Geek Tip: Customize Your Facebook Home Screen

When Facebook recently launched its new home screen featuring an improved "News Feed" and "Live Feed" option, I found myself preferring the Live Feed option nearly every time. Yet most times I logged into my account, "News Feed" showed as the home screen. Not anymore! I learned about this tip from a friend via her Facebook status: when you're logged in, you're able to drag the links on the left side of the page to rearrange them. So, if you prefer to view only Status Updates from friends when you log into Facebook, drag the "Status Updates" tab to the top of the list.

You can move any of the links to the top. I set my "Best Friends" group as the first item that way every time I sign into Facebook I see only updates and posts from that group of friends. It's a great way to quickly see what my favorite people are up to without all of the updates that can otherwise clutter the screen.

I like looking at my best friends' updates on Facebook, but sometimes I think its better not to classify my Facebook friends. This way, I get to pay attention to my not-so-best friends also. ^_^
