Don’t miss any of our Facebook newsfeed updates


A while ago, Facebook announced a few changes to our newsfeed. Posts of friends and family are now considered as more important than posts from companies. This means that you will see more baby photos, couple selfies and travel pictures in your timeline.

As a fan or a follower, you could miss newsfeed updates from companies you are interested in, and you might see less announcements, promotions or articles.
