    i have the timeline version. after i click see all i do not see an edit or find friends button anywhere. what the heck?

  • Pat Sloan

    I am on timeline and did the \’only me can see\”but when I asked a buddy to look.. she can still see my count. If I look without being a friend, no there a way to show NO COUNT when a friend looks?

      Hi Pat,

      Thanks for reading the article.

      When your friend looks at your list, do they see the profiles or just the count?


      • Pat Sloan

        thank you for getting back to me! she sees the friend list and she said the number of friends. But I’m wondering if the number she see’s is the number we have in common. I had someone else look and that is what they saw.. the number of friends in common between us

    Thanks for your post. I’m having a version of what a previous poster had –

    When I click “only me” for who can see my friends list, my friends can still see the total number of friends I have.

    It says “mutual friends” but the number is the total number of friends I have. Any idea how to get around this?

    Gaaaah – stupid facebook.

      Hi Liz, I have it set up the way it is listed here and my quantity of friends doesn’t show, only the quantity of mutual friends. But, if I understand you correctly, it is showing total number of friends for people looking at your Facebook profile?

        Hi Deborah,

        Yes, it shows the total number of friends. What it says is “mutual friends (120)” (120 is my total number of facebook friends) and then shows the pictures of the 3 or 4 people who are actually mutual friends. I want to hide that total number. Are you saying you don’t have the total number showing? If a person only has 3 mutual friends does it just say “mutual friends (3)”?

        Thanks for your help!

          Hi Liz. Yes, on mine, it only shows the quantity of mutual friends and not the total number of friends.

    i was wondering if there was away to hide just one friend, not the entire friend list from another friend? if so would you be able to tell me

      The best way to work with one-at-a-time situations is to use blocking. Otherwise, you could consider the option of keeping the entire list private, so that there are not “questions” pointed your direction and if you have another friend that wants to connect with someone you may know, connect them via PM or friend suggestion.

    Hey Deborah,
    Thanks for this useful piece of info.
    This setting is too difficult to find as it is not added to the default privacy setting on top right.
    This tutorial helps me a lot.
