Facebook have rolled out a major new change for the Newsfeed, they’ve added a “Feeds” button in the left column which lets you access separate “Feeds” for Favorites, Friends, Groups and Pages.
If you have the change and are using FBP‘s “News Sort: Most Recent” option, which permanently and automatically keeps your newsfeed page set to “Most Recent“, you will have noticed that when viewing the feed sorted by most recent, Facebook has decided to remove the left hand column and the right hand column (which removes the chat functionality etc) and also the status composer box at the top (though you can still make a post by clicking the 3 by 3 grid button either in the far left column (or in the top navigation bar, then clicking the “Create / Post” button).
Facebook have also removed the “Most Recent” button, that lets you manually select to view the “Most Recent” version of the newsfeed. However, they have actually replaced that button with the “Feeds” button, which when clicked will show your Newsfeed sorted by “Most Recent”. They have also resurrected the “Pages Feed” and “Friends Feed”, and bundled them with the Groups Feed and Favorites Feed, in the “Feeds” Menu. Each of these individual feeds are also sorted by “Most Recent” by default.
If you turn off FBP’s “News Sort: Most Recent” option, your right and left hand column will come back, but your feed will no longer be automatically sorted by “Most Recent”.
I’m looking into the implications of this new code change and how it affects FBP users.
What do you think of this new Facebook change, if you have it?
