Creating Lists in Facebook

There’s a great feature in Facebook that allows you to target specific people depending on the type of information you want to share with them. Say you have a few hundred people who you are friends with on Facebook. You have your immediate friends circle, your family and friends, maybe a work circle or specific interest circle.

Say you want to share information with your work circle, using Facebook, about an upcoming project without having that information go to your whole list of FB friends. Building a list for this specific group would be used here.

If list building is something that would be helpful to you here are the steps to begin building.

To create a new list:
  1. Scroll down to Friends on the left side of your News Feed. Hover over Friends and click More (to the right).
  2. Click + Create List.
  3. Enter a name for your list. At this point you can start adding names into the box or you can hit Create and it will take you into the next screen where you can  click on the “Add Friends to List” box and you can populate your friends into this list from there. In the column directly to the right you can see how many people you’ve added to the list and click on the drop down to check the names.   (You can add or remove friends from your lists at any time.)
