Question from Connie L.: Hi Rick. I used to get all of your Tech Tips in my Newsfeed, but a few days ago they stopped showing up. Now to see them I have to go to your Timeline page.
Do you know why this has happened? I really like your tips and I don’t want to take a chance on missing any of them.
Rick’s answer: Thanks so much for your kind words Connie. I’m very glad you find my tips useful!
The answer to your question lies in Facebook’s Newsfeed algorithm.
In a nutshell, the Newsfeed algorithm was developed by Facebook as a means of ensuring that only the posts that you really want to see end up hitting your Newsfeed.
The problem is the computer code that makes it happen does a really poor job at making those decisions.
If you happen to go a few days without “Liking” or “Commenting” on a particular friend’s posts, Facebook just assumes that you aren’t interested in seeing that friend’s posts anymore and they stop placing them in your Newsfeed.
Luckily, there’s a very easy way to force Facebook to display ALL of a given friend’s posts in your Newsfeed even if their algorithm thinks you really don’t want to see them.
