Facebook Overwhelm? Create friend lists!


Are you overwhelmed by the amount of updates coming through your Facebook news feed? Do you even care what your boss had for dinner last night? A way to avoid overload on Facebook is to create friend lists. That way you can view the updates of who you want to view and filter out everyone else.

Here’s how to create a friend list on Facebook:

From the Home page → Click on Friends (located on the left side of the screen) → click +Create a List button at the top right. Name the list (ie. High School Friends) then select all of your high school friends and click on Save List.

You can create as many lists as you need. Next time you log in to Facebook to check your news feed check by friend list. You can have a list for family so it’s easy to quickly see what all your family is up to. Another one for work, etc. The newly created lists will be located under the Friends link on the left side of the home page.

If you want to delete a friend list on Facebook follow these steps:

Click on Account → edit friends →  On the left column find the category “Lists” → click on the list you want to delete → then click “Delete List”
