So yesterday I signed up on Facebook for the very first time due to all my friends bugging me about getting on there. The look is quite a bit different to MySpace but what disappointed me the most was the privacy settings. I discovered that you really can't block your friends list, even if you designate it to Friends Only. I was able to go through my high school graduating class and see everyone's friends and that was a big turn off. Am I off my rocker here or is this correct?

Hmmmm, that's an interesting question. I have my settings private, but never considered hiding my friends list from my other friends. I guess I didn't really see a reason for it, but I see your master googling skills found the answer! Good to know.

Facebook has really stepped up their privacy recently. I have been on it since college, so when all of my colleagues just started joining, I decided that I needed some privacy from them (not that I do things online that I wouldn't want them to see - but I don't want my friends to make inside jokes on my wall that may seem inappropriate to the GM of my organization, if you know what I mean).

 

You can go through and set things that you don't want specific people to see, like your pictures, wall, status updates - pretty much everything.

 

I like facebook better than myspace because it seems easier to navigate and safer, but it is odd to me to hear all the talk about it now, when I have been on it for like 5 years now! wink.gif

 

Good luck.

I have blocked people from being able to see my friends list...if you go in to the privacy settings > profile, there is a drop down menu beside "friends" and you can select your secuirty options from there. I have mine set to only friends can see my friends list and I blocked one person from seeing it altogether. This should work, I tested it with my FI's account first just to make sure it did. I hope this helps!

you can totally block people - you need to explore the settings more!

I want to apologize if the little danasoft penguin on my signature scared anyone. All it was doing was recording your IP address as your computer loaded the image and then displayed your information back to you. I was in no way recording, tracking or stalking any of your IP addresses or information, it was just something you saw. It was originally meant as a crude joke but I can see how some of you would have been thrown off by it. So again, I apologize if that alarmed anyone.

You can't block other from viewing your friends list though. I went onto my high school grad class and I could view everyone's friends list even though I couldn't view some of their profiles.

Thank you for removing your siggy...

 

Regarding the friends profile thing, you can view it on your friends perhaps because they haven't changed the privacy settings. Like you changed it so when someone finds you, they can't view your friends list, but other people probably have not made that same change.

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
