I have a Facebook account to communicate with family and friends, but I don’t necessarily want much information out there. I know I can restrict information from showing to friends only, friends of friends, etc., but I haven’t been able to figure this one out yet.
Is there a setting that will prevent me from showing up on someone else’s friends list? For example, let’s say I am friends with Bob. Bob has his settings configured so that anyone can see who his friends are. Will my name show up on that list, or is there a setting on my end that will prevent me from showing up on his friends list to the outside world?
It’s not a huge issue, but there are some friends of friends who I would prefer to not be reminded of my existence. They can’t really see anything about me (such as contact info), so again, not that big of an issue, I was just wondering if there was a way to hide myself from them. It seems that, short of creating a page with a ficticious name, the answer is no.
I think you can set your profile picture to be Friends Only. That way your friends will see the image but anyone else will get the generic image template. You’ll still appear on the friends list regardless, but it be just your name.
I wasn’t sure if Blocking works on other people’s pages, but if it does, then this would work. You can block people on your profile and see if that removes them when they look at a 3rd person’s friend list.
