Facebook Lists

I have become familiar with a relatively new feature on Facebook where you can arrange your friends into lists. You can create the names of the lists such as family, acquaintances, old school friends, current friends, co-workers, and so on. You can access this feature by going to your facebook profile and clicking on the friends listed on the left hand side of the screen. Once you click on it your list of friends will appear. At the top of the screen there will be a tab labelled "Create List". Click on that, name the list you want to create, then add your friend's name to that list. Once you are done adding names to the list, click create list. You can edit or delete your list at any time. I find the lists helpful if I only want to share a certain status update or photo with a particular group of people. You may not be as personal with friends in your acquaintance list or co-worker list so you can control what they see without blocking them from your wall. I think this is a great privacy feature.
