It seems that Facebook has started feeling the heat from its new arch rival Google plus. Today, Facebook has announced a new feature called “smart friend list” which is, interestingly, quite similar to Google plus’s “circle”. This feature is an extension of the existing Facebook’s “Friend List”. However, this time it has bypassed the 20 users’ restriction and provides a full control over the various type of listing.

Using Smart Friend List, users can classify their friends into multiple groups identical to circle. Earlier users had to create groups manually, which used to take lots of time and keep them away from the best use of this feature.

“Lists have existed for several years, but you’ve told us how time-consuming it is to organize lists for different parts of your life and keep them up to date” says Blake Ross – Director of Product.

Company is on its way to roll out four new improvements under lists:

  • Smart lists – It automatically creates list which comprises people, according to their work, family, school etc. One can justify this with an example of Google Plus’s circle. Friends will automatically get added in the list and user can classify them according to the groups.
  • Personalized lists – It can be created by the users based on their relationship with Facebook friends.
  • Easier listing – User can add their Facebook connection to a particular list.
  • Restricted lists– It comprises of list of users who can’t access to your information on Facebook.

Earlier users were restrictive towards using the friend list due to applied restrictions. Now with the launch of new smart friend list, users are safer in sharing their information, photos and updates on Facebook.

These changes will help user to feel more comfortable with privacy and an effective communication among with sets of friends over Facebook.
