Facebook recently changed its layout, no longer allowing you to choose between “top stories” and “most recent” stories. Due to user outcry, however, they announced that they’ll be changing it back, though you might not notice it at first. Here’s how it works.

The news feed is keeping its divided news feed, with one category of stories on top and another on the bottom, though with this new update, you can choose which stores show up at the top of your feed. If you want to see more recent stores rather than what Facebook considers “top” stories, just hit the teeny tiny “Sort” button in the upper right-hand corner of your news feed and choose “Recent Stories First”.

The changes are rolling out gradually, as they always do, so if you don’t see the new button yet, keep an eye on Facebook every few days.
