Facebook launched some major changes to it’s Newsfeed in the past week, in preparation for their upcoming developers conference, and as usual, many people are frustrated. Normally I’m not one of them. I try to embrace the new changes because there’s not much that can be done to change them. This time however, the change really frustrates me. I don’t like Facebook’s algorithms deciding which of my friends are important and which aren’t, I want to see the entire Newsfeed with all status updates.
So, while I’ve been covering Facebook’s design changes for a while, this time I’m going to go a little further and show you how to change back. Note, I’m not covering how to change the chat box back, because I haven’t been changed over to the new version with minifeed yet, so I can’t play with it. This is just for the main Newsfeed. Also, it’s only for Firefox and Chrome, IE doesn’t support addons.
The first thing you need to do then, is add Stylish to your browser. (There are instructions on the Stylish link above) Once that’s done, you can go to the Stylish database, where I have added it. Click Install with Stylish, and it will be added.
