How to get all the Facebook pages you’ve LIKED back in your news feed, for free!

As some of you may have noticed–and many have not yet noticed at all, thanks to Facebook’s sneaky EdgeBank algorithm–most of the pages you once “liked” on Facebook are no longer appearing in your news feed. Admins of public business, artist, brand, and fan pages already know our updates, posts, photo shares and the like have gone from about 70-90% of fans seeing our posts to about 10%. It’s part of a system Facebook put in place to encourage page owners to “promote” (read: pay to advertise) their pages, allowing our once free updates to once again show up in fans’ news feeds.

For fans of pages, this means you’re only seeing about ten percent of the pages you’ve spent years carefully collecting, liking, and tracking. Facebook keeps finding ways to squeeze dollars out of people and changing so many privacy and preference settings that interaction on the site is losing its ease and luster. If you do not have the time to regularly visit your favorite liked pages to leave comments, like photos, or click through on links to keep their updates appearing in yor news feed… There is one way to work around your frustrations and missing out on posts by your favorite pages (that may not have the advertising dollars to spend promoting status updates and shares).

Step 1. Click the MORE link, located in the left column of your home screen, near the bottom.

Step 2. In the INTERESTS section, click on ADD INTERESTS.

Step 3. Click on the CREATE LIST button.

Step 4. Choose all of the items you want to include in your new list. Then click the NEXT button.

Step 5. Name your list and select visibility. Hint: Making this list public or friends allows other to see your likes and enjoy the sharing and viewing pleasure!

Step 6. Anytime you want to see all the updates from your favorites, simply click on the list you’ve named (it’ll be located in the left column of your home page). If it does not show up under INTERESTS, you may need to click MORE to expand your left home page column.

Below is a visual step-by-step to get all your favorite/liked pages freely and regularly showing up on your home page again. Image and original document created by www.alwaysupward.com
