Facebook's new Lists feature focuses on more personal posts

FACEBOOK is launching a controversial new feature that will let friends share their to-do lists in your News Feed.

The feature will appear in the 'What's on your mind?' status update box.

The launch of Lists represents Facebook's latest attempt to get people to post more personal updates to the site, and engage with more content.

Dubbed "Lists", the feature allows the creation of attractive lists - for goals, or shopping - that could soon be clogging up your feed. Facebook will display the list in a neat and tidy colour image.

Facebook is getting a status update with a new feature called lists. The new feature has also been designed so that they are shareable and friends can copy a list and share it together with their own opinions. Facebook has not said how long it will take for all users to receive the new update.

As of now, Lists is only available to select users, but the feature is currently being rolled out globally to a wider audience.

However, over the years as the threat to online privacy has increased, people have started posting lesser of personal content on the web. 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.

Earlier this week, eMarketer released a report predicting that two million young people will stop using Facebook this year, and instead turn towards Snapchat and Instagram. It should be next to other options like Check In, Photo/Video, Tag Event, and Support Nonprofit.

Here are some suggestions for list topics you might want to post on Facebook: Best memes, your personal workout regime, 10 places you want to visit, and best free Netflix movies.

You'll be able to create your own list, clone any you see in your feed, and of course, like and comment on your friend's lists.
