[HOW TO] create Friend lists on Facebook

Facebook lets you exclude certain people from seeing Facebook posts, but you’ll need to create a friends list first.  This tutorial will show you how to create friend lists on Facebook so you can do just that.

Step 4 – Scroll down and hit “+new list” and type in the name of the list you want to create.

Step 5 – Repeat steps 1-4 to add more friends to an existing list or to create a new friends list.

There you have it. Now you can curate posts for certain people on Facebook. If you are friendly with co-workers on Facebook, a good use would be to create a co-workers group, so you can exclude them from seeing certain posts.

Disclaimer: If there is ever anything that you think is too inappropriate for certain Facebook friends, you may want to reconsider posting it. I use this friends lists function to refrain from annoying certain friends with corny jokes that don’t apply to them, or commentary on onions.
