How to make sure you see my Facebook posts

Apparently if you've "liked" a page, you don't always see its updates on your feed. Facebook is trying to make those of us with pages pay to make sure all of the fans--fans we already have--see our updates. Seriously.

This is true not only of my page but any page you "like." Here's how to make sure you see not just my page but the others you want to see in your feed, courtesy Always Upward blog:

How to keep receiving posts from FB pages you’ve “Liked”

1. Find a page you’ve “liked.”

2. Hover you mouse over the “Liked” button. Which may or may not work.

3. Try clicking the “Liked” button. That also may or may not work.

4. After clicking “Liked,” try hovering over it again. This may or may not work.

(Sensing a theme? Access isn’t consistent…nor intended to be easy, I have a feeling. Please keep trying.)

5. Once you (finally) get a drop down menu, confirm “Show in News Feed” is selected.

In theory, this should put all more posts from the page back in your newsfeed.

Or not.

Hard to know, since the only way to test it is to keep visiting every page you’ve “liked” to compare their posts to your newsfeed.

(Which no one has time to do. We understand.)

Indeed. But if you wanna see what I'm up to via FB, this appears the only way for it to consistently happen.

... that it doesn't work consistently, and the only known way to make something approaching it work is described in this follow-up post.

Not that any of this surprises me in the slightest. If there is one thing Facebook seems to be consistent about, it's the many and varied inconsistencies in its interface and privacy policies that it is foisting on its members (aka its product). If you want consistent feeds, I suggest using something that was created to deliver that, namely RSS.
