Why your favorite Facebook fan page posts aren’t showing up in your news feed.

You might have noticed that some (or many) of your favorite Facebook fan pages have started disappearing–again–from your news feed on Facebook. Thanks to a recent Facebook update that eliminated Facebook Edgerank, entirely changing how Facebook handles your news feed, it’s like Groundhog Day, sigh.

How to make sure you see fan page updates on Facebook | Cool Mom Tech

Well, here are the 3 simple steps you need to follow to make sure you’re seeing the fan page posts you want to see on Facebook.  -Julie + Kristen

1. Go to the fan page. Then, right under the header photo, make sure the Liked button is checked.

2. Next, mouse over the “Liked” button and be sure that “Show in News Feed” is checked.

3. Then, in the same drop-down menu right underneath “Show in News Feed” you will see a “Settings” option. Click on that and check “All Updates.” 

The recent changes on Facebook seem to have made the default for your favorite pages “Most Updates” which then allows Facebook to determine what is important to you, instead of you determining it yourself. 

4. Last, the more you engage with a page–sharing, liking, commenting–the more likely you are to continue to see the updates in your own feed.

    Do you know of any updates for this problem? “Show In News Feed” is no longer an option when you mouse over the “Liked” button. And even though I’m “Following” the liked page, I still don’t see all of their posts.
