Dear PC Doctor:

I maintain a Facebook page for an organization.  It’s public, and the whole idea is that we want people to see what events we’re hosting and to know that they are invited.  Recently, Facebook started putting all our videos and photographs at the top of the page.  This pushes our current events way down.  I don’t think people will scroll down to see them.  I am trying to find a way to move those photos and videos off the top of the page – They’re nice, but they aren’t current.  I don’t want to delete them, because they are part of our organization’s history.  Do you have any advice? 

Thank you,



Dear Tip:

At the top of your Facebook page, just under the blue stripe, see if you have a menu choice, “Settings.”  Click that.  Now, on the left, in grey writing on a white background, you should see “Edit Page.”  Choose that.  A central box should open up, showing you tools and choices you have for configuring your Facebook page.  Choose the elements you like and click “Page” up on the top left to see if you like the way it looks.  When you’re satisfied, just go on posting as usual.  Facebook should automatically save your new settings. 

A second approach you can try would be to “pin” new posts to the top of your timeline.  To do that, write your post as usual.  Then, on the top right you will see a little triangle pointing down.  Click that and choose “Pin to Top of Page.”  This will keep your current post at the very top of the screen.  When you are ready to create a new post, unpin the old one and pin the new one to the top.

I hope this helps.
Until next time,
