One of my favorite tools for keeping Facebook from becoming a frustrating mess is going away.
“Facebook is shutting down Friend List Feeds sometime today, according to a message posted in the Facebook app. The feature allowed users to scroll through only those posts from one of their designated friend lists — for example, family, work colleagues, neighbors, industry peers and so on. The end result was a much more personalized version of Facebook — one where you could catch up on the updates that were important to you, without the clutter from Facebook Pages, posts from acquaintances or those from friends whose updates you didn’t care to follow for any other reason.”
I realize that not many people even knew about it, based on the number of strange looks I got when I suggested using them instead of complaining about the FB feed, but it really was one of the better tools for managing your time on Facebook and to make sure you saw updates from the people you most want to see updates from.
Now we’re all dependent on the algorithm. Yuck.
