Where is the “Most Recent” Option in Updated Facebook iPhone App?

Where is Most Recent in Facebook iPhone App

With the recent update, Facebook’s iPhone app changed one important feature: the “Most Recent” setting of the news feed. If you updated the app recently (to version 279.0), you’re most likely asking, “Where’s the Most Recent option for the news feed?”

While most of the other new functionalities in the new update are cool, this is one feature that Facebook has kind of screwed up. Thankfully, they didn’t completely remove the feature.

Here’s How to Access the Most Recent Feed in the Facebook iPhone App

Step #1. Open Facebook app → Tap on More from the menu (bottom.)

Head back to the News Feed and now, it should load the most recent feed on the app.

It makes sense to check out the most recent status updates, photo updates and other shares from your friends and pages you’ve liked/subscribed to. I don’t know why Facebook wants to change this default behavior to something that’s not so “current.”

In other things that have changed, the Facebook app now lets you edit updates before you post them. This includes viewing and removing suggested links based on your status update/link share.

The other feature is offline posting: you can now use and post your status updates/shares to Facebook even when you are offline (Airplane mode / no data etc.). Facebook will post the update whenever your iPhone connects to a network.

Download the new Facebook app here. If you already have the app installed, go to the App Store → Updates section to update the Facebook.

  1. You are right, the Most Recent option has moved.

    When you open the latest version of the Facebook app, at the top of the news feed, you will see three options namely > Home, Favorites, and Recent.

    To see the most recent posts, simply tap “Recent”.

  2. Thanks for this article. I found the Recent option by clicking on the 3 lines, then scrolling down to See More, then scrolling down to Recent and Favourites. That opened my Newsfeed to show Home Favourite Recent at the top of the feed – and showed posts in the order they were posted , newest first. Great!
