Announcement of a new Facebook feature that enables users to subscribe to personal interests or "likes," officially called "Connections," let you connect to your favorite celebrities, musicians and businesses on Facebook. “Community Pages are a new type of Facebook Page dedicated to a topic or experience that is owned collectively by the community connected to it. Just like official Pages for businesses, organizations and public figures, Community Pages let you connect with others who share similar interests and experiences.” And “with More Connected Profiles, certain parts of your profile, including your current city, hometown, education and work, and likes and interests, will contain "connections." "Within your Privacy Settings under the Account menu, you have a section called 'Friends, Tags and Connections.' Adjusting the drop-down menus beside each field let you determine who can see those parts of your profile," reads a post on Facebook's blog this morning from software engineer Alex Li. "These visibility settings are a direct response to your requests to be able to hide more information on your profile. Specifically, the most requested feature a few weeks ago was to enable you to hide your friend list on your profile from your friends. As part of today's changes, you can do that."”
