Another enhanced feature of the re-designed Web site -- which is used by 500 million browsers in 70 languages worldwide -- is the See Friendship option, which sorts out all of the pictures, groups and messages two users have in common. Users can also sort out the people they talk to the most, such as family and close friends, with the Featured Friends option.

Zuckerberg -- who was portrayed by actor Jesse Eisenberg in this fall's hit flick, The Social Network -- said other features such as hometown, jobs, birthdays and relationships will be featured more prominently atop each profile page.
