go to 'Settings in the upper right of your Facebook screen.
click 'Privacy', and then click 'Manage'. Click 'Profile'
look for the box that reads 'Friends' drop the arrow down, click 'Customize,' then a box will appear "Who can see this" click friends only, then type in ALL names in the 'Except' box to block those people.
note: i have not tried it but the settings allow you to see what your friends see - so that will show you if it works the way you are wanting it to or not.
omg your amazing thank you so much...
When I try to follow those instructions, I don't have a "friends" setting in profile. Help???
The settings have changed at facebook and now the whole world gets to see your friends - NO WAY to make it private anymore. Po'd.
click on your facebook name, top right hand side. This will bring up your wall, info, settings, etc and will show your picture, information and friends. Look at your friends section and you will see what looks like a pencil, click on that and it will bring up a box. Uncheck the box that says "show friend list to everyone" Only you and your friends will be able to see your friends list.
does not hide them from your other friends. only hides them from non-friends. so it only helps half way.
facebook’s own guidelines are inaccurate. specifically, when they say “your friend list is always visible to you and your friends,” this is very misleading!
if I check the privacy box, my friends are concealed: not only from strangers, but from EVERYONE. only MUTUAL friends can be seen by my friends, via “see all,” on my profile. (one exception: the 6/9/12 friends pictured remain visible]
this is not just a quirk with my account. I have around 200 friends; most of them allow me to see their entire friends list, but more than one of them have friend lists that, when I click on "see all" on their friend list, only reveal MUTUAL friends. eg--one friend has 923 friends; only our 23 mutual friends appear when I try to "See all".
the problem with the current situation, obviously, is if you want to keep strangers from looking through your friend list, you can only do so by also keeping your friends from doing so!
Thank you so much you help me a lotttt
yh thnks babes...this was needed...to many stalkers
