    I guess my setting isn’t the same as you explain here. When I go to custom it asks me who I want to see my stuff and I just have friends. I don’t allow anyone who it not a friend of mine to see my information.

    I set all of that up previously before Facebook made yet another switch so I know I’m good.

    Thanks for sharing this though.

  2. I remember Once I had visited a lady profile looking generous but couldn’t find more details about her.I could just able to know her name and when I sent friend request to her,it says do you know this person?
    I think she had secured her Facebook account with such tricks.
    Thanks for sharing!
