One of those changes deals with the way that a Facebook user can hide his or her Facebook friends list from friends or other people on Facebook Timeline.

Facebook users now have complete control over the visibility of their friends list. You can choose to display your friends list to the public, only your friends, just yourself or a specific “custom” group of people.

How to Hide Your Facebook Friends List on Timeline:

  1. On your Facebook profile page, click on the “friends” box at the top of your profile.
  2. On your Facebook friends page, click on the grey “edit” button at the top right of the page.
  3. Click on the drop-down list that appears and selected your desired visibility. If you want to be the only one with access to your friends list, choose “only me“.
