new column option for facebook allow filter based on friends lists
we've already filtered our facebook friends so that we only see certain streams...if we are to really use hootsuite for facebook we need the same listing ability that we currently have for our twitter client
Similar to Fan pages and groups but only for friends. Facebook's site allows you to show friend on the newsfeed, or not, I suggest you do the same.
it would be great if we could add the news feeds of lists by facebook, in the same way as we can add the lists of twitter, an idea for next update?
and if we can use message on facebook for retweets on fb, twitter etc
Would be nice if I could make lists for my Facebook contacts just like I can in Twitter. Also to have the ability to see when I last spoke to a contact in some sort of history
I don't want to have to look through my entire Facebook News Feed to see the people I actually care about. I already have a list of important people set up in Facebook, I want to add a stream of just that information like I can in TweetDeck
As of 1/2010 Facebook supports sharing with filters - when posting on Facebook.com, clicking on the lock icon near "Share" and then customizing the lock makes the shared item viewable to specified friend LISTS. This feature is very powerful - it allows accounts with a large number of followers to segment their posting, to target posts and to minimize the spam effect in their follower community.
We’re happy to let you know that you can filter streams by friends, however lists created in Facebook are not yet able to be pulled in through the API.
To create a filtered Facebook stream within HootSuite please refer to the following Help Desk article:
Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please let me know!
What is the status of this request?

I have a Twitter list and a Facebook list for co-workers, and would be great to have a single tab that shows all coworker-related activity. In summary, please add Facebook list support!
Any news on this at all ??? It is a massive pain in the butt that we can't do it ... instead of having one fabulous place to manage everything you still have to dip in and out of it !! PLEASE please please with a Cherry on top :) Can we add this in ?

Another vote. I'd like very much to be able to mix and match twitter and facebook lists in the same tab.
i need a stream option for facebook friends lists (like twitter lists).
so i can read news updates of my college friends in one column, and colleagues (i created as lists on facebook) separately in hootsuite.
3 votesworthy for me.

This feature is sorely lacking. It's the one thing I really like better about tweetdeck over hootsuite.

Bump. I hope you introduce this feature. Audience segmentation is key and the addition of Friend Lists support in Hootsuite would be very powerful.
I'm surprised this hasn't been voted higher. In my opinion this is essential. Currently my facebook stream is almost unusable because of all the clutter from distant friends and those stupid apps.

I heartily agree. Yoono can create lists for FB, but doesn't allow use of FB native friend lists. Without FB lists, there's too much noise. For now, I need to use Yoono for FB, but HS for Twitter, etc.
