How to keep your Facebook friend list private: As you may have already known, by default, Facebook keeps your friends list public and visible to every other Facebook user but you’ve got the choice of hiding it from other Facebook friends. Let’s see how to hide friends list from Facebook friends.
Now, a user has control on almost everything in their profile (e.g. status, photos, albums etc). The user also has the control of how they want to share material (e.g. with everyone, friends, friends of friends, etc). Users can even manually hide a status from specific people.
If you don’t want strangers to see your friend list, then you can just hide it from them. It’s very easy. You can use the enhanced Facebook privacy settings to modify your friend list’s visibility.
One thing which I have noticed when you keep your friend list public is that many people see that list and start adding friends blindly.
And seeing common friends, other friends usually accept the friend request. It’s kind of embarrassing when your female friend informs you that some mutual friend of yours has sent her a friend request.
It’s better to let your friend list be visible only to you and hidden from others.
