Users can create any bulleted or numbered list they want and change its color or add emoji.

Facebook's status update box is getting a new feature called Lists, which begins rolling out today. The first major update of its kind in over a year, Lists comes as Facebook tries to get more people to share personal content instead of viral videos and news article.

For now, the list feature is only available for users on Android. iPhone users will be able to view lists but can't create them yet.
