FYI: Facebook does not show you all of your friends status updates:
Did you know Facebook filters out many of your friends and business pages that you like from your newsfeed? The “newsfeed” is where you see all of your friends updates when logged into Facebook. Due to so many status updates, Facebook has to attempt to only show you the most relevant updates. The issue is that Facebook doesn’t truly know who and what is most important to you.
How does Facebook decide who is important to you? If you interact with a status update from a friend or business page on Facebook, then Facebook takes this as a signal that you care about this person/page. So, if you comment, click like, click share, or click on a link that counts as signal that this person or business is important to you.
Example: Your brother posts on Facebook once a month. Your neighbor who you’re only friends with on Facebook because you don’t want to hurt his feelings posts 10 times per day. You happen to comment on his post about neighborhood dogs pooping in his yard. If you do not do what we recommend below, you are more likely to see your neighbor’s status updates then your brother’s updates.[box]We love Facebook…we just want you to know how Facebook works so you can make your newsfeed more valuable.[/box] [fblike]
Want to take control over your Facebook newsfeed?
Step 1: When you are looking at the newsfeed of your friends updates, at the top you’ll see a SORT. Click on SORT and change it to recent stories first. This will make your Facebook newsfeed chronological – not some random order where Facebook decides what is most important for you.
Note on step 1: You will have to do this each day because Facebook resets this preference daily.
Step 2: Let Facebook know who truly are the most important to you. If you put your mouse over one of your friends status updates in your newsfeed, you’ll see a drop down arrow in the right corner of their status update.
Left click on the drop down arrow. Choose to see all of their updates [brother], most of the updates, or only their most important updates [neighbor]. By making these selections, you will take control over what Facebook presents in your newsfeed.
The only way you have to let Facebook know that a business page is important to you is to interact with most status updates from the business by clicking LIKE on the update, share, or commenting.
