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
internet search facebook login
once logged in in the left hand corner on the facebook homepage you will click on edit my profile then on profile picture which you can remove across to the right you will see a browse tab where you can browse to your new photo to upload

How do I send a message to all my facebooik friends? Do I have to click all friends individually? Thank you


You can message up to twenty Facebook friends or email addresses at once. However, if you are contacting someone on Facebook you are not friends with via a Facebook message, you can only message him or her individually.

If you'd like to distribute a message to a specific group that you are a part of, you can post on the Group Wall. If the admin of the group has set up a Facebook email address, then emailing that group email address will also generate a post to that group's Wall. All members of the group will be able to see your post, and those members who have allowed group notifications will also receive and email notification about your post.

Yes you have to select each person one at a time.

My facebook account may have compromised. the facebook team send me a message and i don't understand how to reply those e-mail from facebook team. help me


Hi there,

You do not need to reply to those emails from Facebook. Contained in the email is link to Facebook, you need to follow this link and it will help you change your password. If you reply to the email from Facebook, it will be rejected because that email account has been set-up to send only and not receive.

If you cannot find any link in the email, go to Facebook's website and try and login, it ill then ask you to change your password. Change it and your problem is solved.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a great day and please remember to rate this solution.

Rose.morgillo@yahoo.comI am trying to get on facebook and cannot get on. I get on every day and have no problem. can you tell me why I have a problem now.


If facebook team find something unusual activity with your facebook account like sending messages to a large group of friends, They will temporarily shut off your account for suspecting of spamming and phishing and it will took it 24 hours for confirmation. If your account was cleared, it will be available again after that period.

However, if they verified that your account is phished and or sending multiple spams, most probably it will be blocked.

If you feel that your account was not phished or spamming but then its blocked, you can send email to disabled@facebook.com. Bring your issued with them and ask them the reasons why they block your account. Enabling your account is only once so make sure you know the reasons why they shut you off so it will not happen again.

If this solve your problem, please comeback and rate this solution. Thank you for using Fixya.
