Facebook’s News Feed is where you get all the updates on your friends, pages and people you follow, and so on. However depending on how many friends you have and how many pages you follow, it can be a mess which means that sometimes you miss out on certain things or friends that you do want to keep tabs on.

This is where Facebook introduced the Friend List Feeds, a feature in which users could scroll through posts from a list of people that that they actually want updates from. Unfortunately it seems that this feature has since been shut down as Facebook claims that this is because not many people use it.

The notice that it was shutting down appeared on the News Feed for some users, and now Facebook has confirmed it in a statement made to TechCrunch which reads, “We’re shutting down this lesser-used feature to focus our efforts on improving the main News Feed experience. While people won’t be able to view custom feeds from lists of friends, they’ll still be able to create and edit friends lists, and share just to these audiences whenever they post to Facebook.”

“In addition to these options, they can also keep customizing News Feed by visiting News Feed preferences to choose which posts they want to see first, or hide posts they don’t want to see.” The feature had a shut down date of the 9th of August, so if you’re logging in now and wondering where it went, this is why.
