Facebook’s status update box is getting a new feature called Lists, which begins rolling out today.
This is the first major update to the entry field since the launch of colored backgrounds just over a year ago, and also serves as a way to encourage Facebook users to share more personal content.
The feature, like it sounds, lets users make lists of anything they choose – New Year’s Resolutions, To Do’s, restaurants to try, travel ideas, and more.
The lists are also designed with the idea that friends could copy each other’s lists to share their own opinions about the subject at hand.
The feature is not yet broadly available, as it’s a slow global rollout starting today, we understand.
The addition appears as a part of the “What’s on your mind?” (status update) box as another option alongside things like Polls, Feeling/Activity, Photo/Video, Check In, GIF, and other items.
