Facebook pushes for more personal updates with launch of new Lists feature

To Do's, New Year's Resolutions, top restaurants to try or places to go, and more can be added using the option. But, keep an eye out under the "What's On Your Mind" status to see if you got the new update. In recent years, the personal content of Facebook has waned and made way for more advertisements, memes, links and cooking videos.

Accoding to TechCrunch, the feature is being rolled out gradually, and may not immediately reflect for you. Facebook will display the list in a neat and tidy colour image.

In its continued push for more meaningful interactions on its platform, Facebook rolling out a new feature that will allow for more personal posts from users.

You'll soon find the new option to create a list in your status update box at the top of your Facebook feed.

To encourage constructive conversations, Facebook makes it easy for friends to copy each other's lists and offer their own opinions on the rankings via the comments section.

The feature has reportedly started to rollout slowly, and is expected to be available globally in the coming days.

Earlier this year, the Facebook CEO revealed that his big goal for 2018 was to make sure our Facebook usage is "time well spent". The company is projected to further lose around 2.1 million such users more this year. It should be next to other options like Check In, Photo/Video, Tag Event, and Support Nonprofit. But when it does, you'll be able to create lists that can be personalized with different colors and emoji and organized via bullet points or numbers. Recently, the company announced that the feed will move away from showing news and brand content to focus more on posts from friends and family. On Tuesday, Facebook's head of News Feed, Adam Mosseri, pushed back on claims that lists are created to collect advertising information on your favorite subjects.
