Avoid posting annoying statuses to everybody
Facebook bought many games to the users. These games are fun to the user but they make to post a lot of trash statuses to our wall. If those are shared with everyone , the person who doesn't need them feel annoyed. So, create a list of friends who are playing the game as something like farmville (if farmville player) and share the status to post by choosing farmville from the list and the status is shared to only the farmville friends.
View the News Feed instantly
When you login to the facebook at the home tab you see lot of news feed statuses from all the friends who shared them, its difficult to find particular persons feed. Go to Most Recent feed items and choose the list which you need to read.
Be offline for some of the friends in chat
There would be a situation where you need to hide yourself from some people online. If you have created a list of friends it would be easy to hide yourself from particular people in the chat. In the chat window of facebook select the list to which you need to be offline and hit a small green button at the right of the list. You will be offline to that list and not to entire facebook chat.
