1. Hello! I’ve been reading some of your blog’s latest entries, and you have some very interesting posts in general. Creating a new friends list for just the friends you want to hear about is a great tip, but I still feel ambivalent about it. Do you have a take on the habit of adding friends that you don’t really want to hear about in the first place? On the one hand, it strikes me as insincere. On the other hand, refusing to add back someone who adds you — because you won’t read that person’s updates anyway — makes you look snobbish.

    1. Hi Madeline, given that “social” doesn’t mean ‘party’, it means ‘society’, so it often means more than Friends – it also means Contacts. Some of my friends/contacts do status updates in their native language – maybe one that I don’t speak well – I want to stay friends, but not have a stream of Indonesian or Arabic or Chinese crowding my feed.

      MY NEWSFEED is a subset of my friends feeds – but any time I want to catch up, I can click NEWSFEED just below to get ALL the newsfeeds again.

      Hope this helps 😛

  2. awesome! – I have now removed all the activities that people would never talk about on the phone but seem compelled to share on the social web.

  3. Hi Laurel, this is a great idea. I’m unable to drag the list to the top after I’ve created it though. Does that still work for you? I’m wondering if Facebook disabled the ability to reorder the lists.

  4. Hi Laurel, thank you for the good idea!

    Blake, I had the same problem, but I managed to solve it by clicking on “more” under the lists, thus making all my lists visible and then I could drag the other ones over MY NEWSFEED list, (aparently you cannot drag the active list). Hope that helps.
    Take care,

  5. Thanks so much. I couldn’t find this information at all at Facebook’s help section. It’s like some kind of secret–now I can avoid clutter by those, um, juvenile friends who keep taking online quizzes…Thanks again.

  6. That’s a great tip.

    But I notice that my own posts (and people’s comments on them) will not show up in this. Is there a way to make myself part of the list?

  7. Re the last post:

    Sorry. I worked it out now. My own posts will show if they are posted while that friends list is selected. I see…

  8. I really want to be able to do this but the dragging isn’t working. And I don’t have a ‘more’ option under my lists. I have the list created, just can’t get it to the right place. Is there a non drag and drop way to do it?

  9. Hi,

  10. Hi there,
    i absolutely loved this feature and it helped alot. But since the FB red0–again, for the millionth time–it no longer works. Any suggestion with this new an improved FB that i like a lot less than the old one/

  11. Magnificent beat ! I wish to apprentice while you amend your web site,
    how could i subscribe for a blog site? The account aided me a acceptable deal.
    I had been a little bit acquainted of this your broadcast provided bright clear

  12. It was a smooth sailing since our onboarding software had all details on company policy
    and even basic training packages to help new employees become
    productive quickly. The role of the manager in performance management is to clearly communicate the company’s goals, align their individual employees’ behavior
    with them and monitor performance. Specific examples provide
    tangible targets for employees to shoot for.
