For a while, my Facebook Android App had a little rocket ship along the top menu icons. It turned out this little rocket ship lead to something called the Explore Feed, which was a cool little section on that allowed you to view posts from pages you might like but haven’t necessarily “liked” the page itself. The rocket ship icon shifted position several times, so I figured Facebook was just trying to figure out the optimal placement for it. I really liked the explore feed but after a month or so of the icon moving around, it disappeared completely. I thought Facebook had simply given up on their little project.
This is where the rocket ship icon used to be
But where is it?
There’s a hard way and an easy way to get to the Explore Feed on Facebook’s desktop web application.
The hard way (which really isn’t that hard) is to click on “see more” on the explore menu on the left side of the web application:
Then scroll down and click on the rocket ship icon or Explore Feed text:
The easy way is to simply type the Explore Feed URL in your browser. That URL is www.facebook.com/explore/ or you can just click that link.
Click the three-line menu icon to the right:
I have it under favorites as seen in the above image. I’m not sure it will be there for everyone (those may just be the top options I’ve selected before), so I’ll provide additional steps to find it.
Scroll down to the apps section:
Tap the “See All” and scroll down to the rocket ship icon and explore feed text:
Do I need to tell you what to do next? (Tap the rocket ship icon!) Congratulations, you’re in the Explore Feed!
iPhone / iOs
So, uh, I normally don’t use the iPhone or any Apple products. Hopefully, it’s similar to the Android steps above. If not, can someone provide some details in the comments?
Enjoy your Facebook Explore Feed!
