Developers of the social network Facebook have added a new feature: another line of news “Explore Feed”. In the Russian version, the tab was called "Interesting". It is formed on the basis of user preferences, similar subscriptions, likes of his friends, and geolocation. With the help of this innovation, they hope to keep users even longer on the social network site and open a new source of monetization. Advertisers will soon be able to publish their content in this stream. In addition, company representatives say that the “Explore Feed” will help to overcome the "filter bubble" in which the user finds himself when he forms his own newsfeed and does not see any alternative sources.
