Facebook: getting posts from a group into my news feed

I belong to a Facebook group but messages being posted to it are not appearing on my news feed. What needs to be tweaked to enable this? I feel stupid even asking this question but there's something about the way FB works that is just not intuitive for me. The Help Center Faqs on Facebook aren't that helpful. [more inside]

Is it wrong to follow/friend a job applicant?

I'm hiring, and in addition to interviewing, checking references (official and un-), etc., I'd like to see how candidates are using Twitter, Facebook, and/or Tumblr. Facility with this stuff isn't a primary requirement of the job, but it's helpful; I also think it's a good way to gauge a candidate's judgement and to see how they manage their public face. On the other hand, it feels like following or friending is weird, or possibly an invasion of privacy. Is it?

Where can i see list of non-fb pages i've 'liked'?

I've been clicking the 'like' button all over the interwebs -on pages and articles and slideshows and whatnot. Now i want to view a list of all things i've "liked", so that i can revisit them. (To a certain extent, i've been liking things as a way of bookmarking them.) Problem: on facebook, i can see a list of the pages within facebook that i've liked, and i can see recent non-fb-pages that i've liked in my profile's recent activity. So: where can a see a list of all the non-fb pages i've liked? [more inside]

Dear Facebook Pop-up: Never darken my doorstep again.

Occasionally when opening pages that have the Facebook "Like" sidebar box thing (usually Wired or ThereIFixedIt), I get a pop-up that looks like the sidebar (like this--pictures and names blurred to protect random strangers). The address for this pop-up is usually in the form http://www.connect.facebook.com/widgets/fan.php?api_key=... I'm using Firefox with about a million extensions, none of which specifically apply to Facebook, Wired, etc. I have pop-ups disabled and neither Facebook nor any of the sites I'm getting the pop-up from have any exceptions in my pop-up preferences. I want to never see that pop-up again, what do I need to do to make this happen?
