Facebook Homepage is also known as News Feed, can be accessed by clicking “Home or your Name” in the upper-right corner of any Facebook page. You have two main pages of Facebook also known as News Feed and your Timeline. When you click on Home, you’ll be directed to your personal home page.
Your Facebook homepage has links for just about anything you intend to see or do on Facebook. At the center of the page, you have a column for News Feed, which features your friend’s updates.
On the left side of the page, you have clickable navigation links, which directs you to important areas of Facebook which relates to your account. These areas includes the pages you start, groups you have joined, and lists you curate and also your apps and interests.
Set on default, the News Feed at the center of the page displays the updates that your friends have posted, that are getting the most attention with replies. You can click on the down arrow close to the News Feed at the top left of your navigation links, most recent posts, and if you like to see each post from each of your friends, in the order of posting.
From the right side of the page, you can navigate down to watch a live ticker of your friend’s activities on Facebook. From here, you’ll see when they “Like” and/or comment on someone else’s status, photo, or video, as well as when they become friends with someone.
When you hover your mouse pointer on each post, it causes an enlarged version of the activity to open, in order for you to Like or comment, without having to jump to the page. Below this stream, you’ll see some of these important sections.
You can click the tiny calendar, and you will see links to upcoming events in a chronological order, that you have been invited to.
This is represented by a tiny gift box icon, the birthdays link to view which of your friends has a birthday on that day. If you click the link, you can see the names, and be able to post happy birthday wishes, which show up directly on their pages.
