The rising and soaring popularity of the newest social media darling Pinterest must have caught the attention of social media giant Facebook.

In an obvious move to maintain the interest of its users to their social platform, Facebook added a new feature called "Interest Lists", according to report.

Facebook's interest lists allow its users to customize their subscriptions according to topics they fancy like music, games, food, art, and more. These lists can help them turn their Facebook accounts into their personalized newspaper of sorts, featuring feeds for topics they liked.

The new "add interests" button appears on the left sidebar. If you have the button, the link leads you to thousands of user- generated lists on various topics from which you can subscribe. These lists can include brand and people pages.

If users don't like what they see on the interests lists provided, they can create their own list topic and take it from there. It is important to note that feeds from Interest Lists appear separately and you cannot see it on your main News Feed.

Now if this new Facebook feature adds additional productivity and interactivity to Facebook users still remains to be seen.
