Where's the Cat Video Feed? Facebook gave a preview of its redesigned News Feed that will feature larger pictures and allow users to customize the content to show photos, music news, commercial pages or only posts from all their friends.

Also being added is a special Glurge Feed that will allow users to view only inspirational quotes superimposed over pretty pictures of running horses, rainbows and puppies.
