    I have a conundrum.

    If I post an item on facebook on my home page, I find it appears for a short period then disapears.

    It is not that other people have posted items etc., because if I trawl down way into posts by others of a few days or so my original is not there.

    I did find it again in my timeline, but why does it not show in my home page anymore.

    If people on here think I have no idea, they are correct I am 75 years old living on my own mostly so not very computer savvi.

    Could someone please advise me.

    Facebook news feed is basically what your friends post for you to see and not really what you post. Anything you post will show up on your own profile page, just the way its designed. But then again Facebook is terrible about showing all posts made anyway.

    And it depends on what you post, if you post something that Facebook thinks is offensive, then they will delete it also. What kills me is if I re-post someone's post that is offensive, I get spank for it but not them.

    It doesn't post anywhere close to everything. It's a careful algorithim based on a variety of things like who you interact with (messaging too), content you interact with, and paid placement from ads. I notice if I start talking to a certain person via Messenger more then their activity shows up in my feed more frequently.

    Timeline is where you're going to find what you have posted, the main feed you see is going to change literally every time you look at it as is its design.
