Facebook starts testing Highlights, a feed that shows only important life events
For some people, Facebook’s latest iOS update doesn’t only come with bug fixes in tow, it also replaces Requests with the experimental People section. According to TechCrunch, three tabs reside within the People section, including Highlights, which displays your friends’ birthdays and important life events. It’s the place to check if you want to know if someone just had a baby, for instance, without having to go through Candy Crush invites. Other than Highlights, there’s also the Everyone tab, which lists your friends in alphabetical order, and History, which shows Messenger convos from the latest to the oldest. Of course, not everything Facebook tests becomes an official feature, so those hankering to test People out will just have pray for a second round.
