Add Interests for Facebook newcomers

When you sign up with Facebook today, you'll go through a step called Add Interests where you can choose suggested Pages. This option is being rolled out by Facebook to make it easier for you to connect with interests and people you care about so you can receive updates or content from them.

"To help out newcomers, we're launching a new way for them to find interesting Pages. Starting today, when new people join the site, they will see a list of Pages that other people in a similar demographic to them also commonly like," Facebook software engineer Ziqing Mao posted on the official blog.

As Mao pointed out, Facebook makes sure that these Pages are the ones posting 'engaging updates' making them valuable to newcomers. The list of suggested pages is strictly determined by an algorithm so you can trust that these are not paid or sponsored.
