Why has the “I don’t want to see this” button replaced the “hide” button on Facebook?

Anonymous July 13, 2013

Well,I logged in on my account today and I saw that when I try to hide stuff from the news feed, I don’t have the ”Hide” button, but only a ”I don’t want to see this button” and I tested it, of course. Well when I clicked it, the status update was hidden, but I’m not sure what it does and I’m worried about if this button is to tell that the thing is spam or something that as I’m not sure if it is just a new hide button.

    I searched for it and found that even Facebook's help centre even had not been updated about this new I don’t want to see this option.

    I saw it and found that it's a new way to control the feeds you would like to see in your Facebook profile.
