How NOT to be Invisible on the New Facebook Newsfeed
Feeling as if your Facebook Newsfeed is filled with updates from all the same people lately? You’re not crazy – well, at least with regard to this issue.
Facebook has once again changed the game on us and, as a result, it’s likely that your settings are such that only a small section of your friends are seeing your updates, photos, links, etc.
And dudes, the Farmville fanatics are about to jump off the barn! Can’t have that, now can we?
The latest round of Facebook changes impacts the Newsfeed. The default setting is set to show posts only from people with whom you’ve interacted recently and/or interacted the most with.
This is true on both business and personal pages and it’s very likely that if one of your friends or business fans hasn’t liked or commented on one of your posts in the last couple of weeks … well, you’ve probably got the invisible suit on. And their feeds are likely invisible to you as well. Super! We love you, Facebook.
Thankfully, unlike the new Pages design that so many are lamenting (we don’t hate it so much), there’s a fix. And it’s super easy. Here’s what you do:
Scroll down to the bottom of the Newsfeed, located on the Home Page and click on “Edit Options.” Select “Show Posts From” and select the setting “All Of Your Friends And Pages.”
We’ve not yet discovered the fix for Business Pages but as soon as we do, will update this post. Or, if you’re reading this and have discovered a business page fix, please let us know in the comments section.
Now go on with your bad selves and do something useful. Until, of course, the next Facebook change that gets us all in an uproar.
