Has anyone else noticed that the people hub is now showing friends posts from Facebook that were not visible before? Not sure if Facebook has made some changes or what, but I'm back to seeing everyone's comments again. Can anyone confirm this on their phone or does anyone have any info?
I'm on HTC Trophy running build 7720.68 on Verizon.No unlock or custom rom on this phone currently.

Either that, or FB have made a privacy setting change which has affected the People Hub. I would hope, though, that it is a permanent solution as, when you think about it, it was stupid not to give the People Hub official access to feeds given that it's written by MS as part of the OS, and MS also wrote the "Official" FB app on WP7.

One thing I've just noticed - it doesn't look like I'm getting "Me" live tile notifications on comments from the people who previously weren't appearing in the People Hub. If I go into "Me" and check notifications the updates appear there. It just seems that they're not shown on the live tile.
Not a major thing though.

Yeah, this fix was long overdue. Let's hope that it's a permanent thing and not some fluke with Facebook's security settings.
Glad to see that others are noticing this as well. I had a problem for about a week with the Me tile not showing notifications and couldn't, for the life of me, figure out what was causing it. Went as far as to hard reset the phone to try and fix it, but didn't help. Started working again and with the notifications came the ability to see everyone again. So, hopefully, it was all due to Facebook making some planned changes.

If this is a permanent fix, and not just a fluke, then they've done it just in time IMO. I was seeing more and more of my friends' updates disappearing from the People Hub as folks are generally becoming more aware of privacy settings (especially after the Google change of terms and conditions). So more of my friends were choosing to block all third party apps.
Hopefully, this is for the long term. But I agree with others here, this should be a sticky.

well thats great if it is. Finally the people hub does what its meant to. I havent bothered with it for ages, but just checked and yes, the friends that didnt show up before are now there. Fingers x'd that this is permanent and people hub is now an official app. yay.

I was thinking of a way to encourage people to allow access, but that would include explaining to them what Facebook itself wants their data for...

WOW! This is really FANTASTIC news! How come this is not officially announced? How about a post on WPCentral or something? I'll check this when I get home tonight and if it works, the FB app won't be on my Start screen anymore (I'll leave the app installed just in case, though).
