Today Valve will roll out the beta to the Community update for Steam
. Today is also the final day to see the last bit of information about the update and its about friends. In the new update Valve have broken out your Friends from the larger Community and each now have their own areas in Steam.
Community is now about the entire Steam Community and it’s where Game Hubs, Steam Workshop, and Steam Greenlight will live. Friends is now simply all about you and your friends. You can also make status updates your friends can see as well as the ability to give friends nicknames so you can keep track of who they are even if they change their profile name. The beta is open early to the first 50,000 players who earned the 'Pillar of the Steam Community' badge and includes another invite to share. Beta access will increase incrementally until the public launch.
