Facebook now has a per-friend "How many updates?" settings that controls the number of updates that appear in the news feed from that friend. I want to see all updates from all of my friends. Is there any way to change this setting globally or do I have to go through each and every one of my friends to change it?

No, there is no way to do it in bulk.

"How many updates?" are preset based on your categories for friends and lists.

  • Close Friends - All Updates
  • Acquaintances - Only Important
  • Friends - Most Updates
  • Restricted - Most Updates
  • Subscribed - Most Updates
