How and why to make a list of friends on Facebook

For a better Facebook Experience – Make Friends’ Lists

Recently I realized that I was losing track of what my closest friends on Facebook are up to and that it was time to make a list of just the friends I’m closest to so I don’t miss them in the information overload which is the news feed. One could create a list of friends, fellow activists or people who post interesting things. Here’s how I did it step by step.

10.7.17 – the Steps have changed since I first wrote this in 2010.  See the following image and follow along:

  1. Under Explore on the Left Side – Click on Friends Lists
  2. Click on Create List
  3. Give Your List a Name and Pick a Member or Two
  4. Adjust at will – I’ll put the various images below in a little box for your you should see these in a clockwise order starting from the top left.

 

Enjoy your new view of your friends. You’ll probably learn quickly that this new list doesn’t change as quickly as all of the information on the news feed, but the information seems rich in a way that the news feed’s doesn’t. IMHO.
