Return Of Feed Filters in Facebook

In a time not so long ago, Facebook has a feature which enabled users to filter through feed stories based on the type of story and based on where that story originated from. While it disappeared for some time (after first appearing in 2008), here is a screenshot of the feature back in the new design.

While almost identical to previous filters, the new design fits in with the existing design of the homepage. While I’m not quite sure why feed filters were pulled in the first place, I’m sure there are plenty of power users who will find the return of these filters to be useful. A possilbe reason could be that the 'Friends' page has no more status updates. You can see a screenshot of the filters in action below.

Thanks to Anthony Ramos for the tip!
