    So I was having an issue with my Facebook newsfeed and know I'm not the only one so I figured I'd share my fix with you all.

    So the issue I was having was that the news feed was not showing all of the posts. In fact it was only showing a few news posts every hour or so vice the 10-20+ it should have been showing.

    So I annoyed with this and installed the Android FB app through Snap to check it out. After using the Android app for about 5 mins, I got fed up with trying to figure out how to toggle it from "Top Stores" to "Most Recent", closed it and went back to the BB10 FB app. Sure thing all my news feed is there now. It's been a couple of days now and no issues anymore.

    Hopefully this helps someone else out there.

    Cool, so how does one toggle this? Can you share some shots?

    What do you mean? Between "Top Stories" and "Most recent"?

    LOL... Fair enough. It's actually simple and no screen shots needed.. at least I don't think. Tap the 3 lines in the top left corner, then you will see "News Feed" with the section which slides open. Along side "News Feed" is a gear icon, tap that and then you can toggle.

    Probably does not work permanently. The same trick can be done using the Browser to login to Facebook, but that only works for current posts and not new entries after that.
    Unless you keep it open permanently but that defeats the purpose of even having the app.

    In the beta zone we have all but been assured there is a fix for this in the works.

    Do you still have the Android version installed?
    And is it running in the background? If not this is definitely something I will try. Thanks!

    No, deleted it after I noticed that the BB10 version was working correctly.

    My oh my! It seems you are on to something. Installed Android app, logged in, switched to Most Recent, deleted after.
    And now even after a reboot the native FB app still shows all recent posts (missed only one unimportant one so far).
    Guess that is the first time I have seen an Android app actually fix something native. :s

    After a few days unfortunately this has stopped working for me again. Had to go back to using the browser as a stop-gap measure.
