You might be wondering – what are lists, and how should I be using them?
An excellent question indeed.
Quite simply, lists are the way to organize your network into groups. Likely, you’ll use them to segment into various industries as I have (screenshot to right). Of course, you can use them however you’d like. I shouldn’t have to scan my entire network of connections just to find the locations of the real estate or social entrepreneur contacts I truly care about.
The next evolution of lists?
Enabling you to add people to lists without following them (this is how I use lists on Twitter). If you have other ideas in terms of how we can make lists more useful to you, please do let us know – either via our feedback form or in the comments here.
