NEW YORK – Facebook is revamping users' profiles to emphasize the pages for bands, books and businesses that millions have become fans of on the world's largest online social network.
Currently, users can list their activities, interests, favorite music and TV shows as part of their profile. But links to Facebook "pages" for products, bands and other interests would appear in a separate section lower down.
Beginning Monday, Facebook will start prompting users to essentially combine the two. So if you have listed Johnny Cash in the "favorite music" section of your profile, Facebook will now ask to join his page, if you haven't become a fan of it already. You'll be able to hide this on your profile, though you'll still be listed on the Johnny Cash page.
