I have seen some very interesting patterns on the Facebook friends tab. It seems as though there is some sort of pattern in terms of date added or perhaps friends with similar social connections. Does anyone know what the sorting methodology for the "All Friends" tab within the "Friends" tab may be?

I used to think that it was something along the lines of age of a friendship, but now I'm no longer convinced of this.

Here is an image to help illustrate the question better as per request: enter image description here

  • Can you add some screenshots because I have no clue what you are talking about with "associative location" – phwd Dec 29 '15 at 17:39
  • @phwd let me know if that helps. – ylluminate Dec 29 '15 at 17:51
  • Are you referring to the order friends appear in. Just my speculation, but I've always assumed it to be based off who you've been interacting with the most. – jamesmstone May 6 '16 at 7:19
