How To Hide Your Facebook Friends List From Showing On Your Facebook Profile

Yes, hiding friends list from displaying on your Facebook profile is possible. And here, i will show you exactly how you can hide your Facebook friends list from showing on your Facebook profile page.

For some being able to hide their number of friends from showing on their profile page is important. I can understand that. For a lot of us who often like to keep some things personal, this is often important.

You do not want someone stumbling on your profile and seeing how many friends you have except you are doing it for some business reasons.

Personally, if i should check out your Facebook profile and i realize you have a few thousands of friends on the platform, i most likely will not add you up. Reason being that you’ve got too many friends already.

I mean, there is a chance you probably will not notice my existence. You probably will not even see my posts because you have too many of them to deal with already.

Now, that is just me. There could be lots of people out there with same mindset. For this reason (except you are using your account for some business purpose), it’s probably a better idea to turn this option OFF. Keep them guessing.

Do you also know that the number of friends you have could make an unknown person either send you a friend request on Facebook or simply remove you from their friends list?

Yes, it is possible and it solely depends on what the Facebook user is actually looking for.

You can hide your number of Facebook friends on mobile or computer, depending on the platform(device) you’re using.
