Now Hide your Facebook status from selected Lists – A new approach for More Status messages

facebookFacebook is a very popular social networking site and it has improved a lot to provide a Twitter type environment to its users. But users are not using status messages as they use for Twitter. Might be a reason for that was users were also using it to connect with their personal friends and they didn’t want to mess up their personal and professional life by updating status related to their profession or interest like posting news, updates etc. So this was preventing them to less update the status messages.

To solve this issue, Facebook recently added a new privacy feature for your status messages. Now you can select who can see your this update.
