Facebook wants users to continue viewing their News Feed as seamlessly and as quickly as possible, even when the Internet connection is poor.

The company said that it is implementing a number of changes in order to deliver relevant content in the News Feed at times the user has a slow connection. Likewise, it is also enhancing the way its users would post a comment, which will remain possible even offline.

"If people's News Feeds aren't loading because of poor Internet connections, we can't show them the most relevant stories," said Facebook.

The company announced that it is now testing an update that checks if downloaded stories on the user's device are not viewed yet. All of these unseen stories are then ranked according to relevance and whether they have available images. By doing this, users are spared from the trouble of waiting for fresh stories through a spinner.

"When we receive new stories from the server when you're back online, we load and rank those stories normally," added Facebook.

Users would automatically view ranked and previously downloaded stories at the start of every app use. They can also pull down to refresh the News Feed or simply scroll through.

New stories will be retrieved periodically throughout the day whenever the user has a reliable connection. This will ensure a way to deliver stories that are up to date.

"Now you can comment on posts and the comment will be posted whenever you next have a connection," said Facebook.

So far, users have been able to share and like posts even when they're offline. Adding this functionality of posting comments while offline can become handy when there's a need to comment on personal issues or milestones that are important to the user. These can include posting a comment on a friend's wedding, engagement, birthday, job promotion and more.
