How to Hide Your Friends List on The New Facebook Timeline

I decided to write on how to hide your friend list on Facebook because some of us would like to keep their Facebook friends list private for reasons best known to them. A lot of people have been using this feature already but if you don’t know about it yet, then this post is for you.

One thing I like about Facebook is that they keep tweaking their users interface so as to give their Facebook users total control of their Facebook account so that they can use Facebook and still keep their private life hidden from the public.

Before we proceed, I will like you to know that even though it’s possible to hide your friends list from other Facebook users, I don’t think it’s possible to hide mutual friends from the person viewing your profile because if you have friends in common with anybody viewing your profile, they may still see mutual friends but others may remain hidden.

Follow these simple steps below to hide your friends list on Facebook new timeline.

1. Visit your Facebook timeline and click on friends below your cover picture.

2. At the top right corner of your friends list, you will see the edit (pencil) button, click on it and a drop down menu will be displayed.

3. Select EDIT PRIVACY from the drop down menu.

4. Clicking on EDIT PRIVACY will display a pop up box. From the pop up box you can now set your friends list privacy to ONLY ME.

Congratulation, you have just made your list of friends to appear to only you.
