Facebook undergoes makeover to give users more choice

The popular online hangout Facebook is revamping its home page and plans other changes so its millions of users can more easily choose the types of information they see.

Perhaps taking a cue from Twitter, the rising service for letting people express themselves in 140 characters or less and keep up with what notables have to say, Facebook said Wednesday it will let users follow public figures like U.S. President Barack Obama and swimmer Michael Phelps, bands like U2 and even institutions like the New York Times.  http://www.cbc.ca/technology/story/2009/03/05/facebook-changes.html
