  • A simple trick can help: Always call Facebook directly with the URL forLatest news on: https://www.facebook.com/?sk=h_chr
  • The best thing to do is to bookmark this URL in your browser.

That is why the top messages appear

  • So much new information is now pouring into users' timelines that Facebook has to try to cope with the flood of information.
  • Sources for the new messages are friends, pages you like, or groups you join.
  • Your behavior in the timeline is decisive for the selection of the messages - the more you interact with a message (i.e. like, share and so on), the more likely it becomes to see messages from the same source again.
  • The algorithm that Facebook uses to tame the flood of messages is called Edge Rank.
  • The following are included in the original Edge Rank:
    • Proximity between the reader and the source of information (for example: how close are you friends).
    • Importance of the post - how many likes and shares did it get.
    • Topicality of the contribution
  • In addition, the EdgeRank, which was refined in 2014, allegedly works with around 100,000 other factors.
