Media Release: Comment on Facebook’s ‘Smart lists’


EARLIER this month, Facebook announced that it was going to improve its lists feature by introducing so-called ‘Smart lists’, a new feature which auto-generates lists of updates and contents for users.

Says QueryClick: “The update which is already in operation was designed to group together associated pieces of information such as status updates, photographs and links into the correct list, or category, and could help make finding specific information much easier on the site.”

Christopher Liversidge, QueryClick’s managing director, comments: “The new ‘Smart list’ feature was designed with user comfort in mind because it helps Facebook users in creating special categories or lists on their news feed, based on their information.

“For example, if a user has put down what school or university they attended, and some of their Facebook friends who went to the same school or university do too, then a ‘Smart list’ for that very establishment will be created.

“So, if a user says that they went to Oxford University, and then their friends, Bill and Ben, also confirm that they studied there, then a ‘Smart list’ called ‘Oxford University’ will be created, with the original user, Bill and Ben all on it.

“All in all, there will be four categories that make up the auto-generated smart lists, namely: Work, School, Family and City, which means that users will be able to streamline their news feed and be able to concentrate on the people and the subjects that mean the most to them on any given day.

“So, if a user wants to try to find an old school friend, all they have to do is go their school’s smart list and scroll through what’s there, which will save time and effort.”

Chris continues: “The addition of these smart lists will really make it so much easier to find relevant information in Facebook, as everything associated with a certain place, such as a school or a place of work have been handily put together, which means that users will find what they’re searching for quite quickly, when compared to searching for it manually through the site.

“Users can also choose to add their Facebook friends as either a close friend or an acquaintance to filter content further, and Facebook can even suggest users to add to lists, which not only makes using the site much easier than before, but also a lot more fun.”
