If you are interested in making your Timeline a regular updated piece of art work than go ahead.or if you are tired of setting and resetting the Most Recent option than try this options. There are many ways to do this and plenty of add ons, extensions are available but this is the easy and most working thing i found and sharing with you.
Facebook Auto Live Feed is a plugin which automatically switches to "Most recent" instead of "Top news" when you first enter facebook. You can still switch to top news if you choose so but default will always be to switch to most recent.
Don't give facebook the right to determine what's "Top news" to you, that is up to you to decide! This extension makes sure "Most recent" is always the default option in facebook.
