While we suppose people still do that from time to time, like we said, the feature has evolved and according to a report from TechCrunch, Facebook has introduced a new feature called "Lists".

Facebook Lists will appear in "What's on your mind?" and popup in status update box a alongside Feeling/Activity, Polls, Photo/Video, Check In, GIF, and other options.

The Lists feature is merely the latest move by the social media giant to encourage less nonpersonal content on a user's news feed. The list can be anything they desire: a to-do list, favorite movies, New Year's resolutions, a definitive ranking of Parks and Recreation season five episodes.

Facebook is getting a status update with a new feature called lists.

The lists are also designed with the idea that friends could copy each other's lists to share their own opinions about the subject at hand. The first major update of its kind in over a year, Lists comes as Facebook tries to get more people to share personal content instead of viral videos and news article. Over 2016, Facebook had reportedly lost over 15 percent of users. 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. A recent eMarketer report indicates that Facebook lost approximately 2.8 million US users aged under 25 years in 2017. 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. This feature is expected to extract more personal stories from users' lives. In fairness, why would you want people's grocery shopping lists clogging up your Facebook feed?
