Re: My 2015 Facebook wish is....
I think trying to manage newsfeeds would be an impossible task. It would simply be too difficult, in my estimation. But I get why people want to have that kind of control; they probably feel like they may be missing out on something, even though I believe a lot of newsfeed stuff is just junk.

2015 Facebook wishes
The "Moments" app is something I would never use and neither is Graph Search because I delete all of my posts after awhile and download any photos from my "friends" when I see the post. The text formatting would be nice, but I rarely post so it makes no real difference to me.

However, both wishes 1 & 2 would be exactly what I want too. I have a small network and gave up on the news feed and switched to a list because of both of these issues; missing posts and old, previously seen posts showing at the top because my "Most Recent" choice was reversed. If you have any insiders at Facebook, send them this list with the first two in enlarged bold type!

My 2015 Facebook wish is....
to spend less time on Facebook.  I don't spend much time to begin with, and post little to nothing, but even if I spend 15 minutes a day on there I am ashamed of myself.  Most of that 15 minutes is spent looking at stuff that is of interest to people I'm not really friends with in the first place - is it just me?
