    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.
    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.

          Would any of you recommend setting up a dummy account so I could test the security of my profile?

            Yes!!! I don't have a dummy account but I use my FI's account to test all of my secuirty settings. It's been very helpful and now I know that everything works the way I want it to!

              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.

                  Really? That IS interesting! I had no idea, thanks for the heads up! :)

                    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?
