How To Manage All of Your Facebook Friends

Facebook Friends Lists
Facebook Friend Lists

You finally managed to reach your goal of more than a 300 friends on Facebook, but now you are facing a dilemma: How do you manage to track all these friends?

Fortunately there is a solution. Facebook lets you divide all of your friends into small segments, or ‘lists’ (e.g. Family, Best friends, College friends, childhood friends, etc), which you can use to track specific news feed of your friends. For example, I created  lists for my Family, Best Friends, childhood friends, work friends, marketing groups,  Military Friends, and others. This way I can click on each list and get specific information about different people. From a marketing point of view this can help  businesses gather specific information about different segments of their market, but this post is not about marketing, thus I will not cover it today.

These are the steps to go about it:

  1. Log on to your profile
  2. Click on Friends on the top menu
  3. Click ‘All Connections’ on the top left menu
  4. Click ‘Create New List’
  5. Type name of your desired list (e.g. family, work friends)
  6. Select the friends to include in that list
  7. Repeat for other lists.

This is a great way to keep track on all of your friends. If you have too many friends, more than 1000 let’s say, then you can create sub lists as well. For example: Best friends; super best friends; Best friends I can trust; etc

Go ahead and create your lists, and then make it a habit to follow it so next time you will not forget your friends birthday.
