Tip & How-To about Facebook Social Network

Facebook Privacy Settings

2 Loopholes in Facebook Privacy

1) It is very important to remember that whatever you post on other people's Walls are visible to all the friends of that person. So your Facebook profile may be viewable only to your friends, but if you post something scandalous on a friend's Wall, that is going to be visible to that friend's friends, even if you're not friends with that person.

2) Did you know that by default, your profile is viewable by friends in your NETWORK? This network may be regional (like San Francisco, CA), which makes it visible to a lot more people than you can imagine.

So make sure you know exactly who can see your profile, photos, and comments, before you post something you'll regret!

Why can't my friend see my facebook posts

As Nitin stated, you could have blocked one another and forgotten about it or there is one more thing, have you sent and accepted friendship request to each other? Hopefully, it is something that simple. Good luck!

I cannot post to the wall of my friends in facebook. such as pictures, videos or comments

HiThis is not a problem of your facebook account at all, this is their account settings that are blocking pictures, videos or comments from their friends. In order for them to receive anything from you, you will have to inbox them and ask them to change their privacy settings.Have a great day !! :)

other people posting abuse about me on there walls how bo i remove this

Hi, please click on the Account option of the Facebook and select Privacy Settings> Customize Settings>Uncheck the Friends can post on my Wall option. Now even your friends can't post on your Wall.

If you want other friends to post on your wall then, please delete the person who is abusing you by posting on your wall. In this way only Friends can post on your wall.

how to send scrap in facebook. This social networking website not better then the orkut so please take the scrap option in facebook. I know . you are saying me you were use the orkut .

Facebook has two messaging steps other than chat.
wall post: Goto ur friends profile and write in the box. This is called wall posting.Its visible to all ur friends unless u change privacy settings
message: goto ur inbox and send them a message.It's only visible to u and the person u r sending.Messages are private.

Facebook Does not Provide the facility of Scraps. There is Wall Posting. You can post Comments and messages on your friends wall.
Here is what you need!!!

Hope This Helps!!! Please Don't Forget to Rate my Response!!! Thanks!!!

i post to my friends facebook page from my account and i am a current friend is there a setting he needs to open to show my posts?

Yes, there is a setting that controls what is displayed and who can see what. Tell your friend to log into his account and then click Account in the upper right corner, then choose Privacy Settings. Click Customize and then scroll down to the "Things others share" section, and he can change his settings so that wall posts that his friends make are visible to the people that he wants to be able to see them.
