We are bloggers….
But who cares..
Our friends don't know what we are doing online, our family members are completely unaware about our blogs and our online activities.
We have surrounded ourselves with so much information around us that we keep reading stuff and sharing it on our wall. For us this is a helping hand activity because this is going to help other bloggers to know more about blogging, but for our family and friends this is a totally CRAP activity.
We keep annoying our family and friends with our silly blogging and tech updates.
These days I am getting this question on regular basis and newbie bloggers are asking me how can they separate this.
Some people have even made different profiles for handling family/friends circle and another for bloggers only. Handling two profile is a very tough job so here I am going to provide your solution to separate your updates easily.
Facebook has one awesome feature where you can make list and share your stuff with that list only.
Here is how to do this.
Step 1: Make a List on Facebook
1. Click here to make a list.
2. Click on create
3. Give it a name and add few members in it by typing their names.
Step 2: Start adding your blogging friends
Your list is ready, so start adding your blogging friends.
After clicking on Add Friends link, one window will popup. You can start typing your blogging friend's names and then keep adding them.
How to add blogging friends from their profile?
Step 1: Go to their profile and HOVER your mouse on friends button.
Step 2: Click on Add to another list.
Step 3: Find your list and click on it.
Congrats !! You have successfully added this friend in your Blogging Friends list.
How to separate your updates from family/Friends?
Step 1: Click on following button
Step 2: Click on See all list at the bottom.
After clicking on see all lists, it will look like this.
Step 3: Select your list and share your status.
In following picture Blogging Friends list has been selected for sharing my update.
Now every status which you will share with this list will be visible to friends in that particular list only.
You can create multiple lists for your close friends, for your family, classmates, teachers or anything. Just select that list while updating status and show your updates to those people only.
I am personally using this from last 1 year and have separated all my blogging related updates from my family and friends. If there is any general update then I make it public otherwise I never share anything public.
Hope this little trick (actually not trick) will help you to make your blogging life on Facebook simpler and you will stop annoying your family and friends.
If you are facing any issue to implement this, then you can ask in comment section. I would love to help you and solve your queries.
