Mashable reported last week on a new Facebook feature: interest lists. You can now create lists that are similar to the ones you can make on Twitter or within your Google Reader, grouping together feeds by subject matter so you can move in and out of conversations.
The feature, which will be rolled out to users in the coming weeks, lets you create and subscribe to topical feeds such as “Recipes” or “Fashion.” Under a list for “Sports,” for instance, you could add the public Facebook pages of all of your favorite teams, athletes, publications and pundits.
As someone who doesn't like her food touching on her plate, I can definitely see the beauty in Facebook lists. Let's say I follow a bunch of people who all have status updates about deals on the Internet; I can group them together and check in a few times a day to make sure I don't miss anything rather than having them travel through my larger general feed.
There are also public lists that have been created that people can subscribe to such as the ones via the Washington Post which range from politics to restaurants.
What do you think of the new Facebook interest lists? Are you going to utilize them?
