A guide to help you understand how Facebook’s privacy settings work and to help you use them in order to keep your friends list private.

There are two reasons you might want to keep your Facebook friends list private. One is that you don’t want your personal life to have any possibility of impacting your professional life at all and the other is that you are personally sensitive about your privacy and know that there is a chance someone will figure out who you are on Facebook.

Facebook has different privacy settings for posts and pictures, which means you can have a picture that is private but your posts are public. Every time you change your privacy settings on Facebook, all of the pictures and posts will be updated with the guidelines that you set.

You can also upload a photo or text as a ‘story’ on Facebook which will only be visible to specific people or everyone depending on what they see.
