Several people have posted this notice to Facebook recently about missing Facebook updates and because I think it’s important info you need to know about, I’m posting it again here for you!
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, the same circle of people are commenting and everyone else seems to be ignoring you? Or maybe you have noticed that some prominent people you follow have suddenly stopped posting to Facebook suddenly and you’re wondering what happened?
Don’t worry, everyone still loves you and nobody has intentionally blocked you. (Well maybe)
The problem is that a large chunk of your friends and /fans can’t see anything you post and you are missing Facebook updates from them as well! Here’s why:
The “New Facebook” has a news feed setting that by default is automatically set to show ONLY posts from people you’ve recently interacted with or interacted the most with. So, unless your friends and fans commented on one of your posts just before the switch — you are now invisible to them and they are invisible to you! Hence, the issue of missing Facebook status updates.
HERE’S THE FIX: Scroll down to the bottom of the news feed on the homepage and click on “Edit Options”, click on “Show Posts From” and change the setting to “All Of Your Friends and Pages.”
Simply posting an update about it won’t do any good because lots of your friends/fans already can’t see your posts by default. You’ll either have to send out a message to everyone on your list (which I’m not even sure business pages can do and is a rather tedious method) or post an event explaining the situation like this one and invite your entire fan base and/or friend list. You can also tweet about it hoping that most of your fellow Facebookers are also on Twitter.
