Difference between Top stories and Recent stories on facebook

Facebook have added the new feature to news feeds and you are now familiar that the news feed is divided into two parts, Top Stories and Recent Stories. You might be wondering what the difference is and if there is any difference at all. Well the stories that you see in the top stories, which happens to be the first and top most part of your news feed, are all the stories and updates that Facebook has marked as important. Basically these are posts and updates that have received quiet a lot of traction and will usually be accompanied by a lot of likes and comments. Recent stories are that ones that are being shown as they happen and yes, they are in chronological order. There are top stories among these too. Basically top stories are marked by the light blue share on the left-hand top corner of each post. You can also mark a story as important, to mark a story as important you would need to click on the light blue shade on the top left-hand corner to mark as important. An example can be seen in the image above.
