Instead of scrolling through your entire Facebook timeline for updates from your closest friends or family, try using this list instead.
If you have a lot of friends on your Facebook profile, then you know how crazy it can get when trying to keep up with everyone's status updates. You may have tried using the Most Recent mode for your timeline, but the posts you want to read get lost in a sea of game updates and location check-ins.
To keep track of the most important updates, you should add people to your Close Friends list. However, just adding friends to the list is not enough -- you'll also need to adjust your notification settings. Ready to get started? Here's how:
Now you'll have no need to scroll through your feed, making sure you didn't miss updates from the people you are closest to. Additionally, you will get notifications on your smartphone or via email for each update (like you would when someone replies to your posts).
Do you have a helpful Facebook tip? Please share it in the comments below.
