Step # 7- Adding a new list

As each list you have created in the previous steps had a name, you always need a name to identify the list of friends. To do so, type a “list name” according to your choice.

Step # 8- Editing name and change privacy settings

In social networks we obviously need privacy settings to make our content private or public. The similar case applies to the friend’s list. Once you are done with assigning a name to your new list, choose its privacy settings and click on the option titled “done” to apply changes.

Step # 10: Deleting a list

Well let’s say you don’t want to keep a specific list anymore. So, in this case you need to delete a list, click on the “pen symbol” located beside the list name. Select the “delete list” and it will be almost done. Deletion of a list doesn’t mean that all the friends in that list will be deleted from your account. It’s just like disassociating some members from a group.
