Facebook Top Story

After a few thousand update and many complaints, Facebook feels it know what MY “Top Stories” are. I say, “Sorry Charlie, I don’t think so. I want to be the controller of the information I seek.” I have looked on my forums and blogs about it and really found nothing. I did find where if you change the language from English US to English UK that would fix it. Well it did for a few days. Then it went right back to the old way with Top Stories at the top of my news feed.

A while ago I used a FireFox extension called Better Facebook and thought I would try it again. Guess what, it fixed it.

Here are the steps if you use Firefox:

1. Click on Tools –> Add-Ons
2. In the search area in the top right corner type “Better Facebook” (without the quotes).
3. Click install, and restart Firefox.
4. Login to Facebook and follow the wizard that pops up. You should see the screen above, make sure you put a check mark in “Force the news feed to be chronological”
5. Click next all the way through and when your done with all 10 screens you will notice your Facebook change.

At a later date if you want to tinker more with Better Facebook there are some cool features, like themes, but none as cool as fixing Top Stories.

This does not only work on Firefox, it works on Safari, Chrome, Opera, and Grease-Monkey web browsers.

NOTE: This will not work on Internet Explorer.
