If you’re like one of the 1.7 billion people around the world who use Facebook, you already know how great it is for keeping in touch with family and friends. Even if you update your status, upload photo albums, or share videos, there are some things you might not know about. Here are 4 tricks you should try with your Facebook account.
Facebook has a new feature that allows you to decide which ads you want to show up on your newsfeed. You can choose ads based on categories that interest you, and de-select those that you don’t want to see. Click on the following link to choose your Ad Preferences.
The next time your friend has a birthday, don’t just post a quick text message, use Facebook’s birthday video cam. In just 15 seconds you can leave a great message using one of six background filters that your friend is sure to love. Just follow the bar pop up that reads, “Record a birthday video.”
If you like to read some of the articles your friends have posted, but don’t always have the time to do it, you can use the bookmarking feature. Just click on the arrow next to the post, then select, “Save link.” When you want to read it later, go to your Favorites Bar and select Saved.
Did you know you can play a game of basketball or soccer with Facebook? If you send a basketball emoji to a friend in Messenger, click on the basketball and you can enter a game of free throws. As long as you keep making baskets, you can play forever. If you send a soccer ball emoji, you can play a game that involves keeping the ball in the air as long as possible.
