I'm not a big Facebook user. As I write this, I have 47 friends on Facebook. I'm willing to bet you have at least three times as many.
Although I don't update my Facebook status or post pictures there, I do pop in once a day to view my news feed. Every single time I visit, the news feed is sorted by "Top News". Every single time I visit, I change this to "Most Recent".
C'mon Facebook, remember our preferences!
