Facebook Added A New “Friend to Just Acquaintance” Feature
Last year Facebook introduced the Close Friends and Acquaintances lists to help its users see more of what they want in their news feed. Using these lists helps Facebook users see more posts from their close friends and fewer from acquaintances they don’t know well.
The options back then were to either unsubscribe to alerts from these close friends or completely remove them from your friends list, or “unfriend” them, the latter being a more hurtful and obvious way of filtering out all their talks or feeds that don’t make any sense to you at all.
Well, I have good news for you, Facebookers. Facebook must have listened to all of your prayers because according to a report, the social network giant just added a new feature that is going to softly eliminate “nonsense” talks from your extra sensitive and over-sharing friends by putting them in your acquaintance lists instead without them actually knowing it.
This new feature lets users get fewer alerts from your friends that you put on that acquaintance lists, and when you open it up, you can just click Manage List and check or uncheck what kind of updates you want to see from them.
In summary, now you don’t have to keep clicking Hide Post for all the annoying things you don’t want to see and read. And the best part in all of these? Finally you can now say goodbye to animosity or hard feelings among friends and get back to a more peaceful Facebook surfing experience with this new feature.
