What does filter=2 in the querystring mean on Facebook?

I was wondering what filter=2 means when you see it in the query string on a page on Facebook. A quick search on Google didn’t turn anything up either which was annoying as I always feel that you should be able to find an answer to practically any well-worded question on Google!

In the interest of allowing Google to provide an answer to this question I am writing this post:

filter=1 means display only posts by the page
filter=2 means display only posts by others
filter=3 means display highlights (and is also the default if no filter is specified)

Hope that helps someone!
