Facebook news feed not updating
Unfortunately, a lot of us think of our Facebook feed as a chronological feed of events that are happening.We check-in multiple times each day, expecting that new things will have occurred since the last time we checked.Another strange one is the fact that Facebook loves to show you the “Top Stories” that it thinks are important in your life and while that works for some, there are those of us who prefer to see our feeds in chronological order.In the desktop view of Facebook, there is an option to change from Top Stories to Most Recent, but Facebook only maintains that setting for about 24 hours and then it automatically reverts back to Top Stories.If you do that, it auto-fills “most recent posts” and clicking that takes you to the Most Recent view of your timeline. Once you do that, it saves “most recent posts” at the top of your recent searches.That means, you can simply click on the search bar and then click on the top item in your recent searches and it gets you there in two taps.
The good news, is that there is an easy way to adjust Facebook so that it ALWAYS shows you top stories. Instead of using the standard to access the site, try clicking this link instead:https:// sk parameter at the end of the URL, Facebook will now always display the most recent stories and will cause the banner to appear that indicates you’re viewing Most Recent.
Hope that helps your readers, keep the tips coming.–Wesley…and sure enough, Wesley is correct.
I opened my Facebook app on Android and typed “most recent” and the menu auto-populated the most recent posts option.
