Facebook have three default lists to organize your friends – Close Friends,Acquaintances, and Restricted.These three default facebook list have different role.Let me explain one by one.
Close Friends: By adding friends to your ‘Close Friend List’ you will be notified everytime when they update status,add photos and videos in your notifications as well as newsfeed.To add any best buddy to this list just hover over ‘Friends’ link in his/her profile and hit Close Friends from drop down menu And to see your close friends updates and activities,just click on the Close Friends list at left side of your homepage.
Acquaintances: This list is for the folks,whom you don’t need to stay close with their updates. By adding folks to this list,you will never get their updates and activities in your newsfeed.However,they will be notified about your updates until and unless,they didn’t add you to the same list in their profile.
