Why can’t I see all my friend’s Facebook posts when I go to their Timeline?

For some reason, not all of my friend’s posts are showing up in my news feed. To confirm, I looked at their Timeline to see if it’s just my settings, but I still can’t see everything.

I looked at his Timeline from another account (who is friends with him) and I see that there are lots of posts on his Timeline that the privacy settings are “friends of friends.” How is it that I can’t see these things? Clearly we are Facebook friends. He insists that it must be my settings and not a problem on his end, but I don’t see how that is possible.

The question is: Can you set your privacy settings to “friends of friends” and still exclude individuals? Because if you were to exclude individuals, your settings would then be “custom.”

    The home screen defaults to showing only popular posts or what it THINKS you want to see. Find the little SORT link on the top right of the status list, click it and select MOST RECENT instead of TOP STORIES. Done.
