Facebook's added yet another update to their News Feed. They announced in a blog post that they're adding a 'Sort' button, which will allow you to choose whether you'd like to see highlighted stories first or recent stories first. The way in which Facebook works right now, involves it pushing highlighted stories first. If you're one of the many that protested against this feature, you now have the option to sort your stories from most recent backwards. The update will roll out over the next few days.

The News Feed, even if you set it in reverse chronological order, will in no way be as comprehensive as the Ticker. Facebook previously had 'Top Stories' and 'Recent Stories' tabs on the top of the News Feed page and this update brings users closer to that set up. The social network changed things up for its News Feed in September. The aim of the change was to make sure that users don't miss the important highlights in their friends' lives. Will you sort your Facebook friends' stories by highlight or recency? Let us know in the comments section below.
