Facebook Friends Lists

Organizing your Facebook friends into Friend Lists can help you manage your time and ensure your message gets delivered to a targeted group of people when posting from your personal profile, when sharing from fan pages to your personal friends, or when inviting people to events. Enjoy these 3 short videos showing you how to do this:

Part 1 – Creating and adding friends to lists on Facebook:


Part 2 – Adjusting who you share from fan pages to using Facebook friend lists, and who can see you as being ‘online’ and available for Facebook Chat:


Part 3 – Using suggestions Facebook makes to add people to your existing friend lists:

What other ways have you found to use Facebook friend lists? I love how it allows me to ensure the messages I want to send publicly on my wall go only to groups I know will be interested. With Facebook cracking down on it’s anti-spam policies, it is important to customize any business messages to go only to lists who would be interested. Let me know your thoughts or suggestions in the comments!
Until next time,

      I’m so glad it helped! I do not yet have the new FB profile (resisting as long as I can) so I hesitated to post until I get it but I decided nah, people need to know this. I set my aunt up on FB last night and realized how NOT obvious it is to others so I had to share!
