Who Actually Sees Photos on Facebook

I simply do not understand which posts Facebook decides to show and which posts remain hidden. Sometimes Facebook even decides that no more posts are available, when they clearly should be.

I recently received an  Invitation telling me that I needed to click on the arrow next to most recent and then select “Edit Options,” click on “Show Posts From,” and then change the settings to “All Of Your Friends and Pages.”

Can the situation get any more confusing? Why doesn’t Facebook use a form with simple check boxes to control what is seen and what is hidden. Ah, there I go again — trying to make sense of Facebook.

    I’m with you Mark, FB is extremely confusing to me, yet I am very grateful for the ability to positive connect with family that is strung out across the USA. Guess this grey haired granny is just going to have to learn to ride this out. *U* Kathleen
