Finally, it seems Facebook will solve the missing piece of Facebook. Though details are not public yet, Facebook has added two new api calls — “friends.getLists” and “friends.getListsMembers”. I think it means Facebook will be adding a way for me to group my friends — hopefully, a “newsfeed” for each group is part of this new friendlist feature they are working on. Mashable wonders if these calls are an attempt to compete against linkedin and slide — I don’t think so. Personally, I think Facebook saw a weakness in their platform and this is the fix.

As Fred says, fixing problems is the way to build a great company — Facebook is definitely on the right track.
