Some iPhone owners also reported having seen the Explore tab introduced on iOS back in January this year.
But now it's being rolled out much more widely (though not for everyone, I updated my Facebook app this morning and the rocket was nowhere to be seen.
If the second news feed gets picked up properly and put into the mainstream app for everyone, it means that users will permanently be given two options at the bottom of the app when they open it: 'Home' and 'Explore'.
The 'Home' tab will contain all the uploads and shared posts of your family and friends; whereas the 'Explore' tab will use its genius technological capabilities to work out what kind of articles and videos you might be interested in, well, exploring.
This is new
It's thought that this 'Explore' tab could potentially be used in future as a means of addressing how much of a social media 'bubble' many of us find ourselves in; we're only exposed to the views and opinions of those who tend to be similar to us, whereas this might broaden those horizons a bit.
It's not currently known if or when the new feed will move from testing stages into proper application, but the funky new rocket logo plus the fact that its been tested on both iOS and Android,seems to indicate it's more than likely to become a new feature for one and all.
