I'm sure you've notice all the changes on Facebook. Dave Peck has written this post, he explains the new lists (Smart List and Special Friend List) in layman terms and how you can best leverage these to good effect.
There are friends and then there are some special friends. Until now, Facebook has weighed them all on the same scale. In fact, Google Plus exploited this very weakness to great effect with its circles feature. However, that’s all set to change with Facebook’s new Smart List and Special Friend List.
The underlying principle is simple – the one size fits all rule just doesn’t work when it comes to friendship so there got to be a way to treat friends differently.
In this post, I explain the new lists (Smart List and Special Friend List) in layman terms and how you can best leverage these to good effect.
For those who are on Google+, Smart Lists are essentially the circles for Facebook. In fact, it’s one step ahead of G+ circles. Smart Lists automatically group your Facebook friends in these different categories: family, city, high school, college and work.
All the people in your feed who listed that they went to your same school or college will automatically be added to those feeds, and all the people who list where they work will be added to your work friends group.
So, users are saved the hassle of being forced to add people in lists manually. The best part – you can turn it off and customize it as per your needs.
In this post, I express my opinion on how Facebook doubled its revenues and what your business can learn from it.
