A bit of a facelift for Facebook.

And it's one that will have the site looking and feeling a lot more like Twitter. The online hangout is shifting around its home page so Facebook users can more easily choose the types of information they see.

The site will let users follow public figures like President Barack Obama or swimmer Michael Phelps or their favorite bands or sports teams.

Starting next week, Facebook will also launch a new home page that lets users get continuous updates from their friends, rather than getting them every 10 or 15 minutes.

And for those of us who have those friends who are always sending updates that we aren't all that interested in? Facebook will let you add a filter that will keep those updates at a minimum without "de-friending" them.
