Facebook Adds "Recently Updated" Filter Back to Friends Page

Last week, Facebook reoptimized the Friends page for contact list importing and friend list creation – two features vital to Facebook’s future growth and usability. However, at the same time, users complained that the functionality of the old Friends page, which let users see friends’ recent profile updates and status updates, was needlessly removed altogether. Today, Facebook has added a “Recently Updated” filter back to the Friends page and added a “Status Updates” filter back to the home page stream.
