We’re always happy when users respond to Whidbey News-Times stories and photos they see on Facebook. It’s a good way for us to connect with you — so let’s protect it.

Facebook has changed your news feed, giving preference to posts from friends and family. This means you could see fewer stories from news sources.

If you are like the majority of Americans who regularly get some of their news from social media, you probably want to keep seeing reliable information from the News-Times and other trustworthy journalism sites on Facebook. There is a simple way to make this happen.

From your desktop computer

1. Open a desktop web browser and go to the Whidbey News-Times’ Facebook page.

2. At the top, next to the “Like” button, find the word “Follow” or “Following.” (If it says “Follow,” click that once before continuing; it will change to “Following.”)

3. Click the word “Following” and choose “See First.”

From the Facebook mobile app

1. Open the app and tap the menu icon with the three horizontal lines. (On some devices, it’s at upper right; on others, it’s at lower right.)

2. Scroll to Settings and tap “News Feed Preferences.”

3. On the screen that pops up, tap “Prioritize who to see first.”

4. The pages you like and people you’re friends with will appear. Find the Whidbey News-Times in the list and tap the logo. When you’re finished, tap “Done” in the upper right corner.
