Make your Facebook news feed default to Most Recent

Oh, Facebook. I'm always setting your news feed to Most Recent, and every few days you decide I'd be happier with Top Stories.

Oh, Facebook. I'm always setting your news feed to Most Recent, and every few days you decide I'd be happier with Top Stories.

(What exactly qualifies as a "top story," anyway? Never been real clear on that.)

As hassles go, it's a minor one -- but still pretty annoying. Thankfully, there's an easy way to strong-arm Facebook into showing the Most Recent feed each and every time you visit the site.

All you do is change your Facebook bookmark to the following:

That extra bit of code tacked onto the end tells Facebook to sort stories chronologically -- in other words, to always display the Most Recent feed. If you want Top Stories, you can still click Sort and choose that option.
