Facebook users: How to pick what you want to see on your newsfeed

MOSELLE, MS (WDAM) -

Facebook updated its algorithm last week, which will cater more to its users by showing more posts from friends and family, and fewer posts from publishers such as WDAM TV

For many, this is a positive change, and one that can keep users connected with their close friends and family.

But with the recent changes, you might be wondering how you can still see posts from publishers and new sites.

Here are some step-by-step instructions to keep seeing latest posts from publishers.

How to see all posts from a friend, brand or publisher on Facebook:

Facebook has an option called "See First" that allows users to tag profiles and pages to view at the top of their newsfeed when something new is posted.

Step 1: Go to a profile you are already friends with or a page you have already liked.

Step 2: Tap the “Following” button on the mobile app or in the Facebook app and a menu of options will show up. Click on “See First.”

You can do the same procedure on your computer.

Also, don’t forget about these cool features:

Step 1: Visit a page that you like to see regular posts from.

Step 2: Click on the “Liked” button and you will see the same menu options above.

Another cool feature is that you can select what kind of notifications you would like to receive, whether it be posts, videos or links. Click on the gray pencil beside “Notifications.”

Happy Facebooking, everyone!

We have market stuff rolling in and our warehouse is full and we are pricing it. Everything is priced before November ever hits.

    University of Southern Mississippi football coach Jay Hopson consistently declined to look beyond the next game on his team’s schedule, insisting his team maintain that focus as well. But, even should his charges adhere to that attitude, Saturday afternoon’s meeting at Marshall University could mark a milestone in the program’s history while certainly buttressing the Golden Eagles’ postseason profile. Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m. at Edwards Stadium in Hunting...More >>
