  1. on your facebook page, click on friends on the top toolbar and then click on all friends.
  2. you will then see a list of all your friends. click on make a new list on the left hand side.
  3. give your list a descriptive name (i.e. waco friends, on-line friends, or family) and hit enter.
  4. you can add friends to your list by either typing their name or click on select mulitiple friends to bring up all your friends and you can click on the ones you want to add to the group. once you have selected the friends you want to add, click on save list.
  5. you can add or remove friends from your groups at any time by clicking on the group name.
  6. to remove someone from a group, just click on the "X" to the right of their picture and current status. you will then have the option to remove them from the list or remove them from your friends all together.
groups are a helpful way to send information and invites out to only certain friends, you can also lock down your profile by using groups. more about that next week!
