New Facebook Settings are Limiting What You See in Your News Feed

Have you noticed that you are only seeing updates in your news-feed from the same people lately? Have you also noticed that when you post things like status messages, photos and links, the same circle of people are commenting and everyone else seems to be ignoring you?



The problem is that Facebook has reset every ones default feed exposure so that only about 18% of your total friend list's Status Updates show in your News Feed at any given time... EVER! That means about 80% of your friend/fan list can't see anything you post because the "New Facebook" has a newsfeed setting that, by default, is automatically set to ONLY SHOW POSTS FROM PEOPLE WHO YOU'VE RECENTLY INTERACTED WITH OR INTERACTED WITH THE MOST.

So in other words, for both business and personal pages, unless your friends/fans commented on one of your posts within those few weeks or vice versa - you are now invisible to them and they are invisible to you!



HERE'S THE FIX:

Click on your profile name at the top right of your Facebook Page. Then click on "Friends" (Your Friend List), a scrollable list of all your friends will load. You will need to click on the word "Friend" next to each of your friends in your list that you want to receive "All" of their updates from in your "News Feed" then choose "All" and go to the next one and on and on until you have reset everyone that was reduced for you. The only way to let any of them know this has happened to them is to either FB email, open a chat, text them, or share this article.

If you like this or know others that need to know about this please do repost, forward, tweet, google plus. The more we inform the more we reopen channels of communication.
