Organize Facebook with Lists

Office Organization Success

One of the features I love about Facebook is the ability to be able to group your friends by lists; so instead of wading through hundreds of status updates, you can quickly scan what’s going on by going through one of your lists. I have separate lists for friends, family, clients etc. And one of my favourite lists is to group my Page Likes together – so I have a list for business pages and a separate list for personal pages.

My Facebook Break-Up

Denise Aday

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with Facebook for a good while now and have considered leaving the social media platform several times — lately with increasing frequency. So, prompted by an invite to a public Facebook event, I temporarily de-activated my account and just concluded an entire week away from it.
