Did you now you can clear the noise in the Facebook newsfeed and Facebook can help you with it?
The service is a bit of a secret, there's no way of reaching it but to go directly to this address: facebook.com/friends/organize
The tool is very simple: it tells you who are the friends you are not interacting with and add them to the acquaintances list, therefore showing them less on your timeline.
I like the choice of words: "less" does not mean "ever".
As easy as that. Select the friends and add them to the acquaintances list to clean your Facebook newsfeed.
Have a good Newsfeed cleaning!
I feel I must add here that the best way to have a nice and wonderful NewsFeed with only people you really care about is of course creating different customs lists, based on interests. For example I have a list "Best" with 105 friends and it's the list where I can see everything my best friends have shared on Facebook.
Creating custom Facebook lists is a more complicated process and takes some time to do, so we save it for another blog that doesn't have "one simple step" in the title.
