When the Facebook news feed revamp was first announced, it caused a lot of confusion. At one point, you might have wondered what happened to a status update a friend just posted, only to find it buried under a pile of other ones Facebook thinks is most important to you. If you went from confused to downright annoyed at this change, you'll be glad to know that Facebook has recently added an option that lets you have your old, chronologically-ordered news feed back.
Facebook Engineering Manager Mark Tonkelowit announced that you can now reorder the status updates in your news feed based on the time they were posted. Below your status update text box is the Sort pull-down menu where you can find the Recent Stories First option — click it to bid your current news feed arrangement farewell.
Don't worry if you can't see this option yet — it'll be available to you as it rolls out to more accounts in the coming weeks. If the revamped news feed is merely one of your Facebook woes, however, you can try third-party fixes to address your other grievances such as the Chrome extension that nullifies the equally-disliked Ticker and even the Timeline.
