Facebook's News Feed can be a mishmash to deal with, as cumbersome as federal bureaucracy and not nearly as fun.
The social network wants to make it easier for users to see stories that they may have missed previously in their day by now using "story bumping" to put those stories high up in each user's News Feed.
"The goal of News Feed is to deliver the right content to the right people at the right time so they don't miss the stories that are important to them," Facebook's Lars Backstrom wrote, in a statement about the changes Tuesday.

"Ideally, we want News Feed to show all the posts people want to see in the order they want to read them. This is no small technical feat: every time someone visits News Feed there are on average 1,500 potential stories from friends, people they follow and Pages for them to see, and most people don't have enough time to see them all."
