1. Top Stories or Most Recent
The quickest and easiest edit to your news feed is to be found at the top of your home page.
Click on “Sort” and you get the option to see just “Top stories” or “Most recent.”
“Top stories” means you’re letting Facebook’s algorithms decide what’s most important.
Facebook says this is decided by “lots of factors,” including your relationship to the person who posted the story, how many comments and likes it got, what type of story it is, etc.
The “Most Recent” option will return to your news feed to a more chronological order.
