As far as I know they cannot tell you are online unless you have the chat feature on.

Down where the chat box is in the lower right corner if you click on it to show all that are online, click the options tab at the top, and pick go offline.

This will make you offline for chat, but as soon as you click on it again it will put you back online, and you will simply just repeat the process to be offline.

How do u see someone hidden friends On Facebook


Usually friends are hidden depending on the person's Facebook you are on or the person's friend has it set to hide. Usually you can only not see friends if you are not friends with this person. It's a privacy setting. I hope this made sense.

Top 10 Facebook tips

Below is a listing of our top 10 tips for the popular social networking website Facebook.

Hide users, games, polls, etc.

It quickly gets annoying seeing some users posts, game invites, polls, etc. Hovering your mouse to the right of the post and clicking the Hide button as shown below can hide any post. Once this button is pressed you'll be prompted with the option to hide that user or in the case of a Facebook application the option to hide that application from ever showing up on your profile.


To unhide someone or unblock an application click the Edit Options link in the bottom right corner of the news feed as shown below.


Greasemonkey and FB Purity

Although Facebook does not allow the ability to hide friends getting new friends messages, friends becoming fans of something, and some application messages they can still be hidden with browser add-ons. If you're running Mozilla Firefox, Chrome, Opera, or Safari we suggest installing the Facebook Purity add-on

Update your privacy settings

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 through all the privacy settings to verify your privacy is properly protected.

Anything that is not set to friends only or friends of friends can be seen by anyone searching on the Internet. Below is a few things we recommend for most users.

1. Under Search in Privacy settings uncheck Public Search Results. This will prevent users from finding your account and profile picture in search results such as Google

2. Under Application settings, make sure you're only allowing applications you want to have access to your information. Applications that you grant rights to can have access to your Facebook profile information.

Use the Facebook top bar for navigation


Knowing how to properly navigate is vital if you want to get the most out of Facebook. Below is a brief description of each of the available options in the top bar as shown above.

Home (facebook logo) - Clicking this logo will take you to your wall (News Feed) that shows all friends recent posts.

Friend requests - If any friend requests are waiting to be approved this icon will show a 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.

Modify your account notifications

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.


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 profile.

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


hope this helps you

I'm trying to chat with friends. I type what I want to say.....then "Enter".....I see that what I typed went through....but my friends don't respond!....I see that they are still online...


Hi there, I've been experiencing the same issue with Facebook. Here's what you can do. instead of chatting through the chatbox, hit MESSAGES then use it instead on chat box. You can chat from there as long as your friend is online. Maybe there is a bug on Facebook.
Good luck!

I made an account on facebook last week and im blocked from sending messages and friend requests and i havent even got my family members as soon as i made the account they more or less jumped on to me...


Many people are quite aware of online scams. Don't take it personally when you are blocked by someone. I myself blocked allot of friends that I don't know.

So best way is just add people you know.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using Fixya.

How do I get my friends out of Hidden Friends?


there are 2 ways but one is apparently not working)
( on the bottom of your homepage it says "see hidden friends" -if you click there , those friends should show up and you can add them back to the news feed)

but

hopefully this one will work - it worked for me - but then facebook is totally messed up right now...

on your home page
go to a post from a friend

hide another friend by bringing the cursor to the right until the x appears
a little window will appear with:
so and so has been hidden....
click on "show hidden friends" - then:
add to news feed
that should bring them back.

I just hid and "de-hid 2 of my friends and it worked
If it doesn't you have to wait until facebook fixes that glitch

If this does not work, then use firefox and it will work.
good luck and let me know ...
