    I went to "Account", then selected "edit friends" but on the left column there is no "limited profile". Now what?

  • mikeb457 Apr 27, 2010

    she was not blocked, she was only restricted, again that drop down box does not include the "Limited Profile", is there possibly a phone number to ANYONE at Facebook where I can actually talk to a real human being that may be able to walk me thru this?

    Hi Mike, go to the restricted person's FB page, click on the "Friends" box, and scroll down until you see Restricted, and unselect this field (by clicking on it)

Hi, Go to "Account", select "Edit friends" from the drop down menu. Then on the left nav column, click on "Limited profile". This should show the list of "friends" you have decided to restrict your profile access. You can edit your list from this page (see buttons on the top of the centered column). Hope that helps.

    Hmm.. Here's a screenshot of the left nav -- just
    to make
    sure we are on the same page.
























    Otherwise, the only thing I can think of is, instead of restricted your
    daughter's access to your account you might have blocked her. You can
    check by
    going to "Account", then "privacy settings". Select Block
    list. If her name is listed you can unblock by clicking on
    "remove".

Do you mean that you have that one person excluded from seeing certain things, such as photos, etc?
Facebook made a lot of programming changes to the layout, so it is easy to get confused or just plain lost.
Go to the upper right screen to the drop-down list under the word ACCOUNT. Choose PRIVACY SETTINGS. Then click on the BLOCK list. It is possible that person got entirely blocked. Just remove them from the block list if that is the case. You will have to add that person back to your friends list via an invite. Unblocking does NOT automatically restore them.
If they were not on the blocked list, then check for privacy restrictions set up -
Privacy SettingsProfile Information
This will show you if someone put that person on a restricted view list. I use that myself to control who can see what. Just because they play Mafia Wars with me does not mean I want them to see photos of my kids, for example.
You can adjust the settings there, and that should do it for you.

Hope that helped you out! : )

How to enable cookies for facebook. when ever I try to log in message comes that cookieds are not enable in your browser


You can configure your privacy settings in Internet Explorer 6 by clicking Internet Options on the Tools menu, and then clicking the Privacy tab.
NOTE: An administrator can customize your privacy settings and remove the Privacy tab from the interface in the Internet Options dialog box. If the Privacy tab is not available, contact your administrator, or see the "Information for Advanced Users and IT Professionals" section.
These settings replace the cookies settings on the Security tab in Internet Explorer 4 and 5 (and the Advanced tab in Internet Explorer 3). The Privacy settings slider has six settings: Block All Cookies, High, Medium High, Medium (default level), Low, and Accept All Cookies.
The following Privacy settings are available with the slider:
Block All Cookies: Cookies from all Web sites will be blocked, and existing cookies on your computer cannot be read by the Web sites that created them. Per-site privacy actions do not override these settings.
High: Blocks cookies that do not have a compact privacy policy or that have a compact privacy policy which specifies that personally identifiable information is used without your explicit consent. Cookies that were already on your computer before you installed Internet Explorer 6 are leashed (restricted so that they can only be read in the first-party context). Per-site privacy actions override these settings.
Medium High: Blocks third-party cookies that do not have a compact privacy policy or that use personally identifiable information without your explicit consent. Blocks first-party cookies that have a compact privacy policy which specifies that personally identifiable information is used without your implicit consent. First-party cookies that do not have a compact privacy policy and cookies that were already on your computer before you installed Internet Explorer 6 are leashed (restricted so that they can only be read in the first-party context). Per-site privacy actions override these settings.
Medium (default level): Blocks third-party cookies that do not have a compact privacy policy or that have a compact privacy policy which specifies that personally identifiable information is used without your implicit consent. First-party cookies that have a compact privacy policy which specifies that personally identifiable information is used without your implicit consent are downgraded (deleted when you close Internet Explorer). First-party cookies that do not have a compact privacy policy are leashed (restricted so that they can only be read in the first-party context). Cookies that were already on your computer before you installed Internet Explorer 6 are also leashed. Per-site privacy actions override these settings.
Low: First-party cookies that do not have a compact privacy policy are leashed (restricted so that they can only be read in the first-party context). Cookies that were already on your computer before you installed Internet Explorer 6 are also leashed. Third-party cookies that do not have a compact privacy policy or that have a compact privacy policy which specifies that personally identifiable information is used without your implicit consent are downgraded (deleted when you close Internet Explorer). Per-site privacy actions override these settings.
Accept All Cookies: All cookies will be saved on your computer, and existing cookies on your computer can be read by the Web sites that created them. Per-site privacy actions do not override these settings.
NOTE: Changing your privacy preferences does not affect the cookie acceptance policy for cookies that have already been set unless you move the slider to Accept All Cookies or Block All Cookies.
Internet Explorer displays a Privacy dialog box the first time that a cookie is restricted based on your privacy preferences. This dialog box appears only one time, unless you clear the Don't show this message again check box. The Privacy dialog box explains that a new status icon (the Privacy Report icon) is added to the status bar when you visit a Web site that does not meet your privacy preferences. You can double-click this icon to view a privacy report that explains how the Web site either has privacy practices that conflict with your preferences or has no published privacy policy. You can also view a privacy report for any site by clicking Privacy Report on the View menu.
NOTE: The Privacy slider works only in the Internet zone. All cookies are automatically accepted from Web sites in both the Local Intranet and Trusted zones, and all cookies are automatically blocked from Web sites in the Restricted zone.

On facebook i m told to enable cookies, so how toenable it?


depends on the browser you are using, if it's internet explorer, you will find cookie settings under the menu option "tools" -> internet options -> tab "privacy" adjust the slider to set cookie restriction level.

if it's firefox (the good choice btw) goto "tools" -> options -> tab "privacy" and set the option "firefox will :" to custom and you'll get a menu for setting cookie restrictions

How do you unblock someone on facebook?


There are three ways to block someone:
  1. Go to the Block Lists from your Privacy Settings page. Enter the name or email address of the person you want to block in the appropriate field and click "Block."
  2. If you cannot find someone using the Person search field, try going to their profile page. You can block them by navigating to the "Report/Block this Person" link at the bottom of their profile page. Once you click this link, check the "Block this person" box and then click "Submit."
  3. Lastly, please note that you can block someone through the "Report" link located next to messages in your Inbox.
People will not be notified when you block them. If you are unable to block someone using any of the methods listed above, it is possible that they have left Facebook or have restricted their privacy settings.

If you cannot block someone and would like to prevent them from viewing your profile, you can adjust your privacy settings accordingly. For more information on editing your Privacy Settings, click here. /help/?faq=12252
