Facebook prompts users to add close friends

CloseFriends

Facebook utilized the space above News Feed for some users to remind them to utilize the close friends feature. Through this, a designated group of close friends’ updates will be more likely to show up in News Feed.

The prompt, which states, “Don’t Miss the Good Stuff,” can be closed and is completely optional. Within the redesigned News Feed, Facebook also gives the option for a close friends feed, showing all posts from those the user has designated as such. Facebook has had the close friends feature since 2011, but is apparently trying to remind users that it’s still around. The site occasionally prompts users to participate in this feature.

Readers: Do you use the close friends feature?
