Do you want Facebook to decide what is important to for you to see? Their new settings do exactly that. As the Washington Post Reports:
If some of your friends seem to have become unusually quiet on Facebook, it may not be their fault.An event was created so that you can easily notify your friends about this and urge them to make the proper changes to their settings, here.
Last week, as noted on such specialist blogs as Inside Facebook and All Facebook, the social network quietly changed the settings that govern what updates appear in the News Feed.
Before, clicking the "Most Recent" link atop that list of updates would give you exactly that: the most recent updates from your friends, instead of the automatically edited selection available under "Top News." Now, however, the Most Recent list can itself be filtered: Facebook can hide some updates by friends if you haven't interacted with them on the site recently.
(In a similar move, Facebook now sorts posts on pages from fans by their perceived relevance, not the order in which they were posted.)
To check, click the Most Recent link (twice if you're now viewing the Top News list) and select "Edit Options..." from the menu that appears below it. You'll see a dialog pop open, as seen above; its "Show posts from:" menu will offer a choice of "Friends and pages you interact with most" or "All of your friends and pages." The latter will restore things to their prior working, showing everything from your friends (and the companies, organizations and public figures whose pages you've endorsed with a click of their Like buttons).
