Facebook is changing its news feed…again.

Mainly, users will see fewer posts from businesses, brands and media outlets. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a post Thursday, Jan. 11, that the company’s 2018 focus is to make sure time spent on Facebook is “time well spent.”

How does it affect you? It means you might not see as much local news, sports or breaking news from the Standard-Examiner in your Facebook feed unless you spend time searching for it.

So how do you stay connected with the Standard-Examiner for your community news? It’s easy: 

  1. Visit the Standard-Examiner’s Facebook page, and if you haven’t already, make sure to “Like” our page. 
  2. If you see a “Follow” button, click the button so it says “Following.” If it already says “Following,” move on to step three.
  3. Click the drop down arrow on the “Following” button and select “See First” under the “In your news feed” notification settings. 

You can also stay up-to-date with local news, events, sports and more by signing up for Standard-Examiner newsletters.
