Facebook ‘Smart Lists’ – Because of Google+ Circles?

Evidently Facebook doesn’t want to be left behind and they’ve seen Google’s ‘circles’ feature and so they’ve put together their own equivalent feature.

A word of advice to all you who have Joel Watts as a FB friend- make sure he’s in the lowest circle, so he gets used to it…  just sayin…

To make lists incredibly easy and even more useful, we’re announcing three improvements:

  • Smart lists – You’ll see smart lists that create themselves and stay up-to-date based on profile info your friends have in common with you–like your work, school, family and city.
  • Close Friends and Acquaintances lists – You can see your best friends’ photos and posts in one place, and see less from people you’re not as close to.
  • Better suggestions – You can add the right friends to your lists without a lot of effort.

Friend Lists are completely optional. If you don’t like lists, you don’t have to use them.
