In the meantime, enjoy some of the comedy and incoherence of your fellow Facebookers.
Yet again, Facebook has updated the design of their newsfeed in an attempt to guess which updates are important. As always, the rabble are grabbing their torches and pitchforks. It doesn’t appear that there is a way to rollback the redesign, but as a workaround, I’d suggest that you create a list of people you actually care about (or put them in Close Friends) and bookmark that page. As of right now, that page (and any list, for that matter) still displays updates in reverse chronological order.
