A change to Facebook means that you need to ask to see all of our updates
You may have noticed that our Facebook posts aren't appearing in your News Feed as often. We've certainly noticed the views drop, and we miss you. It turns out this drop is down to a change by Facebook to reduce the number of updates from Pages that appear in your News Feed. We're pleased to say that there is a way round this, so if you want all the latest updates from Computeractive it's easy to reinstate them.
Rather than wait for our next update to appear, go straight to www.facebook.com/computeractive (this link should appear in a new tab so our instructions won't disappear).
Hover the mouse over the Like button and menu will appear. Make sure that the Show in News Feed option is selected.
Click on New List. A box will appear where you can select other Pages or Friends to include in the new list. This is handy if you want to include an organisation and people involved with it in one list. Click on Next.
Give the List a name and decide whether it should be public, private or only visible to friends. While it's not relevant for a list including the Computeractive page, do think about whether or not friends will want to be publically associated with a particular page and group. Click on Done to Confirm the changes.
The Lists are arranged in a section called Interests on the left hand side of the Facebook page. Click on a list and then on the Manage list button at the top right of the page. You can select exactly what you will receive notifications of from that list.
