Sort Your Facebook Friends Who Are Interactive

In this video I show you something I’ve started doing to help get my personal Facebook friends sorted. I don’t know about you but I have lots of Facebook friends, some of whom I am not sure I even know and certainly who do not interact with me. Once in a while I will go through a phase where I begin to unfriend people or add them to a restricted list but I’ve also found this to be useful.

It seems that most of the time it is the same “core group” of friends who are interactive and like or comment on my posts, but for some reason Facebook doesn’t show them all in my News Feed, so I do not have a chance to reciprocate. By doing the following, I can more easily find them, and am much less likely to delete them from my Friends!

1. When you have a post that receives likes/comments, click on the number of likes to see the full list, or simply hover over each person’s name.

2. On the Friends button you see in the pop up or hover card that appears, hover over it and then go down to Add to another list.

3. The first time you do this you will need to Create New List but after that simply add them to the list you created the first time. I called my Interacts with me. 🙂 You might call it “Social” or “Active” or “Inner circle” or something like that. No one will see the name you give the list.

4. Then simply go through the likes/comments and add the new ones to that list.

5. When you are spending some time looking for friends’ posts to interact with yourself, go to that Friend List and interact with them! This will not only reciprocate the interaction but it will tell Facebook they are important to you, and you will start seeing more of their posts.

6. To find that Friend List again go to the left sidebar of your main Facebook Home page, and click Friends on the left, and More to get to your Friend Lists. Click on the name of the list you created, and your central news feed becomes posts only by that list.

    Excellent video, thanks for sharing Karen!
    This is a great solution for the opposite too: “Friends that rarely post” so their posts don’t get lost.
    “Create more Facebook Interest lists” is now on my to-do list
