    How to filter contact list in Windows Phone 8?

    Whenever I add an account to my Windows Phone 8, the contact list will be synced with the system automatically. Contacts from many accounts such as Facebook will clutter the contact list of the phone. How can I manage my contact list by filtering unwanted contacts?

    In your Windows Phone 8, just swipe the screen to the left to access the app list. Then launch the People app from there. Open the menu button by tapping on the three dots icon. From menu choose the settings icon by tapping on it. In the settings page, just tap on the ‘filter my contact list’ option. This will let you access all the contacts that have synced to your phone. Then put a check mark against the accounts which you want to hide contacts from the list. When you are done, just tap on the check button at the bottom of the screen to save changes. Then go back to the People’s contact list and review the changes.
