Since my last blog post about missing friends on Facebook was posted, Facebook has changed once again.
If you seem to be missing some of your friends status updates you need to go and fix your new subscribed setting.
Yes, even if you are friends with someone does not mean you see all of their posts and updates. (Sometimes that could be a good thing I guess.)
Either way to fix it is pretty simple although it will take a bit of time if you have a lot of friends.
The easiest way is to go to your own profile and then click on your friends list.
Once your friends list is displayed you need to hover over each friends name which brings up a box with their friends and two buttons, one button is your friends list button where you can assign your friend to a list and the other is the subscribed button.
When you are friends with someone you are automatically subscribed to them but Facebook has subscribed you to ‘Most Updates’ (at least that is what I have).
You should subscribe to ‘All Updates‘ if you don’t want to miss any of the posts your friends might make.
Of course this will now show you everything including games… :(
However you can control the games and other stuff in your news feed directly by clicking on the down arrow next to the post and clicking on ‘Hide all by (Game Name)’.
I hope this was helpful to you and if you have any tips, please share in the comments below.
