Looks like Facebook decided to borrow an idea from Twitter and Pinterest as it introduced its idea of “Interest Lists” today, that you create by incorporating posts from pages and public figures under a designated label. Once you’ve created your ‘Interest Lists’ you have the ability to allow other Facebooker’s to subscribe to them or keep them private.
Facebook Software Engineer Eric Faller said:
Essentially the interest lists can help you turn Facebook into your own personalized newspaper based on categories and topics that you list.
Will you Create or Subscribe to an Interest List?
Facebook will be rolling out with the Interest List in the coming week but if you want to start playing with this feature visit the Interest List link and create your own or subscribe to some great lists!
Facebook announced the “Timeline” design in September and for those who were eager and antsy who wanted first dibs at it, signed up for the developer test run. The Facebook network of 800 million members will have the opportunity to convert their profiles today. The official roll out will go live December 22nd, but you have the option to ‘publish now’ or make that timeline your very own today. Have fun with the new design!
Get yours NOW!
I know there is bound to be an uproar about this whole ‘Facebook Timeline’ but quite frankly I love it… so many unique features and ‘featured’ areas to share with friends and family. And activity amongst your friends just got that much easier to filter out.
Facebook Timeline is what you’d call a recap of everything that has EVER happened in your Facebook lifespan. It’s pretty much your personal story book of your life that you’ve helped pretty much document online over the course of your relationship with Facebook.
Well if you’re antsy, there’s steps below on how to get the new Facebook Timeline profile, otherwise just wait it out, everyone will have it come September 29th.
You too can get the new profile before it’s official release … and it takes just about 5minutes
Get New Facebook Time Profile
Late last night, Facebook made a subtle change to the navigation bar at the top, it is now locked in place. What does this mean? You know have a view of notifications at all times. Sure you get the little pop up bubble on the bottom left hand corner but now you will see the friend requests, messages, and notifications at all times in the navigation bar.
Look familiar? You guessed it! Both Twitter and Google+ have implemented this subtle improvement to their sites as well over the course of the last month. For anyone who’s ever tried to catch up on News Feed updates and found themselves pages below the navigation bar when they received a notification, this is a welcome change. No more losing your place to find out you only got invited to an event you really don’t want to attend anyway.
