Creating Lists on Facebook

There are two great reasons to create lists on Facebook.  First, lists allow you to monitor a particular group of friends in your news feed. For an example, let’s take a group I call “Client.”  When I click on the Client list in the left column of my Facebook homepage, only updates from my Client list will display in my newsfeed. It’s a great way to keep track of the people who matter!

The second reason that lists are great is because by creating lists, you can target your updates to a specific list rather than all your Facebook friends.

Follow these instructions to create a Facebook list:

  • Click the Home link on your Facebook page in the header in the upper right corner.
  • Click the More link next to friends in the left column.
  • Click Create a List.

Now you can search for your friends in the search bar at the top of the page, or you can add people from the List Suggestions that Facebook provides.
