How to Add to Your Timeline Interest Sections on Facebook

By Carolyn Abram

Interest sections are a part of the Facebook Timeline that can be a really fun way to let your friends know the music, movies, television shows, books, and other things that really define you. Most of you have at least one book that’s your favorite, and maybe another that you’re reading right now and would really like to talk about with someone.

You can share both books you have read and your favorite books with your Facebook Friends following these steps:

  1. Navigate to the expanded Books section of your Timeline by clicking the More link beneath your cover photo and selecting Books from the drop-down menu.

    The same applies to the other Interest sections.

    This takes you to the expanded Books section of your Timeline. There are three subcategories of books that you can add to: Read, Want to Read, and Likes.


  2. Click into the section you want to be adding books to.

    By default, you will be in the Read section.

  3. Type the name of the book you want to add into the Search box.

    Facebook will attempt to autocomplete as you type. When you see the book you want to add, click it or press Enter. You may also be able to click from a selection of suggested books that Facebook displays.

  4. Repeat Step 3 until you add every book you’ve read ever.

  5. Click the Want to Read or Likes section to add books that are on your list or that you want to actively recommend to people.

    Adding books in those sections is exactly the same: Search for the ones you want to add and then click them to select them.
