Facebook wants users to post fewer viral videos and share more about themselves.
That's the message it seems to be sending with a new feature called 'Lists' that's rolling out to some Facebook users starting on Tuesday.
Name - Tool - Users - Post - Lists
Like the name suggests, the tool lets users post numbered to-do lists, travel wishlists, how-to lists and bucket lists, among other things.
