News feed not updating on facebook
When was the last time you looked at your Facebook feed and actually liked everything you saw?
Note that most of these tricks apply to your Facebook friends, but the same rules can often be applied to pages you've liked as well, so don't forget to give those a thorough cleaning using the same tips once you're done culling your friends lists.How to Do It: Head back to your friends list and scan through your list.If you want to see more or less of a person's updates, click the Friends box and select "Close Friends" or "Acquaintances" to move them to that list. It isn't as good as manually adding all your friends to Acquaintances and Close Friends, but it'll jump start the process and only takes a minute.If you don't want to waste a bunch of time, Facebook has a slightly hidden tool that'll recommend friends for your Acquaintances list that you don't interact with often. Lastly, you really want to fine-tune certain friends, you can do so from the same dropdown menus we've been using thus far.Click on the "Friends" box and select either "Unfriend" or de-select "Show In News Feed." It's that simple.Now that you've got all the unfriending out of the way, you can further refine your feed by telling Facebook who you'd like to see more or fewer updates from.
The easiest way to do this is with Facebook's smart lists, particularly its "Close Friends" and "Acquaintances" lists.
They do exactly what they sound like: Friends on your "Close Friends" list will be shown more often, while friends on your "Acquaintances" list will rarely be shown except in important updates, like an engagement.
Most of you have probably gone on one or two unfriending binges in the past, and it's the most obvious first step in any Facebook cleansing. Maybe you have a friend you want to keep in contact with, but don't want to see every update they post.
Maybe you have a friend that's excessively political or obsessed with cat pictures that don't interest you. Luckily, Facebook has another option: Unsubscribing. You can unsubscribe completely from a friend's posts without defriending them completely, meaning you get the best of both worlds.
How to Do It: The easiest place to unfriend and unsubscribe from people en masse is your Friends page.
Head to your Timeline, click the "Friends" tab under your cover photo, and start looking for people you'd rather not see.
