How To Hide Your Facebook Friends in 3 Clicks

Quick tip of the day.

A friend recently asked me how to remove their “Friend List” from their Facebook profile because sometimes you just want the privacy of who is your friend and not have others cruising through who you are networked with.

Here is a quick picture of how you can remove your Facebook friend list from showing on your profile page.

1. Start on your main “Friends” page. It is the page that shows all your friends, pretty straight forward :)

2. Click on the “Edit” button in the top corner

3. Select “Only Me” in the drop down box. Of course, you can customize this to a certain friend list if you want as well. The trick here is that if you have the setting set to “Public” then anyone that stumbles across your profile will be able to see all your connections as well. That’s a bit too much information circulating out there for my personal taste.

4. Click “Close” and you are done.

As you can see, this takes a matter of less than 5 minutes but gives you another layer of privacy customization.
