Facebook is changing the way it chooses the posts you see – and doing it in a way that could make it harder to get the news you need from the Star-Telegram. But you can continue receiving updates from the Star-Telegram in your Facebook feed by making this quick change right now:

Are you reading this on your phone or tablet? Click here to go to the Star-Telegram’s Facebook page. Right under the photo at the top, find the word “Follow” or “Following” or “See First.”

Left: Page is “Liked”; click “Following.” Right: Click “See First.”

▪  If you see the word “Following,” click on it and then click “See First.” You’re good to go.

▪  If you see the word “Follow,” click it and then click “See First.” That’s all there is to it.

▪  If you see the words “See First,” you’re way ahead of the game and don’t need to do anything at all.

Are you reading this on a desktop or laptop computer? Click here to go to the Star-Telegram’s Facebook page and look at the upper right part of the page.

▪  If you see see the word “Like,” click on it once to turn it into “Liked,” then click again and choose “See First” and “On (Live Videos.)” If you want to control how you’re notified when the Star-Telegram posts something new, click the small pencil icon next to the word “Notification” and make your choices. That’s it. You’re done.

Click the RSS icon, then click “See First.”

▪  If you see the word “Liked,” roll your cursor over it and then choose “See First” and “On (Live Videos).” If you want to control how you’re notified when the Star-Telegram posts something new, click the RSS icon, then the small pencil icon next to the word “In Your News Feed. ” Or click the small pencil icon next to the word “Notification.” You’re all set.

Thanks very much for reading the Star-Telegram on Facebook.
