Facebook’s recent change to highlight “Top Stories” and put them at the top of your feed has irritated many users. Many simply want a chronological list of posts by their friends. Although FB doesn’t provide this option, you can get your chronological feed back using the Better Facebook browser extension!
To get started, make sure you have the current version of the Better Facebook browser extension installed. It should be at least 5.941. If you need to install or update, go to http://BetterFacebook.net to download.
If you want a 2-minute explanation of the feature, just watch the video!
Before Better Facebook, you would see a header like this at the top of your feed:
followed by the stories that Facebook feel’s are most important to you. Down the page, you’ll see another header like:
Your chronological list of posts will begin here.
By default, Better Facebook will automatically remove those headers and return all posts in your feed to chronological order! But if you want to disable this sorting of posts, you can easily do that by unchecking the feature in the Better Facebook options:
The option to show or hide the triangle indicator on Top Stories can be found in the Posts tab of Options:
Be sure to “Like” or “Share” this post to let your friends know how they can get their chronological feed back too!
If you have any questions or comments, the Better Facebook Page on Facebook is a user community of over 200,000 users. Check it out!
I hope this helps, and stay tuned for even more features, fixes, and helpful videos coming soon.
