The New Facebook

Boy nobody likes the new Facebook do they? Wow. Like **really** hate it with the might and power of 10×912 suns. Serious, hardcore hate.

Here’s a little trick for you, in case you haven’t taken the time to poke around and see just how _cool_ the new Facebook _can_ be. Watch this.

On your main page, over on the left, you should see this.

Therein lies the power my friends. You can create your own lists! Filter the noise and only see what you want to see. And, it’s simple!

Start by clicking the friends tab at the top of the page.

On the left side of your friends page, you will see this.

Click where it says make a new list and to it add the friends you want. Family, celebrities, your favorite club, whatever you want. And, as far as I can tell, there is no limit to the number of lists you make. Heck, you could even make a list with only one person in it if you are a stalker like that.

Once the list is done, your homepage will have the new list showing on the left. You can see in the example above that I have a list called MINI. MINI Owners only in that one for me, when I want to only see what’s happening with them.

Hopefully this helps. The new Facebook is different to be sure, but there are some great features there, you just have to dig a little bit.

  1. The feature I am either waiting for, or can’t find: the ability to post a status update and have only a certain list of friends see it?

    1. Try going into Settings –> Privacy (it drops down) and then choose profile. Lots and lots of choices for you there.
