In a new video, Xbox Live's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb detailed the way Xbox One's friends list will work. In addition to all the features we're using now like seeing what your friends are doing and their achievements, the Xbox One includes new social opportunities.

In addition to friends, you'll be able to follow people. These individuals will be added to your activity feed, and you'll be able to see when they upload new videos. Should two people follow each other, they'll automatically be considered "friends." For privacy purposes, you can disallow your account to be followed.

There is also a new favorites option. This allows you to tag friends for a more exclusive list. This way, you'll have easier access to those people you play with most often.

You can also snap the activity feed to the side of the screen. If you're playing and waiting for a friend to come online or start a specific game (or just want to jump into what they are playing), you can see it easily without leaving your game. For more on Xbox One matchmaking, click here.

As I was going up the stairs I met a man who wasn't there. He wasn't there again today. I wish, I wish he'd go away.
