Facebook is introducing a new way to sort your newsfeed with Interest lists. Soon you’ll be able to organize your feed by through user created feeds comprised of content from public brands and pages. For example, if you like football, you could subscribe to a curated list of NFL-related pages. In other news, the Justice Department is allegedly planning to sue Apple and five major publishers for collusion and price-fixing of e-books. Lawmakers believe that the companies are working together to artificially raise the prices of e-books, simultaneously violating antitrust laws. For consumers, it’s likely the case will result in lower prices. And finally, Twitter is planning big changes to the way a brand’s page looks on the social networking site. Customization is currently limited to major advertisers, but Twitter plans to add experiences including e-commerce and contests to brand’s pages.
