Facebook is rebranding News Feed after more than 15 years
On Tuesday, Facebook announced via its App’s official Twitter handle that it is rebranding the News Feed to just “Feed”.
In an email sent to The Verge, the company explained that this is “just a name change to better reflect the diverse content people see on their Feeds,” and that it shouldn’t “impact the app experience more broadly.

Facebook is one of the most popular social network apps used in the world with about 2.89 billion monthly active users as of this month. The sheer size of the company means that conflict is inevitable.
In recent months, Meta has faced scrutiny about its platform affecting teens’ mental health, and most recently it faced pressure from the EU due to the way it handled its European user’s data.
