I previously called this feature the “LinkedIn Killer.” Facebook has now added the ability to group your friends into custom groups. You can name each group and create as many groups as you like. While there aren’t custom privacy setting for each list there is a nice feature where you are able to message everyone within each group. Have a group of business contacts that you would like to message? Maybe a group of fans? Now you can finally group each of those people together.
While I believe that the next step would be to have custom privacy settings, this is a great step by Facebook. I am immediately going to go group my friends just as Mark Cuban described last night. This is a really great feature and I’m sure it will help many of us that have a friend list that is way to long (or as some would argue, the insecure group).
Is this feature going to enable you to switch over from LinkedIn?
