    For example on my news feed there is something from yesterday morning with no likes near the top, but something with likes from today is below it.

    How does that work??

    They are forcing top stories to be shown at the moment. You can manually select "most recent" in your feed preferences but it will not save your choice so it must be changed every time you wish to view most recent.

    Its really annoying!!!

    It comes down to money. The users of facebook aren't paying customers, we are the product which facebook sells to advertisers

    It's probably a crappy version of the reddit algorithm, combined with whoever pays facebook the most.

    Google how the reddit algorithm works. c:

    It depends on how you use Facebook. Depending on who's posts you look at the most and interact with, they'll appear on your feed more. That's the assumption I'm under anyway.
