How to Create Custom Facebook Lists

I have to thank @GimmieFreebies for making this awesome post. I wanted to make sure my readers see it in case you are missing the Sweeties Sweeps fan page in your Facebook stream. This would also go for the Sweeties Freebies page.

Don’t you just hate it when big businesses dictate how you use things? I get it that they own the site and we don’t pay to use it but really? You are just going to blatantly change things without asking the people who use your site? As Captain Hook would say, “Bad Form!”
