Facebook Knows What’s Important to YOU

In Facebook on September 21, 2011 at 7:11 am

Facebook has come along to help us decide what’s important to us, or at least in our NewsFeed.  The top social networking site now has a Top Story feature. Here’s how the Facebook blog describes it:

When you pick up a newspaper after not reading it for a week, the front page quickly clues you into the most interesting stories. In the past, News Feed hasn’t worked like that. Updates slide down in chronological order so it’s tough to zero in on what matters most.

Now, News Feed will act more like your own personal newspaper. You won’t have to worry about missing important stuff. All your news will be in a single stream with the most interesting stories featured at the top. If you haven’t visited Facebook for a while, the first things you’ll see are top photos and statuses posted while you’ve been away. They’re marked with an easy-to-spot blue corner.

Here’s a picture of the visual cue that will help you not think about what is important to yourself because hey we’re just too busy to bother with that kind of stuff.
