Facebook is aiming to make life easier for users who don't want to share everything they post with every one of their friends.

Taking a page from Google Plus, Facebook is helping users better manage their friends.

The new "smart lists" feature, which starts Wednesday, automatically sorts your friends into groups such as work, school or how close they live to you.

It makes it easier to share photos and links with smaller, isolated groups of people.
