    Umm. What's a news stream?

    • macushla bubbe says:

      Chaya, in this context, a news stream is the "stream" of news posted by anyone with whom you are Facebook friends. If you have a Facebook account, there are 2 different pages involved– your "wall," which is where anything YOU post on facebook– statuses, longer notes, links to photos or articles that let you "share" them on FB, etc. Plus, your wall can have on it any messages specifically TO you that any of your FB friends posts specifically to your "wall." You can access your wall and so can your facebook friends, if they go specifically your wall by name. Or, you can "customize" your privacy settings to limit access to your wall either to only specific fb friends, or blocking some people from seeing it. Then, there's your "News Feed." It can get confusing, b/c there is overlap in what each page contains. All your own posts will be on your news feed, where you can also read comments on those posts from your facebook friends [you can even block some friends from commenting on your wall, w/o nec. "unfriending" them. In addition, your newsfeed contains posts from your fb friends– THEIR statuses, photos or articles that they've linked to, etc., that they've put on their OWN wall, not yours. Clear as mud, right?

        This may explain why the annoying DOUBLE posts. One on the left side and one on the right side. So annoying.

    My word. It's like I'm looking in a mirror.
