I've been hearing countless complaints today about how everyone hates the new Facebook newsfeed, and especially their privacy concerns about the "Live Stream" ( or "Live Feed"), and want to know how to get their "old news feed back".
I've been getting a lot of email on how to make it go back to the old way so I will share those ways here. Best thing to do would be to please post your experiences with these tricks and let everyone know which one's work and which don't, if any do at all. Also, please click the Like Button above so that we can get the word out to as many people as possible. The more people that work together the better, and if the tricks work, your friends and family may appreciate that you pointed this page out to them.
With that said, even if any of these tricks DO WORK, chances are strong that it probably would be short lived before it stops working. That's just how Facebook is, but at least you got some extra time in your old comfort zone! :thumbsup
Go to Account settings
Select "English UK"
Presto change-o!! Old news feed back!
Go to your account
Go to notifications
At the top right is a box that says "email frequency", Uncheck that box and your newsfeed will show all the posts again
Go to your Home page and anything in the "Top Stories", click on the down-arrow at the upper-right and "un-check as top story"
Now your news-feed will be setup by time-stamp rather than randomly picking "Top Stories!"
Click here to get to the fb News Ticker Remover extension from the Chrome addon store
Click on the "add to Chrome" button.
Now the Facebook Live Stream should be totally gone leaving all of the normal stuff there
Note: The AdBlock Chrome extension has also been reported to work, as well as the below addon
