Facebook gets personal with new lists update

Facebook has introduced a new feature that will allow users to make a list of various things and add it to their story.

Lists will appear as a part of the "What's on your mind?" status update box as an option alongside Polls, Feeling/Activity, Photo/Video, Check In, GIF, and other items. Like other recent additions and changes to the News Feed, Lists was created to encourage "meaningful connections between people rather than passive consumption of content", Facebook said.

Accoding to TechCrunch, the feature is being rolled out gradually, and may not immediately reflect for you.

The Lists can have coloured backgrounds and emojis can be used in the list title.

At the time of this article the new list feature is only available on Android powered devices, for users of the iPhone they able to view other lists but can not make their own any yet.

The company's new Lists feature will appear as an option on the status update bar.

The new Facebook feature allows friends to copy one another's lists and offer their own thoughts on the list through the comments and rankings section. A recent eMarketer report indicates that Facebook lost approximately 2.8 million US users aged under 25 years in 2017.

Facebook is now grappling with a declining user-base over in the USA. Tap the Lists option to create a customized list for your news feed. But when it does, you'll be able to create lists that can be personalized with different colors and emoji and organized via bullet points or numbers.

However, with the rollout of Lists, Facebook is running the risk of people flooding the News Feed with boring or annoying updates that turn people off the site. Since this update is happening as part of a staged rollout, if the below steps aren't visible yet, you will need to check back to see when Facebook updates the app for you.
