Updated on July 5, 2011

Lists and Stages of Life

You may probably have a lot of friends and you have connected with them via Facebook. There are different stages of life. Some friends are close enough that they stay together with us a long period of life, but most people and friends comes in and moves out of our life time to time in these different stages of life. They go somewhere else for a different work, for a different reason and we do the same, and thus the contact with our old friends, partners breaks. Facebook is the most powerful medium to bring this lost contact back and make us all to stay connected together for a lifetime. You can manage all these contacts according to how they came into your life by creating a Facebook List. You can create a list for each stage of life, a list including persons along with you in that stage. You can create lists like primary school friends, school friends, college friends, junior college friends, office friends and brothers etc. etc. A list of any group of people similar to you in some manner.
