Facebook – the biggest social media website all over the world – starts smelling the competition after the private launch of Google Plus – the best competitor of Facebook yet -, so they started solving the points where Google Plus has advantage, so they previously launched the Skype integrated video chat and started working on the main huge difference between the two sites, The circles created by “Google Plus”, sure its unethical to reproduce them in the same way and that “Facebook” will use its identity if they invented circles too, so they took the smart way and worked on developing their “Lists” creating the “Facebook Smartlists”

The “Smartlists” – even if Facebook imitates Google Plus – but after a try, they really are great and very useful. Facebook automatically organize your friends into 4 main lists: Friends, Coworkers, Acquaintances and Nearby. the friends are grouped into these lists using a mathematical algorithm, but u never need to worry, you can easily manage them later

Facebook Smartlists

The new Smart lists are located on the left sidebar on the user’s home page so you can see feeds from a list only instead of seeing all the feeds of your contacts, and you can add new lists to the existing ones.

once you click on a profile you two new buttons on the right side of the user name, the first one is the list which this user is grouped and where you can edit it and or put this user into restriction, and next to it a Subscribe button, where you can subscribe to posts from this profile where you can change subscription between All posts, Most posts or Important posts.

Facebook Smartlists

when Google plus was launched, all social media experts put a big hope that it will beat Facebook. now it was clear that Facebook team is very smart, anyway, we should say thanks to Google plus because they pushed Facebook to update their features quickly

  3. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
