When I visit Facebook, the initial page is always Top News. Is there a way to make it display Most Recent as the default sort filter instead?

Even better if I can have it default to a specific filter in Most Recent.

That's not possible at the moment, but you can bookmark this URL which will always take you to Most Recent:


Another bet would be to use a browser add-on that can achieve this:

Better Facebook is a FREE browser extension that improves Facebook by adding lots of great enhancements and functionality!

Facebook "Most recent" by default is a plugin which automatically switches to "Most recent" instead of "Top news" when you first enter Facebook.
