Are you seeing all updates from your Facebook friends or Pages you’ve Liked? Nope, but you can’t blame it all on Edgerank. Chances are you don’t have the settings correct.
By default, when you Like a Page or add a friend, Facebook sets the amount of updates you’ll see in your News Feed to “Most Updates”. You need to manually change it to “All Updates” if you want to see the majority of posts from that friend or Page.
Step 1: Mouse over the “Liked” or “Friends” button and make sure, “Show in News Feed” is checked. You may also want to turn on “Get Notifications” on Pages you really like so you’ll get a notification every time that Page posts an update.
Step 2: If “Show in News Feed” is checked you’ll also see a “Settings…” option. Click on “Settings…” and if “Most Updates” is checked, change it to “All Updates”.
And let’s get this out of the way before someone brings it up in the comments: It’s highly unlikely you will see all updates if you have enough friends regardless of whether Facebook uses an algorithm or not, but selecting “All Updates” is going to give you the best shot at it.
