Facebook adds ‘interest lists’, follow what you want
Facebook threw its hat into the ring of curated newsfeeds on Thursday, offering a new “Interest Lists” feature that will allow Facebook users to subscribe to interesting, topical content.
For example, users who want to keep up with the 2012 presidential candidates can subscribe to a list of updates from the candidates themselves, and the political news outlets that follow them, such as MSNBC, CNN, and Fox.
The Interest Lists link will appear in user lists within the next couple of weeks, according to Facebook. The top stories from each interest appear in your newsfeed so you can scan interesting headlines or click through to read more posts, Facebook said.
