Why are my Facebook close friends notifications wrong?

Lorene Collinge January 23, 2013

I have 1 close friend. The numbers I see next to the icon are not matching the number of posts they have. And I am no longer getting notifications when they do post, although I have not changed the settings.

Anyone.. can you offer a reason for this?

    Sometimes facebook's numbers are inaccurate, but it ends up fixing itself after some time. The posts are still there, no worries.

    This has been an issue with me for quite some time. Thanks for asking it here! I think this is a bug for quite a lot of people who use lists such as "Close Friends".

    facebook always makes experiments..not all of them are successful

    try removing this friend and adding it again and make sure that there is no one in that list you don't know about
