How to See Most Recent Posts on Facebook (2021) (PC, Android and iPhone)

In this post, you’ll see the steps to see the most recent posts on Facebook News Feed and group. Let’s get started.

How to See Most Recent Posts on Facebook News Feed

Facebook shows you posts that are relevant to you on your News Feed by default.

Follow the steps below to see recent posts in the News Feed. In this instance, I’m using a PC, Android or iPhone.

Android or iPhone

Open the Facebook app.

Right now, you should be in the News Feed.

Scroll down and then scroll up.

You can now see the Feed Filter Bar with Home (the default one), Favorites, Recent and an icon.

To see recent posts from the pages and people you follow, tap Recent. The most recent post appears at the top.

That’s all.

Note:

Here’s an alternative method:

When you tap the icon in the Feed Filter Bar, you’ll be given three options: Home, Recent, and Favorites and the option to navigate to the News Feed Preferences. Pick Recent from those three options.

Here’s another alternative method:

Open the Facebook app.

Tap the Menu (three horizontal lines) at the bottom if you’re on an iPhone or the top if you’re on Android.

Hit Recent & Favorites. If you can’t see it, then hit the See More button to see it.

Tap Recent if you’re not in it already. Your News Feed now shows recent posts.

PC

Log in to your Facebook account.

From the left sidebar, select Most Recent. If you don’t see it on the left sidebar, click on See More to see it.

That’s it. Now you can see the latest posts from the pages and people you follow, with the most recent one appearing on top.

How to Sort Facebook Group Posts by Most Recent

Posts with the most recent comments appear at the top by default. Follow these steps to see the posts in chronological order.

Here, I am using a computer, Android, and iPhone.

PC

Visit the Facebook group you want. Here’s how:

You can click on the group name in the Your Shortcuts section on the left sidebar if the former is there.

Or select Groups from the left sidebar. You’ll find the group in the “Groups you manage” section if it’s the one in which you’re the admin or moderator. You’ll see it in the “Groups you’ve joined” section if it’s the group you’re a member of. Click on the group name.

A drop-down list can be found before the first post which is after “Announcements.”

You’ll see two options when you open it:

New Activity – This is the default one. The posts with the most recent comments will be shown first.

Recent Posts – This shows the most recent posts first.

Choose the latter option.

There you have it.

Android or iPhone

Open the Facebook app.

Hit the Menu (three horizontal lines) if you’re on Android or bottom if you’re on iPhone.

Hit Groups. If you can’t see it, then hit the See More button to see it.

Find the group you’re a member of and hit it. In order to get to a group in which you are an admin or moderator, hit Your Groups at the top left and you’ll see the group under Groups you manage. Hit it.

You can see New Activity between Announcements and the first post. You can also see the Sort next to it. Hit it.

You will now see two options:

New Activity – Displays posts with recent comments first, which is the default.

Recent Posts – This shows the most recent posts first.

Choose the latter.

That’s it.
