Facebook Newsfeed


Published on

An updated version of Facebook's Newsfeed that does away with the two-tabbed interface we’ve been seeing for the past two years now. Before, you’d have to click between ‘Top Stories’ and ‘Most Recent’ . Before, these tabs would update you with the most recent posts even if you had not been on Facebook in a month.

  4. 4. Introducing Facebook’Newsfeed sJust before the f8 developerconference, Facebook rolled out anupdated version of News Feed that doesaway with the two-tabbed interfacewe‟ve been seeing for the past two yearsnow. Before, you‟d have to clickbetween „Top Stories‟ and „Most Recent‟. Before, these tabs would update youwith the most recent posts even if youhad not been on Facebook in a month.Facebook is getting smarter.
  5. 5. Introducing Facebook’Newsfeed s Facebook now merges both types of content into the same feed, intelligently determining how much screen real estate to allocate to your „Top Stories‟ based on how recently you‟ve logged into the site. If you‟re checking Facebook ten times a day at work, then most of the items in your feed will be recent; if you‟re logging in for the first time in the few days, Facebook will try to give you an overview of the most important things your friends have shared.
  6. 6. Introducing Facebook’Newsfeed sThese important stories will bedenoted with a small blue triangle inthe corner, and you can manually tellFacebook if it missed an importantstory, or if you don‟t care for one ofthe items it deemed important.Facebook has also increased the size of photo thumbnails in your feed, whichmakes them nicer to look at (and more inviting to click on).Previously the News Feed items defaulted to chronological order. That view is stillavailable, but below the handful of Top Stories postings.
  7. 7. Introducing Facebook’Newsfeed s Q: How does Facebook determine what to show in the “new” newsfeed? Facebook Answer: "We determine whether something is a top story based on lots of factors, including your relationship to the person who posted the story, how many comments and likes it got, what type of story it is, etc. For example, a friends status update that might not normally be a top story may become a top story after many other friends comment on it.”
  8. 8. Introducing Facebook’Newsfeed sQ: I can no longer view page updates in my newsfeed. How do Iadd pages I like into my Newsfeed?Answer: Technically, the page updates are still there in your newsfeed, just not as easily spotted comparing to before. SinceFacebook has their very own algorithm in deciding which updatesappear in our news feed based on our recent activities and howpopular is the post/page according to our interests. Even so, westill might miss out a whole lot more information from the pageswe love even Facebook thinks they had it all sorted out for us.Solution – use „Lists‟ to organize what you wish to see in yournews feed.
  9. 9. Adding Pages to Your Lists Step 1 - On your homepage, in the sidebar, locate „Lists‟ mouse over to see „More‟. Step 2 - At the upper section of „Lists‟, look for „Create a List‟ button to bring up a pop-up menu. Name your list and click „Create List‟.
  10. 10. Adding Pages to Your Lists Step 3 - Once your list is created, you can select Pages (instead of „Friends‟) to your list: look for „Manage List‟ at your upper right corner. In the dropdown menu, select „Add/Remove Friends‟. Another pop up box will appear and at its upper left corner, select „Pages‟ in the dropdown menu – all pages you liked are displayed in alphabetical order. Start selecting the pages to be included in your list. Now you can manage your list by deciding the type of updates you wish to see in your Page news feed. Hint – Create several lists for Pages You Like instead of just one!

  12. 12. Summary At first glance, Facebook‟s Ticker, Smart Lists, NewsFeed, and the new Profile page are very over whelming. Many people are not giving these features a chance but if you take the time to go through them one by one you will catch on.
