. Moreover, you can comment on a status even though you are not connected to the Internet. They are still testing these two updates.
“In the past, if you were on a poor internet connection or had no connection, you might need to wait for stories to load when you opened News Feed. We are now testing an update in which we look at all the previously downloaded stories present on your phone that you have not yet viewed, and rank them based on their relevance. We also factor in whether the images for the story are available. This way we can immediately display relevant stories you haven’t seen yet, instead of showing a spinner while you wait for new stories. When we receive new stories from the server when you’re back online, we load and rank those stories normally.”
“You can now also comment on stories you see when you don’t have an internet connection. While the ability to like and share posts when you’re offline has been available for some time, now you can comment on posts and the comment will be posted whenever you next have a connection.”
The updates are so relevant to the network situation, which not always available on certain places. Facebook will keep improving and testing the new features and ask for the feedback from the users. They were also testing two features: Collage and Live Video on a small percentage of people in the U.S.
