Facebook Goes Old School With New List Feature

Facebook Goes Old School With New List Feature

The list can be anything they desire: a to-do list, favorite movies, New Year's resolutions, a definitive ranking of Parks and Recreation season five episodes.

Users can create their own lists with colored backgrounds, and decorate them with emoji.

The status box now contains options for users to add a poll, ask questions, add stickers, GIFs and much more. In recent years, the personal content of Facebook has waned and made way for more advertisements, memes, links and cooking videos.

The latest feature is added to its Status Updates box, allowing you to post lists to Facebook. Recently, the company announced that the feed will move away from showing news and brand content to focus more on posts from friends and family. Facebook has not said how long it will take for all users to receive the new update. The new way of posting status is called "Lists".

For now, the ability to create Lists is only available on Android. iOS users will be able to view Lists on their phones, but can't currently create them.

Facebook changed its algorithm earlier this year to "prioritize posts that spark conversations and meaningful interactions between people" while demoting public posts from businesses and publishers. According to a report from eMarketer this week, Facebook lost approximately 2.8 million U.S. users under 25 in 2017, and will lose around 2.1 million more this year. In a way, the company is trying to reconnect with its old self - a more "personal" platform. It should be next to other options like Check In, Photo/Video, Tag Event, and Support Nonprofit. Facebook has not said when it expects all users to gain access to the feature.

The social networking made a significant update to its News Feed last month. Or a list of things you'll want to do today? When you are happy with your list, tap the Share button in the top-right corner.

All of these updates are created to entice more people to interact with other users by posting more content and share more details about themselves.
