Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg with unidentified co-workers at Facebook headquarters in Palo Alto, California on Tuesday. Facebook has introduced new tools to help users sort friends and copy information from Websites.  

Facebook is introducing tools that will make it easier for people to separate their online friendships into different groups and copy all the personal information they have posted on the Website.

The new features will start rolling out to Facebook’s more than 500 million worldwide users on Wednesday.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg unveiled the changes during a press conference that marked his first public appearance since last Friday’s debut of The Social Network, a movie tracing Facebook’s origins and evolution. The movie depicts Mr. Zuckerberg as an isolated, treacherous genius. Mr. Zuckerberg told reporters he wouldn’t discuss the critically acclaimed film, which has drawn large audiences so far. He has previously scoffed at the movie as a gross exaggeration of his six-year-old company’s history.
