As Facebook rolls out changes that will affect which posts you'll be shown in your News Feed, there is a way to make sure you'll keep seeing news from the Tampa Bay Times. Here's how you can easily adjust your Facebook settings right now to make that happen.

If you're seeing this on a desktop or laptop computer:

First, click here to go to the Times' Facebook page. Near the upper right corner, move your cursor over the "liked" button (if you haven't already liked the Times' Facebook page, click "like" first). You'll then see a menu with the option "see first." Click on "see first," and you'll begin seeing Times posts prioritized at the top of your News Feed.

You may also want to do this for our other Facebook feeds: tbt*, Sports, Arts & Entertainment, Food and Health.

If you'd also like Facebook to notify you when the Times posts something new, go back to "liked," click on the pencil icon near "notifications" and check the box next to "all posts." Now you'll be notified when the Times posts a tampabay.com story, photo or video.

If you're reading this on a phone or tablet:

First, tap here to go to the Times' Facebook page.

Look below the words "sign up." If you see the word "like," tap on that first to like the page. If your screen already says "liked," then look for a button that says "follow" or "following" or "see first."

If your screen already says "see first," you can stop there, you're done. If your screen says "follow" or "following," tap there, and then tap "see first." Now you'll see Times posts prioritized at the top of your News Feed.
