It sounds like Facebook engineers are working increasing the amount of information you see on your main page.
The data feed in which you now see select filtered info about your friends updates and actions, could substantially increase.
They are talking about displaying data such as updates from pages you follow, companies, users games, and activities.
The goal seems to be to expand the reach for advertises
“In the coming weeks, as we learn more from this test, we’ll keep making improvements and may expand it to more people,” said a spokesman for Facebook.
Mty thoughts are that Facebook was largely successful due to it’s streamlined, clean and clutter free approach. Infact this is what lead to the demise of Myspace. Too much junk, clutter caused people to go elsewhere. Be careful Facebook, be very careful. I truly believe the datafeed needs to be improved there are certain things I would like to see and know which are not currently available. Maybe one idea would be to allow users to completely customize their datafeeds, and even opt out of advertising feeds.
