               friends becoming fans of something, and some application messages they can still be hidden

              installing the Facebook Purity add-on.

              Click Account in the top right corner of the Facebook window and then click Privacy settings

            to adjust who is capable of seeing what on your Facebook profile. We highly recommend going

         notification of how many friends are waiting for approval. This icon can also be clicked

          when you want to view any friend recommendations or search for friends on Facebook.

*Messages - This section allows you to send and receive private messages between one or more

                    people you're friends with.

*Notifications - Any time a friend or Facebook application creates a new post you'll be

                notified in this section. Clicking this icon will show all recent notifications. If you wish

               to change what is capable of sending you notifications including any Facebook applications

               or games click the See All Notifications link at the bottom and check or uncheck what you

              want to be notified on.

*Search - Finally, the search box in Facebook can be a powerful tool that can be used to

                 quickly find any current friends or people on Facebook. In addition searching for terms such

                  as a company name, product, sports team, music band, etc. will find fan pages and groups

                     that can be joined.

         Keep your e-mail and your cell phone clean by updating or eliminate Facebook notifications

         or keep more up-to-date by adding new notifications. Facebook notifications can be added and

                 removed by clicking Account link in the top right corner, then Account Settings, and then

                 clicking the Notifications tab.

*Top News and Most Recent


          By default Facebook will display your wall postings in the News format, which means it only

               displays posts it believes are most relevant to you. These results are based on your past

             interaction with your friends. If you want to see every post made by all your friends that

               are not hidden click the Most recent link in the upper right section of your news feed as

                   shown in the above picture example.

                  If you want to adjust who shows up manually click the Edit Options in the bottom right

                     corner of your news feed.

                    Facebook unhide friends

*View High School work friends

              If you've added your High School or previous Work locations to your profile, quickly see all

             classmates and co-workers on Facebook by clicking the link in your Info tab under your


*Quickly change profile picture

             Your profile picture can be quickly changed to any other picture by visiting your profile,

               hovering the mouse over your current profile picture, and clicking the Change Picture link

               that appears in the top right corner of the picture.

                Don't post private information on friend's walls on in comments

               When you make a post on a friend's wall or in any of their comments realize that any of

                their friends are going to be able to see that post. If you wish for something to remain

                 only between you and a friend send them a Facebook message instead.

*Suggestions and random friend invites

            As you get more friends on Facebook it will begin making friend, groups, and fan

          suggestions. These are suggestions made by Facebook and not your friends. Unless these are

            something you're interested in they can be ignored.

           This same rule can be applied to people who may want to be your friend that you don't know.

          If you don't know someone don't accept his or her friend invite. Once someone becomes your

            friend they'll have access to any information your friends are capable of seeing.

*Tag your Facebook friends in your photos

         Always make sure to tag any of your Facebook friends that are in pictures you upload.

         However, never tag someone who is not in the picture. When someone is tagged in a photo that

         picture is automatically added to that persons profile and is a great way to share pictures

        with all friends.
