Facebook introduced its overhauled News Feed in early March. If you're one of the few who can access the new design, you may wonder how the changes affect what surfaces on the homepage.
While Facebook's algorithms determine by default what appears in your stream, a few additional, new options give you much greater control over what appears in your News Feed. For example, you can choose to view only photo-related posts, music-themed updates, or posts from pages and people you follow via Subscribe (as opposed to simply users you're friends with).
But if you don't want to miss any updates whatsoever, you can kick it old school and set News Feed to view every single post in real time.
The change effectively turns your News Feed into an expanded, visual version of Facebook Ticker. That means you'll not see status updates, but also more granular actions, for example, when your friend likes a photo — even if that photo was posted 48 hours ago. Yes, it's that detailed.
