Getting the Most Out of Your Facebook Updates

Did you know that if you have more than 250 Facebook friends, you’re probably not seeing all of their updates in your news stream? Do you care? Do you want to see those updates? I love scrolling through my news stream on a daily basis and seeing what my pals all over the world are up to. If you feel the same way, you might want to take a minute, update a setting and see more friend updates in your news stream.

It’s easy – here’s what you do:

On your home page, top right hand side, select “most recent” and it will bring up all the most recent updates. Scroll to the bottom of the page and select “options.” From there, change the setting from 250 to 3000 (or any “big” number like that).

That’s it, you’re done. And, if you want more information and terrific tips about maximizing your Facebook pages, Mashable’s Facebook Guide is hard to beat – and worth every minute of the read.

    Limiting the number of updates makes sense, but I never knew it limited the number of friends you can be updated on! Thank you for the tip.
