Prioritize Facebook News Feeds

In general, Facebook sorts statuses and updates from people and pages on your News Feed based on the date and time that they are posted. Usually, posts and updates from your friends are shown with the most current ones on top. Though this may seem to be the most plausible way of displaying updates, it may not be the most helpful to some.

Having the ability to customize Facebook’s News Feed so that specific friends and pages are shown on top is a good way to get updates from friends and those that matter to you. Now, Facebook allows you to set preferences so that posts from selected friends and pages are displayed on the top part of the News Feed.
