Facebook: How to follow/receive status updates from only some of the friends

I have a few hundred friends on Facebook and it's difficult to find status updates from people I really want to follow. Is it possible to receive status updates from selected friends in email? If not, is it possible to filter status updates on Facebook and see only certain friends' statuses?

What I do is create different lists of friends in Facebook. Then I can click on the list if I only want to see status updates from people in that list. For example, I have a list of work friends, family, friends from college, etc. To create a friend list in Facebook:
When you have your list created you'll see it under Friends in the left nav (click Friends if you don't see it listed right away). When you click the list name you'll only see status updates from friends on that list.
Here's another way to see and manage all of your friend lists:
I don't think there is an option to receive status updates from friends in email.
Hope this helps!
