Annoyed with so many friends buzzing around you? Need privacy? Well, here’s how you can achieve just what you need.

Follow the Steps:

1. Log into your Facebook account and locate the “Friends” tab in the left sidebar.

Edit <b>Facebook</b> Friends List

2. This is meant to take you to the “Find Friends” page where you can import the contacts list from Gmail, Yahoo, Windows Live messenger and so on. Now, ignore all these crap and click the “Edit Friends” link.

Edit Facebook Friends

3. Now you will get a pop up window, click on “Create a List”. Enter a customized name such as “offline list” or “Ignored Contacts”

Always offline Selected

4. This works vice-versa. You also can take a positive approach creating an an “Online contacts” list instead of an Off-line one. Rest is as simple as this. Choose the list you want and turn it “ON”, keeping every other list as “OFF”.

Selection of list should vary according to majority count if you want to chat with whole lot of people then, go for Offline list to ignore the few unwanted personas.

5. Once the list has been prepared, add the friends whom you want to get rid of by clicking the profile thumbnails in the browser overlay window.

Once finished with the selection of all the friends, click the “Create List” button. Don’t worry you can manage this list, add more people to this list or remove existing friends from the list from “Friends -> Edit Friend” lists.

6. So, now you can finally open the Facebook chat box placed at the right bottom of your browser and a new list is there waiting for you. Check out with the pic.
