If you are one of the many people who were surprised to see a new homepage on Facebook, here is a quick tip that will allow you to switch back to the old Facebook Feed.
Step 1: Click on the more link in the sidebar in Facebook Home.
Step 2: Drag the Status Updates menu item and add it to the top of the sidebar.
Step 3: Refreshing the page will now display the live feed to you instead of the news feed by default. Enjoy.
You can also make use of Facebook Lite (http://lite.facebook.com) to view status updates instead of news feeds as default.
