How to Promote Friends on Your Feed in Facebook

The Facebook news feed streams stories about all of your contacts' activities on the social network. If you want to promote certain friends on your feed, add them to your "Close Friends" list. Facebook typically displays only a few posts from each friend in your feed, but it posts stories about every action your close friends perform. For example, to keep tabs on the activity of certain sales prospects, add each of them to your Close Friends list. You can also view each Facebook user's activity by viewing the person's Timeline.

    Click the "Friends" link in the sidebar on your Facebook homepage.

  2. 2.

    Click "Close Friends," which is the first list on the page that displays.

  3. 3.

    Type the name of the friend you want to promote in the "Add to this list" box. Select the name from the drop-down menu.

    Click the "Notifications" button in the upper right corner of the browser window.
