Anyone familiar with the settings in the Fishbowl Facebook client?

I downloaded this experimental Microsoft app because of one of its features,
'Interest Level', but can't figure out how to use it.
For anyone who may be interested, the feature apparently enables sorting
Facebook friends according to your level of interest in them, so you can save
time by getting the ones you're currently most interested in ls.at the top of
the list. It only affects your own view, and your friends won't know about
it (so no offence caused). It sounds especially useful for people with many
friends. Fishbowl will go direct to Facebook from the desktop, independant
of browsers.
I can see 'Interest level' all right, as one of the options for sorting
friends, but can't find how to set their levels. Google came up with some
descriptions of what the app does, and videos about some features, but not
this one.
Any ideas?

No. I am not familiar and this issue has nothing to do with Vista. Contact Facebook

Thanks Peter, but there seemed to me to be some connection, in that this
Fishbowl app. was written by Microsoft, for use in Windows, as described on
its download page (it doesn't seem possible to paste the link here, but I
found it at www.pcadvisor.co.uk by clicking on 'Downloads', & putting
'Facebook' in the search box there).

'For Facebook' was my attempt to distinguish it from virtual aquariums of
the same name (within the confines of the thread title). It does enable some
discrimination about what one sees at the Facebook site, but asking Facebook
would be like asking LinkedIn how to set preferences in Internet Explorer.

As a Vista user, this was the only Microsoft forum I could find that wasn't
obviously the wrong one. The app's namesakes make a general web search a
challenge, and if this is the wrong forum I'd be grateful if anyone could
point me to the right one (or move this thread to it).

Meanwhile, is there anyone here who has tried this app?

I found the answer, plus some other info about Fishbowl, which is all in a
forum thread elsewhere. If anyone's interested, they can find it in the
Helproom forum at pcadvisor.co.uk, by entering "Fishbowl" in the search box.
(I can't paste anything here, which I assume is forum policy, but apologies
if it's my error).
