Facebook

I know this probably doesn't make sense, but ever since that thing went around Facebook saying; 

"Have you noticed that you only see updates in your feed from the same group of people and pages recently? Have you also noticed that when you post things like photos, status updates and links, then it's the same group of people that comments and likes your updates every time, while everyone else seems to be ignoring you?

Relax, they still love you, and no one has intentionally blocked you. The problem is that a large percentage of your friends can not see anything you post on Facebook! Here's why:

The "New Facebook" has a newsfeed setting that by default is automatically set to show ONLY posts from people who you've recently interacted with or interacted the most with (which would be limited to the couple of weeks just before people started switching to the new profile). So in other words, for both business and personal pages, unless your friends/fans commented on one of your posts within those few weeks or vice versa - you are now invisible to them and they are invisible to you!

HERE'S THE FIX: Click the little blue arrow right of "Latest news" in your newsfeed, or scroll down to the bottom of the newsfeed on the homepage and click on "Edit Options", click on "Show Posts From" and change the setting to "All Of Your Friends and Pages".

my News Feed is totally messed up. I didn't have to change anything as I had it set to 'all', but since this started popping up all over my feed, I don't get as much news as I used to. It's as if everything just slowed down. A lot. 

Am I the only one?
