How to See All Your Friends Posts on Facebook Instead of Posts You Haven’t Seen

More people are seeing Facebook showing them ‘posts you haven’t seen’ on their friends’ timelines, instead of all of the posts – and they don’t like it one little bit. Once your account has been marked as having ‘seen’ something your friend posts (even if you just saw it in passing on your Facebook home page), if you go to their profile to find that post again, it has vanished, as Facebook shows you their ‘posts you haven’t seen’. Fortunately getting those missing posts back and seeing all of your friends’ posts again is easy – here’s how.

It was several years ago that Facebook announced something called ‘Story Bumping‘, where they decided which posts to show you in your newsfeed instead of it being chronological, but now they have brought something similar to individual timelines.

We have yet to run into anybody who likes the posts you haven’t seen ‘feature’. (It’s not surprising that there are articles out there with titles like how to turn off everything that you hate about Facebook.)

Unfortunately, there is no way to actually stop Facebook from hiding posts it believes you’ve already read, so no longer need to see. And as this Facebook community page makes clear, Facebook doesn’t care that people hate it, and want a way to turn it off – Facebook simply shut down comments to the page where people were asking about how to disable it, without even bothering to respond!

But there is a way to get back those posts that you’ve already seen, so that you can see all of your friends’ posts on their timeline, instead of just the ones you haven’t seen yet.

Here’s how.

  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Who would have thought that the fix would be so simple? Damn Facebook and their annoying dictates and presuppositions about what they believe I want to see. Thank you for this wonderful work around.

  2. Yes! Fecking Facebook can really be annoying with stuff like this. Ugh. What happens is (and FB doesn’t care) is that I’ll remember seeing a friend’s post that I wish to comment on or look at the attached article when I have more time, but then can’t find it! THANK YOU for the fix.

  3. Yes I have been reloading, but it still annoys me. The ONLY reason I ever go to a friends page is EXACTLY TO READ a post I have read before, or at least seen before.

  4. Thank you for posting this! I’m glad there is such a simple solution to this annoying behavior.

  5. Thank you SO MUCH! I often go back to find something I’ve read before, and I was flummoxed by this “feature.” I really appreciate your posting this, and will share it.
