A month after it added event invites to its Stories section, Facebook has announced a new feature to its social media app on Sunday. The feature labelled “Why Am I Seeing This Post” will be available on the News Feed, allowing users to know why a particular post is being shown to them in detail. 

 

The “Why Am I Seeing This Post” feature bears a similar resemblance to the “Why Am I Seeing This Ad” feature which was rolled out to the platform back in 2014. The move comes as Facebook’s attempt at being transparent after a year of being surrounded by controversies that haunted the social media company.
