One of the new changes to facebook that is the most awesome yet, is creating a "close friends" list. On the left of your facebook screen are your lists.  There is one with a star that says close friends.  The purpose of this list is two fold. 1. for people who have never set up lists it is an easy intro to list creation 2. for people who never want to miss things from certain people.  The members of this list generate a notification when they post anything: This is perfect if you don't want to miss anything y... read more
