Keeping best friends close and fair-weather friends at arm's length is a challenge in Facebook — especially when they're all thrown together in one News Feed. The thing is, Facebook doesn't know the difference between your BFF and the acquaintances you want to avoid, but you do. That's why Facebook lets users organize friends into Lists, to control exactly who sees their profile content and who shows up in their News Feed.
Like the page where users can download all their Facebook data, the Lists feature is little known in the Facebook universe. So take a minute to explore just how much Lists can do and wonder how you ever used Facebook without it.
