The main feed stories now can be highlighted by selecting the arrow which appears in the top side of the feed & when you click it, you can select “This is a Highlight”, this feature would most probable help facebook to show the feed in the main feed area (may be it is some sort of ranking system), but what is the actual use of this feature is still not known.

    I think the changes suck and that FB needs to stop messing with things.They change things WAY too often. Save it all up and do it once a year or something. Maybe they could make some changes optional! That would be nice.

    Getting tired of it.
