1. Legacy Contact to Care of Your Account After You Die
Have you ever thought that what will happen to your Facebook account after your death? You should because it may be a medium of remembering you for your family members and friends.
So, finally Facebook lets you add a legacy contact to handle your account after you die. You can add any of your family member or close friend as legacy contact.
You Must Be Known:
- Your Legacy Contact will be given the ability to write a post at the top of your timeline, respond to friend requests, and change the profile and cover photos.

Other than this, you can also choose to not add a Legacy Contact and instead delete your account on your death.
2. Customize What You Want to See in News Feed
Most of the time, the Facebook news feed overwhelm with waste stuffs or something we don’t like, due to which miss the posts from people we care about.
Due to this reason Facebook made a change in its news feed settings by which you will now be able to customize what you want to see in the news feed.

Facebook’s new On This Day feature lets you look back at photos and memories on Facebook. You can also share your Facebook history one year ago or like this.
