How to Hide Your List of Friends on Facebook
Do you want to hide your list of friends from people in it? Since May 2010 Facebook offers again the possibility to stop showing them on your profile. This guide will show you how to do it.
Once you have logged in to Facebook, on the top right of the page, click on the Account tab and then select the "Privacy Settings" option, which is the one highlighted in the next image:
Once you have done this, in the area titled "Basic Directory Information," click on the link that says "View Settings," which is the one pointed by the arrow in the picture below:
Once you have done that, you will be directed to a new page with a list of items. In that list, near the middle of the screen, look for the item that says “See my friend list”. At the right side of this item you will see a button. Click on it and a menu will appear, in which you will have to select 'Customize.' Then you will see a window with a drop-down list near a label that says “These people.” In that list, select 'Only Me,' and finally click on the button that says 'Save Setting.'
Keep in mind that, although your list of friends will not appear on your profile, there are still other ways in which people can see it, such as by using an application. This is because in December 2009 Facebook declared that all users' lists of friends are public information
