PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – If you didn’t get your Facebook fix yet today, you’re potentially in for a rude awakening.

The social networking website made some big changes.

The first thing you’ll notice is a new home page.

Facebook calls it your “top stories.” If you use it regularly, they say you won’t see much change. If you’re a casual user, “top stories” are based upon whom you’re connected with most, and how many “likes” and comments they receive.

On the right side of the page is a new real-time ticker.

Like it or not, you’ll know whom gets friended by whom, where your friends are checking in and who likes that picture your friend took over the weekend.

On the left side of the page, new “lists” popped up over the weekend.

You can classify friends, co-workers, relatives and customize who is actually able to see each post you put up. Don’t want your co-workers knowing you called in sick? Done.

Finally, you’ll see a new “subscribe” button.

This is where you can follow public posts by people you’re not actually friends with.

There are a lot of people out there vowing to give up on Facebook, but some of these changes are already found in Google Plus.

Perhaps not coincidentally, that site is now live for anyone with a Google account starting on Wednesday.
