Fixing Facebook Live Feed

As of 23 Oct, Facebook has roll out changes to your home page by offering two views of feeds: a summary view of the most interesting activity that has happened in the last day and a real-time view that shows what is happening right now. So what you do is catch up on what you may have missed while you were away from Facebook and switch to Live Feed  to see posts as they are shared. Personally, I just choose Live Feed as my default. Here is how the two feeds work:

News Feed
When you log into Facebook, you’ll see the most interesting things that happened in the last day in the “News Feed” view. News Feed picks stories that we think you’ll enjoy based on a variety of factors including how many friends have liked and commented on it and how likely you are to interact with that story.

Live Feed
Once you’ve caught up on what you missed, you can click through to “Live Feed” to see what is happening right now. As long as you remain logged into Facebook, you’ll continue to see posts and activity from your friends in real-time. You can edit what appears in this view by clicking “Edit Options” at the bottom of the home page.

The Fix
The problem is Facebook shows only 250 posts and they pick whose posts they want to show base on their algorithm. Thus you may miss important posts because Facebook thinks they know better than you. The above video shows you how to fix this limitation.
