comment Having lots of checkboxes and an extra action for each checkbox
I don't think you should double up the functionality. i.e. clicking on the star should not also turn on the checkbox. In fact the stars should probably be greyed out until the checkboxes are selected. This makes each action extremely clear to the user and avoids the "accidentally clicking" scenario.

+1 This seems like a decent solution. I think you should be wary of adding any more than one or two forms of interactivity (delete box and star) for each element might affect the intuitiveness of the display.

comment Is it necessary to tell users that Usability was improved?
No - I don't think I would tell them. What is there to gain by telling them ? If they really are improvements then they will shine through (:

@BenBrocka In fact the newsfeed is still in the old style textual list and this is where people spend most of there time. The Profile page Timeline seems more about curating and visualness?

I don't buy the whole life graph thing... or rather I think the "visual" point is more important. Interesting though... look forward to seeing what else you find. +1 for this lot - a good start.
