Forgive me if this is already established news, but I discovered a neat little Facebook tweak which I’m pretty certain wasn’t there before.
If you reorganise your “lists” to the left of the stream, the top feed – whatever you decide it should be – will become your homepage default news stream.
I’ve changed mine over to “Friends I’ve Touched” so it’s only filled with people that, yep, I’ve touched.
Hope that’s of some use to you.
Even Friendfeed doesn’t have that option! :)
