Recently Facebook underwent some design changes, now whenever you login to Facebook you are dropped on the Welcome page. Also if you are already logged in and go to http://www.facebook.com it also drops you on the Welcome page.
But when you click on the link for News Feed the URL registers as http://www.facebook.com. But for those of us who prefer the News Feed when going to the normal Facebook URL this is annoying, and I’ve found no help or settings that allows me to choose the default section that Facebook will initially load.
So after some messing around i found that the URL for the actual Facebook News Feed:
Just click that link once you’re logged in to Facebook, bookmark the page, and you’ll be able to go directly to your News Feed using that bookmark; that is unless Facebook makes changes rendering this method useless.
It works for me, hope that information helps someone else.
