Facebook is testing Explore Tab to its Android app, which is available on beta version of Facebook Android app, but no information has given by company that when it will available for all the users.
Explore Tab will show users content similar to what they already engage with on the social media platform. After the Facebook beta for Android update will see two tabs at the bottom of the screen: Home and Explore.
The Home tab shows you content from your friends, groups you are part of, and pages and people you follow. So essentially, the Home tab now operates as your News Feed.
The new Facebook Explore tab seems to work similar to Instagram’s Explore tab and recommends content based on content you have interacted with in the past. It presents content from pages similar to what you have ‘liked’, but not the ones you already follow.
The content shown by the Explore tab on the Facebook Android beta app is a mix of images, videos, and links. Facebook had reportedly added an Explore tab to its iOS app in January, but the feature has not been rolled out to most iPhone and iPad users so far.
