Facebook is one of the most popular social networking platforms that allow you to connect with your friends, family, and colleagues. However, there may be times when you want to keep your friends list private, or hide certain friends from others. Fortunately, Facebook offers a way to do just that. In this blog, we’ll go over how to hide friends on Facebook, step-by-step.
1. Go to your Facebook profile
To hide your friends on Facebook, you’ll first need to go to your Facebook profile. You can do this by logging in to your Facebook account and clicking on your name in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
2. Click on the “Friends” tab
Once you’re on your profile, you’ll see a menu underneath your cover photo that includes options like “Timeline,” “About,” and “Friends.” Click on the “Friends” tab to view your friend list.
3. Choose which friends to hide
Next, you’ll need to choose which friends you want to hide from your friend list. To do this, hover your mouse over the friend’s name and click on the three dots that appear on the right-hand side of their name.
4. Click “Edit Friend List”
When you click on the three dots, a drop-down menu will appear. From there, click on “Edit Friend List.”
5. Create a new friend list
Once you’ve clicked “Edit Friend List,” a new window will appear that allows you to create a new friend list. You can name this list whatever you want, such as “Hidden Friends.”
6. Add friends to your new list
After you’ve created your new friend list, you can start adding friends to it. To do this, simply check the box next to their name and click “Done.”
7. Adjust your privacy settings
Once you’ve added friends to your new list, you’ll need to adjust your privacy settings so that only you can see this list. To do this, go to your Facebook settings and click on “Privacy” in the left-hand menu. From there, click on “Edit” next to “Who can see your friend list?” and select “Only me.”
And that’s it! Your selected friends will now be hidden from your friend list, and only you will be able to see them. Keep in mind that this process only hides your friends list from other Facebook users – your hidden friends will still be able to see each other and interact with each other on Facebook.
- You can create multiple friend lists and adjust your privacy settings for each one.
- If you want to hide your entire friend list, you can change the privacy setting for your entire friend list to “Only me” in your Facebook settings.
- Be aware that hiding friends on Facebook may not be foolproof, as some information may still be visible to certain people depending on their settings. It’s always a good idea to be mindful of what you share on social media platforms.
Hiding friends on Facebook is a simple process that can be completed in just a few steps. By creating a new friend list and adjusting your privacy settings, you can choose which friends to hide from your friend list and keep them private from other Facebook users. It’s important to remember that this process only hides your friends list from others – your hidden friends will still be able to see each other and interact with each other on Facebook. As with any social media platform, it’s always a good idea to be mindful of what you share and to regularly review your privacy settings to ensure that you are comfortable with who can see your information.
