Facebook has announced a new feature for the News Feed.

Now, when multiple friends post about the same topic, Facebook will group those posts together in the News Feed. It’s a small change, but it’s one that may organize the feed, which some complain has become too cluttered.

Facebook announced the update in a post on the company’s official page.

“You may notice some of your News Feed stories are now grouped together by topic,” Facebook wrote in the brief announcement. “We want to show you the most relevant and interesting information, and this test is designed to show you trends among what your friends are saying.”
