Facebook users prefer profiles over newfangled(ish) newsfeed

However, the results pose an interesting paradox for Facebook, as it seems the things we’re most interested in are buried a level deep in searches or menus. Furthermore, the newsfeed, a flagship feature that’s intended to combine Twitterlike aggregation and extensive content controls, is the one we care far less about than in-depth knowledge about our friends. It seems we’d rather use Facebook for its more unique feature—interactions and profiles that tell us where our friends work and what movies they like.
