Some Facebook users have reported that they are seeing a new “rocket ship” button in located below their mobile app right beside the News Feed button.

To explain, it’s a second feed of content created by Facebook. It primarily shows you things that you’re most likely interested in, but it will come from sources that you haven’t liked yet. Basically a whole new world, right?
In a statement by a Facebook spokesperson, they are using it through a global experiment:
“We are testing a complementary feed of popular articles, videos, and photos, customized for each person based on content that might be interesting to them. We’ve heard from people that they want an easy way to explore new content they haven’t connected with yet.”
Do you like it? It’s too early to say if it’s going to stay or not, but we really like that Facebook is experimenting on new ways too view the giant social media website.
