The first major update of its kind in over a year, Lists comes as Facebook tries to get more people to share personal content instead of viral videos and news article. Of course, you could always manually create lists, but this new tool packages your opinions up in one tidy colorful graphic.
The tweaks are largely created to encourage people to interact with more content on the site and share more information about themselves, which Facebook will be able to use to sell more ads. The feature is not available to all users at the moment as it just started rolling out globally this week, but should be making its way to your account soon.
(Web Desk) - Facebook launched a new update called Lists by which users can personalise the status box as it gives several options like bullet points, additional colours and designs.
Once you receive the update, you can access Lists by pressing on "What's on your mind" to post your status.

As for why the gymnast chose to be a part of the project , she told Sports Illustrated she found the concept remarkably empowering.
According to Tech Crunch, the new feature allows users to update their status with a personalized list with a colorful background.
Facebook changed its algorithm earlier this year to "prioritize posts that spark conversations and meaningful interactions between people" while demoting public posts from businesses and publishers. A recent eMarketer report indicates that Facebook lost approximately 2.8 million US users aged under 25 years in 2017. According to a report from eMarketer this week, Facebook lost approximately 2.8 million U.S. users under 25 in 2017, and will lose around 2.1 million more this year.
There is no set date for when the new lists update will be completely rolled out. But when it does, you'll be able to create lists that can be personalized with different colors and emoji and organized via bullet points or numbers.
The goal with features like these is to push users to post more personal updates - like stories about their lives, what they're up to, and what they're thinking. Unlike many online publications, we don't have a paywall or run banner advertising, because we want to keep our journalism open, without influence or the need to chase traffic.
