I’ve been “reliably” informed by a buddy of mine that there is an actual process to get things a little more back to normal on ye olde Facebook News Feed. I’m in the process of trying it, so can’t verify, but thought I’d post it up anyway, because of stuff.

  1. Go to Account Settings, then Notifications, and turn off the thing at the top right. Quite why this helps I don’t know, but never mind.
  2. Go through your news feed and click the little blue triangle at the top left of anything marked as a “Top Story”, to de-set it as a “Top Story”, so you end up with no “Top Stories” at all.

And that’s it. Allegedly that means you’re only left with “Recent” stuff, but we’ll see about that, won’t we?

Won’t we, Facebook?
