Facebook Reels Enhanced: Discoverability, Personalization, and Contextual Insights Unveiled

As Seen On


Facebook Reels, a feature that allows users to create short-form videos, has been steadily gaining popularity since its inception. As a response to this growing demand and to further enhance the user experience, Facebook is introducing three new features: Discoverability, Personalization, and Contextual Insights. These improvements aim to make Reels more enjoyable and engaging for users while also providing insights for advertisers. In this article, we will delve into the details of these three features.

1. Discovering Relevant Reels:

Facebook is making it easier for users to discover relevant Reels within the app. The appearance of Reels in Facebook Watch has been revamped, and now, users can find Reels tab in the primary navigation at the top of Facebook Watch for quick and easy access. Moreover, a smooth scroll feature has been added for seamless transitions between Reels and long-form videos, ensuring a more engaging and dynamic browsing experience.

2. New Ways to Personalize Reels:

Acknowledging the diverse preferences of users, Facebook aims to provide more control over the Reels experience by offering two new ways to personalize it: the “Show more, Show less” feature and contextual labels.

3. Show More, Show Less:

This feature allows users to influence the types of Reels they see in their feed based on their preferences. With just a few taps, users can select the “Show more” or “Show less” option from the three-dot menu at the bottom of the video player. This option will also appear below Reels and videos in the Watch feed. The feedback gathered from users about their preferences will be instrumental in refining the ranking system, ensuring that it stays closely aligned with individual preferences.

4. Contextual Labels:

To provide a clearer understanding of why particular Reels appear in a user’s feed, new labels will be introduced on the Reels video player. For instance, a label might inform the user that a friend liked the Reel, helping them gain insight into the factors influencing their feed. This transparency empowers users to make more informed decisions about the content they consume.

5. Implications for Advertisers:

These new features offer exciting possibilities for advertisers as well. The intelligent ranking system and contextual labels make it easier to target users with aligned interests, potentially leading to more meaningful interactions and higher conversion rates. Additionally, the increased visibility and impact of Reels within the Facebook app position them as a vital marketing tool for businesses and advertisers alike.

In summary, the introduction of Discoverability, Personalization, and Contextual Insights to Facebook Reels demonstrates the platform’s commitment to delivering a tailored and engaging user experience. These new features not only provide benefits for individual users but also offer valuable insights and opportunities for advertisers. So go ahead, explore these new features, and experience a more personalized Reels journey!

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
