Facebook Launches Smart Friends Lists [blog.facebook.com]
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.

    Interesting, but how will this affect Groups and affiliate friends. Maybe separate family, friends, business friends, and affiliates into Groups to avoid loss of contact with business relationships.
    I do not know about anyone else but my business friends keep in touch closer than family and friends on Twitter and Facebook.

    Like all good simple ideas, Facebook will add so many features and options that the average person won't know how to use it and a new simple social networking destination will take hold.

    I just went into Facebook because someone asked me to post something to a group, (haven't been using FB for a long time).

    I got pop-up message boxes for me to make decisions about who to share what with, to claim my "facebook email address", and other notifications and settings -- since it required me actually thinking and deciding stuff, I "decided" to just leave instead.

    Well, facebook is just like killing its business slowly. Most of the users are average or below average and joined facebook for the sake of finding new friends. If they keep up changes which requires high level of thinking, then they will surely loss their market.

    Very good points. Now they changed privacy settings to essentially shut G+ up, I got like 4 options to choose from. Stupid.

    Facebook ain't done yet with privacy concerns.

    I noticed someone posted a group picture of me from 30 years age, and has tagged it with my name. What's up with that? Doesn't matter how much I keep myself offline, Facebook is going to put up pic and details of me anyway apparently.

    I think you can untag yourself now. Or you need to approve it...it was in the announcement somewhere, don't recall all details. .

    I like the latest updates. I've always wanted to see separate streams from my friends, family, and business contacts. The new features make this possible and I can also send messages to any list that I choose without broadcasting that message to people in the other lists.

    I didn't approve it, that's for sure.

    Privacy's not that hard to figure out, Facebooks could simply use common sense for this kind of stuff. They've specifically implemented the ability for a third party to post a picture of me and then tag it to me. If that's not a privacy concern then I don't know what is.
