Facebook has introduced a new product that it claims is “a whole new way to keep up with stuff you care about and tidy up your experience on Facebook”.
The new feature, called Interest Lists, is basically a way for you to tidy up your news feed into sections determined by you.
Facebook claims that doing so turns the social network into “your own personalised newspaper, with special sections—or feeds—for topics that matter to you”.
In fact, the company has taken this traditional news feel a step further by including sections like Business, Sports and Style.
You could also get a lot more personalised though and include stuff like “Tech News, Football Players, and Rock Journalists”.
The feature ranks the content from your lists such that only the top stories from each interest appear in your news feed. You can, however, “click through to read more posts,” Facebook claims.
In the next few weeks people will see an “Add Interests” link in their left-hand bookmarks. From there, they can subscribe to a pre-set interest list.
