Ever want to share a funny meme you saw but you don’t want to run off your clientele? My cousin has just that issue so, I decided to make this walk through on how to make a list on Facebook. This is also a 50 Questions post but the title was long enough as it is.
What is a Facebook List?
Here is the explanation from Facebook Help Center:
Lists are a way to organize things on Facebook, like your friends or the things you’re interested in. You can use lists to filter the stories you see in your News Feed or post an update for specific people, like your coworkers or friends who live near you.
In addition to any lists you create, you’ll also see smart lists. Smart lists create themselves and automatically stay up-to-date based on profile information you and your friends have in common
Enough of that, let’s get started on making a list!
How to make a list
When you are on your main Facebook page, look down the left hand side of the page for something that looks like this. Yours won’t say Libby Friends. It will probably have something else.
If you scroll over it, you will see a “more” come up. It will look like this.
Click on that and you will end up with a list that looks something like this.
At the top of that page is a “create list” button. Click on that
That’s what it looks like. Now name your list. I picked “pervs like me” just to be funny. Now populate your list with friends who are pervs like you… or people who would not care if you posted a dirty joke or a cuss word or naked pictures of yourself or whatever you think they would dig. And click create.
Now you will have a list of friends that are pervs like you! You’ll see just their posts once the list is made. If you go to Facebook, it will take you to everyone. Don’t worry. You can still post for everyone. It even has suggestions on the side for people you might like to add, just in case you forgot some pervy friend.
Let’s make a post!
Now that you have your victims all added to the list, time to post something for them. When you go to post something on your regular news feed it looks like this.
When you click on “friends” or “public”, it will have a drop down with “More Options”. Pick that.
You will have a list of your Facebook friends lists. Pick “pervs like me” or whatever you named your new list.
Or make your family gasp and pick them instead. Now when you post it will show only to that group of friends/ family/ perverts/ co-workers or whoever you want to make a list for!
Just remember to click the box and change it back to friends or public before you decide to post something safe for the general public.
I am working on how to do this on the facebook app too. I’ll get a post up as soon as I figure that one out.
