Facebook Adds a New Explore Tab to Its iOS App

With Facebook trying as much as possible to stay on top of the social networking game, the company keeps exploring ways to keep users on the platform as long as it can. The launch of Gameroom, Marketplace, Live videos and more are just a few of the many features the social networking giant is employing to ensure its platform maintains the lead.

Facebook has just added a new Explore tab to its iOS app. Similar to the “Search and Explore” tab on Instagram, this tab collates stories, photos and videos that might interest you on Facebook. The stories shown in the new Explore tab are not from your friends or families, these are posts from several Facebook pages and you don’t even have to like them.

It appears posts shown in this new tab are suggested based on your likes and interests. The feature doesn’t seem to be available to everyone. For now, it doesn’t appear lIke the Android version of the Facebook app has the feature, the latest update still doesn’t show it.

It doesn’t appear on the iPad too. It’s possible this feature is only being tested, but it’s certain that it would be rolled out for all users in the coming weeks.
