Yesterday, Google released a redesigned version of its Google News homepage, aimed to make the news you see more relevant. Additionally, the redesign hopes to highlight "interesting stories you didn’t know existed," and make sharing these relevant and interesting stories much easier.
The heart of the homepage is called "News For You," and consists of a feed of headlines automatically tailored to your interests. You can edit this feed by specifying to what degree you're interested in stories in any of Google's topline categories (like Business or Entertainment) and also add subjects of your own (so, yes, "Lady Gaga" is an acceptable category of news which I fully support). Additionally, you have the ability to customize the page's layout, choose which news sources you'd like to appear more often than others, or opt out of personalization altogether.
