Facebook Tutorial – How to Hide Your Facebook Friends List

I know that learning how to hide your Facebook friends list sounds a bit paranoid, however, we really need to start thinking about our privacy. There are many good reasons why you should hide your Facebook friends list from public viewing. One important reason is that by showing your friends list, you could be putting your Facebook friends at risk from identity theft. You might be calling me paranoid right now, but really this is happening all the time!

On the other hand you should be asking your friends to hide their friends lists to keep your identity safe. Did you know that Facebook is incorporating Facial recognition software into their system. This means a stranger can match a photo of you to your name.
