As the name recommends, Friend List Feeds enabled users to make redid feeds of updates from particular companions, in this manner influencing the whole perusing to encounter somewhat more customized.

In any case, Friend List Feeds never picked up the footing (which is the reason you most likely never found out about them, until today) that Facebook trusted it would.
