Facebook Launches A New Suggested Interests Box

Remember all the controversy surrounding Twitter’s suggested interests box? Whether or not you do, Facebook is now offering a feature which automatically suggests Pages that new users should become a fan of. Right now the suggestions appear to be among the top Facebook Pages so there shouldn’t be as much controversy, given that most pages are mainstream. This contrasts Twitter’s initial strategy which effectively built popular individuals and helped launch a few media companies in a matter of months.

So who’s included on this new suggestions list? Right now we found the following pages:

{"channel":"elasticpress","title":"Recommended","post_types":["post","page"],"lineup_id":"54851","since_qty":30,"since_time":"d","until_qty":0,"until_time":"m","q":"","num_posts":0,"vertical":"performance-marketing"}
