Facebook Lists Feature Gives Users Another Option for Status Updates

Facebook launches 'Lists' to personalise status update box

Like any status update, your list will be shared on your Facebook News Feed for all your friends to comment on and respond with their relevant reactions. The company is calling this new feature as "Lists".

Lists encourage users to share more and generate interactions with friends, something that was lost to a certain degree over the years, due to the explosion of other content on Facebook. The feature is not available to all users at the moment as it just started rolling out globally this week, but should be making its way to your account soon.

In its latest efforts, the company has introduced a new tool called Lists that encourages you to post more about yourself.

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




In January, Facebook reprioritized the News Feed to show more posts from friends and family instead of brands and publishers.

Lists pretty much does what it sounds like, allowing people on Facebook to make a list of whatever they like - To Do's, travel wish lists, New Year's resolutions and more. But one problem with that strategy is that people have been posting less personal content over the years. Not only has the number of personal posts dramatically declined over the years, Facebook's younger userbase which is frequent in such updates has also declined. According to a report from eMarketer this week, Facebook lost approximately 2.8 million U.S. users under 25 in 2017, and will lose around 2.1 million more this year. It should be next to other options like Check In, Photo/Video, Tag Event, and Support Nonprofit.

Want to share your bucket list as a status update on Facebook? A recent eMarketer report indicates that Facebook lost approximately 2.8 million US users aged under 25 years in 2017. 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.
