Wanted: history widget for Facebook's news feed
Why is there no way to see more than a single page of my Facebook news feed?
When I'm too busy to visit the news page, or am traveling, or just want to go back a week to check out what my friends were up to, there's no way to do it.
To me, the news feed is the most important (and valuable) part of Facebook. It is unique. As unique as Google's PageRank. As unique as Amazon's recommendation engine.
I was reading an article about NFO (News Feed Optimization) on the Inside Facebook blog
(great post, btw) when I decided it was finally time to write about it.
If I were Facebook, I'd have an entire team dedicated to thinking up ways to improve the news feed . And then I'd double the size of the team.
The good news is that thanks to Facebook's widget platform
, we don't need Facebook to do it. So, if you think a history widget for the Facebook news feed is a good idea and would like to develop it, let me know.
