The end result was a much more personalized version of Facebook - one where you could catch up on the updates that were important to you, without the clutter from Facebook Pages, posts from acquaintances, or those from friends whose updates you didn't care to follow for any other reason.

Facebook's note regarding the feeds' shutdown says "don't worry - you can still continue to create, edit and share to your friend lists." What's winding down are the Friend List Feeds, which is a way to read these specific people's updates in their own separate News Feed within the Facebook app.

Facebook Dating will be a feature, not an app. Here's a peek

  Facebook Dating will be a feature, not an app. Here's a peek Facebook Dating doesn't plan to launch a standalone dating app, which should temper expectations about how deeply it's diving into Tinder and Match Group's territory.Facebook gave a preview of its Dating features back in May at its F8 conference. Now we're getting an early look at its onboarding process thanks to screenshots pulled from the Facebook app's code by mobile researcher and frequent TechCrunch tipster Jane Manchun Wong. The designs give a sense of the more mature vibe of Facebook Dating, which seems more purposefully for finding a serious partner than a one night stand.

According to Facebook ’s message, Friend List Feed are shutting down on August 9, 2018 — which is today . However, the feature is still available as of the time of “ We ’ re shutting down this lesser-used feature to focus our efforts on improving the main News Feed experience,” a spokesperson said.

Friend lists have been around on Facebook for a number of years, but the original version required a lot of manual labor. You'd first have to create a list, title it, and then go through all your friends one-by-one to determine who to add. And of course, as you added new Facebook friends, you'd have to remember to add them to the appropriate list, too.

Few adopted this feature - in fact, Facebook said in 2011 that 95 percent of Facebook users hadn't made a single list. To make things simpler, Facebook launched "smart lists", where it began auto-grouping your friends into lists for you to save you the effort. Facebook focused on making smart lists where it could identify some common factor based on profile data - like people who went to school with you, people you work with, people who live within 50 miles of you, and other things.

That way, you could use the lists for selective sharing and to browse their feeds, without having to do the work of list-building yourself.

But even with Smart Lists, it seems that not many people likely used the "Friend List Feeds" feature, specifically - or perhaps, even knew it existed.

In addition, with the rise of Facebook Groups, those who want to share and browse posts focused on a given topic - like neighborhood news, discussions about a favorite show, people going through a similar health crisis, or anything else - could just join a private group instead.

According to Facebook's message, Friend List Feed are shutting down on August 9, 2018 - which is today. However, the feature is still available as of the time of writing.

Facebook cracks down on opioid dealers after years of neglect .
Facebook's role in the opioid crisis could become another scandal following yesterday's release of harrowing new statistics from the Center for Disease Control. It estimated there were nearly 30,000 synthetic opioid overdose deaths in the US in 2017, up from roughly 20,000 the year before. When recreational drugs like Xanax and OxyContin are adulterated with the more powerful synthetic opioid Fentanyl, the misdosage can prove fatal. Xanax, OxyContin, and other pain killers are often bought online, with dealers promoting themselves on social media including Facebook.
