6 New Things To Know About Facebook
We are constantly having to deal with changes to the Facebook platform but sometimes we can be prepared. One way I have been able to learn and be just that little bit ahead of the masses is to subscribe to news and updates from some Facebook experts. Here is an excerpt from a recent post (think it was today actually, the 29th of February 2012) that they put up about some changes Facebook is making right now.
New Facebook: 6 Things you Need to Know
Some freaky stuff happened over night to your Facebook profile, and you may be starting to twitch a little about this time.
So far, for each of the following Facebook changes announced on their blog, about 20, 000 people have posted responses complaining about the changes. That sounds like a lot until I tell you that 748,980,000 people didn’t complain. In other words, it’s this all over again.
So here’s your quick and easy guide so you can catch up with Facebook and get on with your day. Click “Click to Continue” to get updated in under 5 minutes…
So what are the changes?
Let me explain… no, there is too much. Let me sum up:
1. Top Stories and Most Recent now in one News Feed
Facebook’s own blog summed up this change nicely: “When you visit Facebook, you should see the things you’re most interested in…” So they are trying to make sure you do by ditching the old Two-Option News Feed, which made you choose either Top Stories (popular stuff in order of popularity) or Most Recent (chronological order).
Replacing it is a single News Feed which shows you both Top News and Recent stories. Which you see where depends on when you last checked Facebook. If you haven’t been on in a while, you see Top Stories because you may miss something important by virtue of not scrolling through all of your friends’ posts since you last logged on. If you have been on recently you see Recent Stories since you haven’t missed anything important and there are not that many posts for you to wade through.
