Facebook Begins Rolling Out Smart Lists To Provide A More Google+ Experience [News]

Ads by Google

Select users may notice a change on Facebook, because they has begun rolling out a new feature called Smart Lists. Smart Lists are like Google+ in that it sorts your friends in a way that makes it easy to navigate, keep track of and share with them, but the key difference is that Facebook Smart Lists do all of this automatically, so you do not have to take the time to go back and reorganize your entire friends list.

The new feature will group friends into three categories: coworkers, classmates, and all people who live within 50 miles of you. Obviously, with it being narrowed in this way you don’t get the same level of customization as Google+, but you also don’t have to put any effort in to make this work.

Once Facebook groups your friends, you will be able to share and message only people from certain groups. I think this is especially cool with the geographic limiting. Now if you are having something go on that only is relevant to people who live near, you won’t clutter up the news feeds of people who live at the other end of the country.

Right now, only select users have the feature, but we expect it to roll out to more Facebook members as time goes on.
