Facebook restoring “most recent” on news feed

Facebook has big things planned for the next stage of its development, but is taking a small step back when it comes to its news feed. On Wednesday, Facebook engineering manager Mark Tonkelowitz wrote on a company blog that the social network will again let users sort their news feeds based on what was most recently posted.

Facebook made changes to its news feed in September when it told users that it would tack posts to the top of their news feeds based on how important they appeared to be. After some initial user backlash, complaints about the decision faded to a low rumble, but it could have been enough to get Facebook to reintroduce the option.
