It will be a part of the "What's on you're mind?" box as an option alongside things such as polls, photo/video, live, GIF, and more. Facebook envisions users sharing their top five food cravings, goals for the year, and plans for upcoming trips through the new feature, which is created to spark conversations with your friends.

Your list can be about anything - your schedule for the day, places you would like to visit or New Year's resolutions, for instance.

As the name implies this is a very straightforward feature, where users can now post a list of things as a status update. Interestingly, users can also add coloured backgrounds and Emojis to the Lists. Lists reportedly also allows friends to copy a particular list as well as comment on the subject mentioned in the list. With this feature, Facebook will be able to fill up the users' news feed with what their friends are thinking or up to in their lives. According to Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg, the company's priority this year is to make sure the site is "good for people's well-being", though he has conceded that this change may mean users spend less time on the platform.

In order to use the Lists feature, users need to update the Facebook app on their smartphones.
