How To Create Facebook Lists

How To Create Facebook Lists

Most people are un-aware that there is now a feature on Facebook that will allow you to create lists of all those you want to follow, so I have added a great video in the post to show you How To Create Facebook Lists.

The great thing about Facebook when they made the changes last year to our personal profiles was that they gave us the ability to put people into lists. We had lists for all sorts of things like countries, friends,, family, school friends, ex-girl friends etc etc :-)   and then Google + came and also allowed us to do the same they also offer us the ability to put people into lists. That makes life easy as we can keep things very neat and tidy. Nothing quite like being organised, then the people we really wanted to hear from or share with were in special groups… very friendly I thought…

Now Facebook has gone one step further we can now setup lists for who we want to get posts from in Facebook… It’s abit like an RSS feed in some ways in that with an RSS feed we subscribe to whatever or where ever the feed comes from and then every time there is a new article we get notified.

Well it’s the same thing with the lists in Facebook. We can go and find the Favorite People, Books, Companies, Movies and we can put them into our own special lists. The other cool thing is if you follow someone and they have a list you like the look of you can also add that list to your list…

I know it sounds all very complicated but it’s not and it will save you time going through piles of Facebook posts to find the things that you are really interested in…

Of course this is both good and bad.

The Good:  If you want people to put you in there list then you are going to have to give great content so that should tidy things up abit and stop the spamy affiliate Fan Pages…

The Bad: If you are one of those spammy pages I mentioned before you may find you don’t get much traffic or interaction, so we are all going to have to lift our game.

Here is a video I found by Amy Porterfield that explains it so well. I was going to do my own video by why re-invent the wheel this is very good.

If you can’t see your lists on your Facebook it just may not be in your country yet, so here is a link to Facebook Lists and you can start there and follow the video

That’s it really a short post but one that has a great video with everything you need to know on how to create Facebook lists

I thought this would be really helpful as well Mari Smith had this created on her site and points to a number of the changes to the New Facebook Business Pages. I know it’s not that clear but if you click on the picture it will take you to her site where the picture is and you can download it there.

  1. Can’t wait to get my list set up. I run my own website and add tons of people i don’t know to facebook, so I can share my website and post with them. Thanks for teaching this, was going crazy through the newsfeed, and could rarely find a friends post!

  2. Your welcome Ryan, enjoy and go list build :-)

  3. I love it and find it way easier to monitor my page from spam. I hated having to go from just my post to clicking everyones post. With list and the new timeline for pages it is easy to monitor the page.

  4. I have my personal facebook page and I also run 2 separate fan pages for different business’s, and the fans of each page add my personal page. This will help me keep them separated and know how i know them.

  5. I know some people love the new timelines and all. But do you know of anyway to get our old layouts back Gail?

  6. That video from Amy was so helpful, it would of taken me days to figure out what she explained in minutes. Thanks for posting this list article Gail.
