facebookYou’ve likely seen something in your Facebook News Feeds that annoys you, whether it’s another annoying I’m-on-vacation-and-you’re-not feet-by-the-pool photo or a “Sponsored Post” that keeps reappearing every third day.

Soon you’ll be able to tell Facebook why you dislike certain posts in your feed. ABC News reports that while social network giant already gives you less similar content when you hide a post from your feed, it wants to fully understand your reasoning so it can both provide a better experience for users and also target ads more effectively.
