Facebook Lists: Facebook’s direct answer to Twitter Lists

Lists have long been one of the most underrated features of Twitter – but how many know about Facebook’s little-known equivalent?

Launched over four years ago primarily to make sure users only regularly see updates from their closest Facebook friends, Facebook Lists also offer a handy way for admins to keep up-to-date with posts from all of the Facebook Pages they manage.

How to create a Facebook List of your Pages

  1. Scroll down to Friends on the left-hand side of your Facebook News Feed on desktop. Hover over Friends and click ‘More’.
  2. Click Create List.
  3. Enter a name for your list and the names of friends you’d like to add. You can add or remove friends from your lists at any time. If you want to a create a List of Pages you manage, skip this step by hitting ‘Create’.
  4. Left-click your new List, select ‘Manage List’ then ‘Edit list’ and then select ‘Pages’ from the dropdown list to start adding the Pages you manage to your List. You can add your own or other organisations’ Pages that you’d like to keep an eye on.

Tip: You can also add the list to your Favourites to keep your new list at the top of your Facebook toolbar.
