If you click on TOP STORIES in your newsfeed, you see all the DRAMA LOL. I always had mine set to Most recent and I been missing out on so much drama. WOW

Had no idea that you see so much more that way.

I hate how it keeps reverting or defaulting back to "top stories" when I want it on "most recent." I don't know anyone who really prefers to Top Stories to Most Recent, but facebook wants that to be your default.

So even if you picked Most Recent now, keep checking all the time--you'll find it keeps going back to Most Recent. This happens on my computer and on my phone.

I'm with you. I don't want FB deciding what it thinks I want to or should read. I just want it all in chronological order, and I'll decide what to read and what not to read.

Same here. However I have known for a long time that making sure that "most recent" is checked will suite me better for keeping up with what my friends are up to. That feature has been there for a couple of years. I also know to make sure that my statuses and posts are set to friends only and that my security settings are up to date regularly....

When I check Facebook from my smartphone, it always shows the "top stories" and I can't find a way to change it. But when I check Facebook from a computer, I make sure to have the "recent stories" settings always checked off.
