Prevent Facebook from "grouping" news feed items by subjects/keywords
Facebook defaults to "grouping" news feed items based (I assume) on keywords common to them (such as 'Thanksgiving' or 'Christmas'). It would be great if Social Fixer had an option to undo Facebook's clustering of posts in that way, and restore them to their normal place in the chronological order.
Could we have an option to turn off the automatic grouping that occurs when multiple people post about the same topic?
Facebook automatically groups inappropriately all the time. SFX controls mean that grouping posts to control the news feed is totally unnecessary. It would be much better to have the posts unbundled most of the time.
This is something that has been attempted in the past with limited success. It is always we are looking for, but there doesn’t seem to be a way of doing it without causing many more issue.
Keeping as “under review” as you never know what the future holds.

If it's not possible to do this with all posts, if it could at least be done for the status messages that get grouped together by person, that would be awesome. It's far too easy to hide those by accident, not realizing that it's a group until you've clicked to hide them.

I want to see all postings in chronological order please and not grouped into certain friends and family.

Yes please - desperately need this, as facebook's grouping is HORRIBLE - and I can't mark individual posts in the group as read. :(

Matt had this feature in an earlier beta, but it got removed because it is too buggy.
I sooooooo want this feature! In fact, I found this voting page by looking on BFB/SFX for a way to ungroup.

Apparently this is post type=364 (undefined)
Looking at the html, I think you could break up the grouping into the individual posts. This would need to happen before the user's filters get a chance to move them to tabs or do whatever the filter is set to do on the individual posts.
