Friend Manager Lets You Manage Facebook Friends

The most hard part a user come across while using Facebook is to decide whether who exactly be the people in his/her friend list going to see the content on your timeline. It is certainly very hard to decide and often not considered as very user-friendly experience. Fortunately, we finally have an app to control all that.

Former Blip.tv CEO and current Facebook Product Manager, Mike Hudack comes up with a solution in the form of an app named Friend Manager. This app allows you drag and drop friends into three different buckets: Regular Friends, Close Friends and Acquaintances. With your hands-on app, you will now be able to have a firm hold on how to handle the friends list feature on your Facebook profile.

Just identical to what Google+ has made ‘privacy’ a second thought with its Circles feature, Facebook friend lists expects to do the same. It is quite a confusing experience until present time, but Friend Manager makes it little more convenient. Despite the fact that Hudack works at Facebook, the app is still unofficial.

At the instance you start using the app; all of your friends will be loaded into the ‘Regular Friends or Close Friends bucket. The second bucket will automatically be generated by Facebook depending on your usage.

At the moment you begin dragging and dropping friends, you will see that an additional bucket named ‘Acquaintances’ will appear as an option under friends, particularly when you are about to update your status as shown in the image below:

Of course, it is a visual approach that the social networking giant needs to accept and integrate as a part of its friends list functionality. We have already experienced the simplicity and smooth process of sliding people in or out of Circles in Google+. Friend Manager does something similar to the approach used by Google in its social platform.
