That would be nice but if you go through your grad class, haven't you noticed how on the left side it shows their photo and name, then on the right side it gives you the option to add them as a friend and then view their friends? It shows the view friends thing for everybody! I would have thought that at least someone would block their friends list to someone who wasn't their friend (that being me).

You can definitely set your profile to where people can't view your "Friends" list:

Go to: "Settings", then choose "Privacy Settings". From there, choose "Manage" under the privacy heading. THEN, go to "Search"...from there you can choose what kind of setting you want people to see when they search you. Make sure that "My Friend's List" is not clicked. This will prevent anyone (but yourself) from seeing your friends list.

 

....I hope that wasn't too confusing......

No, I definitely appreciate your help with this, with my experience on there...I just wasn't too sure you could do that. I'll have to reactivate my account and try it again.

Will do. I'll try that out and let you know how it turns out.

I just found an interesting fact about Facebook today. Apparently when you send someone who isn't a friend a message, or if they send one and you happen to respond, they can see your profile for 30 days....no matter what your privacy settings are setup for.

They can't see anything that other people wouldn't see. Also, you can add them to your limited profile list if you wish.

Yeah they can, I've tested it with another profile. They can see a lot of your basic information, who you're married to, what pages you're a fan of, etc. What's a limited profile list?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
