Facebook Interests List: A new feature that is being introduced by Facebook sometime back & trust me I am in love with this feature. I have been using this feature from around two weeks now, and I recommend this to every Facebook user out there.
Facebook Interests List is all about creating your own news feed – Customized by you personally. It can include images, videos, posts, status updates & all other stories from the people and page that you have added to your interests list. Isn’t it cool?
No more crappy posts, no more clicking on pages to pages to find new content, no more wasting hours to stay updated with the brands you want to. In short, creating your own one stop shop to stay updated about all the brands.
