Facebook for iOS was recently updated to version 10.0 with several improvements, including a faster news feed and the ability to draft posts without an internet connection. The option to switch the news feed to “most recent” view, which displays the latest posts in reverse chronological order, was also hidden within the settings of the social networking app. By default, the app now displays posts based on a “most popular” setup. If that isn’t your preference, there is no need to be worried. Here is an extremely simple tip for how to switch back to the “most recent” feed on Facebook…
How to find ‘Most Recent’ feed in Facebook 10.0 for iPhone
Step 1: Tap on More in the bottom menu bar of the Facebook app.
Step 2: Scroll down and tap on the arrow next to Feeds to expand the list.
Step 3: Tap on Most Recent to switch to that news feed.
How to find ‘Most Recent’ feed in Facebook 10.0 for iPad
Step 1: Tap on the three-lined menu icon in the top-left corner of Facebook for iPad.
Step 2: Tap on the settings gear to the right of News Feed. Select Show Most Recent.
The downside to the new version of Facebook for iPhone is that you will have to resort to these measures each and every time you want to view the Most Recent news feed. If you are an iPhone power user like myself, you’ll find it quite annoying that you have to go through a few extra steps to do what you want. Perhaps someone in the community can develop a jailbreak tweak that lets you switch between the most popular and most recent feeds directly from the Facebook home screen.
