I didn’t intend to write a post on this at first but seeing the comments on one of my previous posts, I had no choice but to come up with a post that solves this. Hiding your friends list on timeline is easy but you might find it hard a bit hard to figure out if you’re new to facebook timeline. There may be certains reasons best known to you that makes you want to hide your friends list and this post explains in clear terms how to get it done.
To hide your facebook friends list from your timeline,
- Go to your profile
-Click on your friends list
- On the next page, click the ‘Edit’ button at the top right. If nothing comes up, it simply means your network sucks. I had trouble trying to do it on a slow connection and nothing came up.
- As shown in the screenshot above, click on the ‘Lock‘ icon and select Only Me from the drop down menu.
- To check if your friends list is invisible to your friends and public, go to your profile and view your profile as one of your friends:
- Just type a friends name in the space provided and you’ll see your friends list is not appearing. I noticed that even with this, facebook still shows those friends you have in common but this is all that will be shown. Only mutual friends are visible and, of course, there’s no way to stop this from showing up for now.
If you’re still using the old facebook profile layout, you can only hide your friends list by checking this post. Another suggested reading is the post I previously wrote on how to limit or hide your facebook timeline completely.
