Facebook has made some recent changes to how they handle your news feed. Technology is ever changing and it seems that you can just never keep up. It’s like a game of cat and mouse. Once you get comfortable with something it changes!
So you have worked hard to find and add old friends that you haven’t heard from in years or maybe you have found new friends with common interest on Facebook and suddenly you don’t see any activity from them in your new feed.
The reason is because Facebook has changed Punwow the default for your news feed. I’m not sure when this change happened, but now the default is for you to only get in your feed, items from friends whom you have recently interacted with. That means that all of those friends that you have found, you could quickly forget about again because you are not seeing any activity from them.
Changing your Facebook news feed back
Fortunately, this is a easy problem to remedy. To change your news feed back to the way that it originally was all you have to do is to log into your Facebook account and click the HOME button first. There, at the top of the page you will see an option that says MOST RECENT. Click on MOST RECENT and you will see EDIT OPTIONS… Click on EDIT OPTIONS and you will see something in bold at the top that says: Show posts from:
This is where you want the option reset. It will be defaulted to ‘Friends and pages you interact with most’. You can change it here back to ‘All of your friends and pages’. Then you will once again get news from all of your friends.
On the other hand…
There is always two side to every story. What about those friends that you really didn’t want to friend in the first place. You don’t want to unfriend them because that may hurt their feelings and let them know that you truly don’t want to be Facebook friends with any way. Well, this is your saving grace. The new default for the Facebook feed will leave them out of your status updates and you out of theirs if you don’t communicate directly with them.
