Permalink To 7 Useful Tips to Fine Tune Your Facebook News Feed and See Most Relevant Updates

Facebook counts the number of monthly active users on their site in the billions. With all the activity from friends, pages, groups and so on, it is easy to spend several minutes a day on Facebook. These minutes pile up quickly resulting in you spending an inordinate amount of time surfing through stuff on the Facebook news feed that you might even regard as totally irrelevant.

Let’s look at some of the handful of standouts in VR and AR at CES this year. I am going to avoid talking about Oculus, because honestly, everybody talks about Oculus and there’s other VR and AR platforms out there doing more and taking different approaches than them.
