I set my home screen up for one touch icons for important people so I dont have to go through the phone book.
I am sure this one will be used to here you go
Long press on a blank area of the home screen and tap "add to home screen" on the menu that comes up. Then click on "apps." Then tap on "Widgets" at the top of the screen. Scroll through the pages of widgets until you find the contact/direct dial/direct message widgets, long press on them and drag and drop it on your home screen
You can use this to load your facebook feed as well
