    Nope - I always have it on Most Recent and it still doesnt show everything. Sometimes I get notifications that a close friend has posted something but it doesnt appear - I have to go to their page to see it. Happens all the time to everyone around me too

    I agree. What's worse is that I often get a different set of "Most recent" posts on my desktop to the ones I get on my iPhone and different again on the android app on my tablet. Very annoying

    That's because facebook has some stupid algorithm that decides what you want to see and who you care about most. (Because adding them to your starred list isn't enough, right?) It's something to do with who you've recently interacted with.

    Don't know if this still works, but a quick google led me here.

    Edit: I guess it makes sense, on paper. Most people probably only really care about a select few contacts. We might prune our friends list and refuse people we don't know but I'll bet a lot of people don't. So yeah. Makes sense to just keep showing the same people based on who you've talked to recently.

    I wish I could delete my facebook. I did a month off last year. It's just too much of a convenient way to interact with my friends. I think basically what I'm saying is that I am one lazy *****. Woof.

    Have a look at the facebook fluff (aka facebook purity) browser add on. You can force fb to show the latest posts first, as well as get rid of all the junk thats thrown at you

    Sounds like Social Fixer.
    Social Fixer even had a dislike button until Facebook put the pressure on them to get rid of it, citing they want facebook to be a 'positive experience' (though, I don't really call getting bombarded with hookup-site ads a 'positive experience'.. Just because I'm male and single doesn't mean I want to hump everything with a pulse!)

    That is what made me strip all my personal information before deleting my account, creepy adverts that start going "Age $age and still single? How Shameful, get hooked up!" :/
