Facebook most recent not updating
NOTE: Unfortunately, when Facebook changed the left-hand column from Favorites to Shortcuts, they removed the ability to add direct links to lists there.
Now you’ll find it buried under the Explore If you’ve read the previous section, you can see why you have little control over which posts your friends will see in their news feeds.
It really depends on how Facebook’s algorithm interprets your friends’ actions and uses that info to select content to show them.
However, if you have specific friends who tell you that they don’t see your posts, you can point them to the section above, especially the part about editing news feed preferences.
The Facebook 10.0 update for i Phone and i Pad has removed the Most Recent Newsfeed from its previous, easy to find position right at the top of the main screen.
This has led to a burst of confusion and consternation and yes, a lot of questions. No doubt Facebook has its reasons for exiling the Most Recent feeds to the sidebar, but no doubt those who make frequent use of it will be less than thrilled and let Facebook know all about it.
You end up missing posts you would be very interested in or you keep seeing the same posts at the top of your feed after you’ve already read them. If you don’t see a post, you’re obviously not going to like or comment on it, which means you’re less likely to see similar posts in the future. 🙂 Fortunately, it’s easy enough to change to: Most Recent To see this version, click the down arrow beside News Feed in the left column and select Most Recent.

The main purpose of Facebook is to keep up with what’s going on with your friends’ lives, so you’d think it would be pretty obvious that scrolling through your news feed would show you a list of what your friends are posting in the order that they’re posted.
What those factors are and how they’re weighted is a closely guarded company secret, but some of the factors are clearly whose posts you like, comment on and share the most; how many likes, comments and shares posts have received from other people; whether or not you’re a friend of those other people; the type of content posted; and trending topics posted across Facebook as a whole.
Unfortunately, for a lot of people (including me) the algorithm doesn’t work very well.
