Cannot modify my privacy settings

Hello everyone! I had to re-create my friends lists a little bit ago and when I tried to edit my privacy settings in all the lists it was just impossible: every time I try to modify a privacy setting a window opens stating that a script has stopped responding, that I can either stop the scrip or continue. I've tried both options but it hasn't solved a thing, I still can't modify my privacy settings so as a result all my contacts in facebook have access to all my information. What can I do? Thank you!

    Thank you leehumphreys but your solution doesn't fix my problem... I had already tried it, even tried changing my settings from different computers and with different web browsers, nothing seems to work so far...

    My problem has nothing to do with logging in.

How to unblock access to games in facebook using proxy


You can modify block list through facebook by logging in, then at the top right to go "privacy settings", then at the bottom of the page you can "Apps and Websites" and edit that information. You can also switch between HTTPS and HTTP browsing by going to the "account settings" and then down to "privacy" under the settings tab.

I hope this helps and if so thumbs up my solution!

Who views my facebook profile?

If you question means that whether can I know who views my profile..well,facebook doesnt have this feature. Don't get fooled by applications which proclaims that ti will show your recent visitors. Those are just spams. But you can control who can view your profile.

Your facebook profile can be viewed by
1.people in your friends list alone if you have given such privacy settings
2.friends of your friends when such privacy settings are set
3.everyone when no privacy settings are set

You can restrict your photo album to be viewed by everyone,friends,specific friends and only You.

You can change these privacy settings by logging in to facebook->account->privacy settings. there you will view your current settings and various other settings.

You can customize all these settings as you wish and return back to profile.

I blocked one persons profile picture and it blocked everyone else. How do I unblock?

Hi, Go to your privacy settings ( use the Account drop down on the top right). Scroll down and click on the "edit your list" under the Block Lists header. You should see a list of the "friends" you block and you can unblock them by clicking on the "unblock" link right next to their name. Hope that helps!

Go to Account and click on Privacy settings to control what your friends can see and cannot.
Go to you FB profile and you will see on the "Friends" box a something like a small pencil. Click on it to Edit the box. Then you can tick or not tick show friends list to everyone and you can also edit how many friends you want to show.

I cannot get the entire news feed and all on my facebook homepage. there is always an error coming. hardly i can see anything done by all my frnds recently. only 3 or 4 posts r visible on my homepage. but...

Facebook changed their site a little bit. News Feed aggregates the most interesting content that your friends are posting, while Live Feed shows you all the actions your friends are making in real-time.

You can control how many friends are shown in Live Feed by clicking "Edit Options" at the bottom of the page.

The News Feed algorithm bases this on a few factors: how many friends are commenting on a certain piece of content, who posted the content, and what type of content it is (e.g. photo, video, or status update).

You can remove friends from the News Feed list (from your default stream) simply by clicking the "Hide" that appears when you hover over their story in your stream.

To add someone back to your News Feed, follow these steps:
  1. Scroll down to the bottom of your News Feed and click "Edit Options."
  2. If you are looking for a friend, scan the list to find that person. If you are looking for a public profile, select the Public Profiles tab.
  3. Click "Add to News Feed" to see their posts again.
  4. Click "Close" to save your changes.

  3. Click "Add to News Feed" to see their posts again.
  4. Click "Close" to save your changes.
Facebook enables you to see what’s happening with your friends through past events and real-time feeds of information. Highlights and the News Feed were combined into a single stream so that you could have more control over what you view on your home page and stay connected with your friends.

As a result of this change, you’ll notice that the Suggestions section has been moved to the right-hand column of the home page. Also, birthdays and events are displayed more prominently on the home page.

When someone sends you a friend request, public stories about you may appear in their News Feed. If you decline a friend request from this person, public stories about you (stories that have the privacy set to "Everyone") will no longer appear in their News Feed. Please note that News Feed will never show stories that a non-friend wouldn’t ordinarily be able to see. For example, if you posted a video and set the privacy to "Friends," a person who is waiting for you to approve their friend request would not see that in their News Feed. If you had set the video to be visible to Everyone, that person would see it.

You can always change your privacy settings by selecting "Privacy Settings" under the Settings drop-down menu and clicking the appropriate section.
