User Demand Forces Facebook to Restore Most Recent Feature on News Feed

Social networking platform Facebook is reportedly restoring the ‘most recent' feature on the News Feed.

In a blog post (opens in new tab), Facebook said that users will now be able to see the most recent activities on their news feed as well.

The company caused uproar when it had removed the most recent feature in September and replaced it with a feature that allowed users to news feed activities based on importance. The most important stories would be at the top so that users won't be missing anything. The move had not gone down well with users and is back on popular demand.

"Now you have a new way of sorting your News Feed: most recent stories first. You can also continue to view highlighted stories first, followed by recent stories, like what you see today," the company said, informing that everyone will be able to access the service in a couple of weeks.

Users will be able to change the news feed settings using the sort button at the upper right hand corner of the news feed page on Facebook.

The company has made some new changes to the platform and updated its policies to keep Google's Google+ platform in check.
