Viewing the News Feed

The status updates in your Facebook news feed are displayed more or less in reverse chronological order. This means that the most recent updates are at the top and the older ones are at the bottom—with the notable exception that Top Stories appear before Recent Stories. To view even older updates, scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Older Posts button.
