How to Organize Friends in Facebook


Keeping track of all your contacts can become time-consuming if you have numerous Facebook friends. One way to bring some order to your Facebook friends is to organize your friends into separate lists. You might want to create one list for co-workers, another list for personal friends and a dedicated list for family members. Once you've organized your friends into lists, you can set different permissions for each group so that you can control what you share with them. Organize your Facebook friends into separate lists from the "Edit Friends" section of your Facebook account settings.

  • Open your computer's Web browser, and sign into Facebook.

  • Click the "Account" link on the top menu of your Facebook home page.

  • Click "Edit Friends" from the drop-down menu.

  • Click the "Recently Interacted" tab to open the friends filter drop-down menu, and select "All Friends" from the menu options.

  • Click the "Create A List" button. This opens the "Create New List" pop-up window.

  • Type a memorable title for the list in the dialog box -- for example, choose "Close Friends" or "Co-Workers." Click the "Create List" button.

  • Add friends to the list by clicking on the friend's name/thumbnail image from the viewing pane in the "Create New List" window. Alternatively, type the name of the friend into the "Add To List" field. This auto-completes the friend's name as you start to type it. Click on the name to add the friend to the list.

  • Click "Save List" to store your list. Repeat this process for each group that you want to create.

Tips & Warnings

  • Assign different permissions to each list from the "Sharing on Facebook" section of the "Privacy Settings" page that you can select from "Account" menu.
