Facebook's new experimental feature shows you status updates you might have missed otherwise. Mashablehas spotted a box marked "What friends are talking about," which lists a few of your friends' posts in a single box on top of your feed, in the company's Android app. We weren't able to replicate the experience on either Android or iOS (or even on a computer), but that's not exactly surprising. Only very few people get access to the social network's features in their experimental stage, so you'll have to check your own apps to see if you've been chosen.

The company has been making changes to the News Feed for months in order to bring status updates you'd actually want to read closer to the top. This test feature, which could change the way you interact with your friends' posts, is most likely part of that effort. As always, Facebook could eventually give this feature a wider release, but the company could also pull it down, depending on whether it does well during the test period.
