Facebook Adds Smart Lists

By Communications

In the ever-changing world of Facebook, there’s an update visible this evening. Smart Lists look promising: Facebook is suggesting and sorting your friends into lists such as:

  • Close Friends
  • Family
  • (your high school)
  • (your city)

The Close Friends suggestions for me were pretty accurate as was Family. The high school suggestions were way off. I’m encouraged by this because I think this is a step in the right direction, taking the best of what Google+ tried to do with circles and making that functionality much simpler in Facebook.
