How To Put Your Favorite Friends In The Spotlight On Facebook

| Posted in Facebook, Social Networking |

Put your Facebook Friends in the Spotlight Have you ever wondered how you can show a certain group of your Facebook friends?

Well, I just found out and would like to share it with you.

For whatever reason, there may be a certain group of friends you would like to show to everyone who comes to visit your Facebook profile.  They may be highly respected business people, co-workers, close personal friends, or maybe family members.

Usually Facebook just rotates through all of your friends randomly. But you can select certain people or lists of friends to be rotated through instead.

Here’ s how you do that…

When you are logged in and on your “Profile Page” click the little pencil icon in your Friends box.

You can change the settings in the “Edit Box” to whatever you would like to display.

Where it says “Always show these friends:” you can either type in individual names or you can select a certain list of your friends.

How to highlight a certain group of your facebook friends

If you haven’t grouped your friends into lists yet, here’s how you do that …

Go to your “Home” page and click on “Friends” in the left menu. Your friends will show up and the “+ Create a List” button at the top right corner. Click on it.

Enter a name for you list and highlight the friends you want to add to that list by clicking on them. When you have everyone selected, click “Create List.” And you’re done.

Add facebook friends to a group

Voilà! That’s it! You just selected a certain group of friends to show off.

You can change things at any time. You can highlight a certain group of your friends this month and a different one next month. Or you can change it every week. It’s totally up to you.

To Your Success,

Ilka Flood

Hi Ilka!

I know Twitter, you know Facebook, we should do a JV and write an e-book and sell it girlfriend! LOL

I’ve been intending to play around with FB groups, but just haven’t been on it much in the past few weeks. Thanks for saving me some time : )

Have a wonderful evening!

Hi Twila,

Hold that thought! Between the two of us, we’ll make millions :)

I know what you mean. There’s just so much to learn and there’s more of it every day. But, eventually we’ll get there.

Have an awesome evening!

Hi Susan,

Thanks! Glad you liked it.

I used SnagIt to do the screenshots. I think there’s a free trial. Check it out at snagit.com

I love this software and I use it quite a bit.

Have an awesome evening!

Hi Ilka,

Hey, those people in the picture above look familiar. I love how you provided this great explanation with grouping on Facebook. And what really helps (I can relate) is the use of pictures.

It helps those of us who are visual thinkers. :)

I just learned something new. Thank you for that!

Have a wonderful evening,

Hi Ilka,

There always seems to be something else to learn so how wonderful we can do this via reading blogs like yours.

I didn’t know you could choose certain friends to show like that. Awesome. Thanks so much for those tips.

Hi Marcus,

I know, seems like something new to learn about pops up every day. Don’t worry we’ll probably never figure ALL of it out. But a little trick here and there helps.

Glad I could teach you a new trick :)

Have an awesome day!

Hi Ilka,

Thank you for stopping by the Underdog Millionaire Blog yesterday. Just wanted to continue the conversation.

These little facebook tips are great. Sometimes it’s hard to find all of the little nuances that the software has to offer.

Hi Joshua,

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your thoughts!

I agree with you, it is hard to find out everything a particular software has to offer. Especially in the case of Facebook where changes are made almost on a daily basis.

Have an awesome day!

Ilka

P.S. Hope the Ash Cloud is gone by now.

Nice lil tip Ilka

When you and Twila do your “How To TwitBook” ebook, can I be an affiliate? 70% commission would be nice

Hi Dwayne,

You ALWAYS find a way to make me laugh. Of course you can be an affiliate. But 70% commission? Why not a 100%, LOL.

Have an awesome day!

Hi Ilka,

This is a secret weapon on Facebook and Twitter that can save lots of time.

I used to use it but have slacked off. Especially with Twitter.

Thanks for the tips, it is something anyone using social media should be aware of.

Hi Wayne,

Now, I would have never thought that little ol’ me could teach you a new trick. Are you just being nice?

But in any case, I’m glad I could :)

Have an awesome weekend, Wayne!

Hey Ilka,

I didn’t know about spotlighting friends before. Awesome tip!

If you and Twila do a JV book like that, I’d definitely be interested. ;)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Ilka

I do have a question for you. When you google someone (i.e. John Smith Facebook) and he pops-up are these instructions to show who you favorite friend are also? Sometimes I google myself and my list of friends seems to change sometimes. Just wondering if that is facebook/google rotating the friends or is it something I can set so the same group of friends are always displayed. Any help is appreciated :)

Hi Eric,

I am not quite sure about the first part of your question. But the instructions above are so the SAME list of friends are always displayed … unless you change it again and use a different list.

Does that make sense?

By the way, thank you so much for stopping by! It is very nice to meet you.

Have a wonderful day!

Ilka
