Facebook: How to hide the friend list on your profile in 6 steps.

1. Click on "Account" in your Facebook title bar
2. Choose "Privacy settings". Now you see the dialogue "sharing on Facebook".
3. On the bottom, in the middle there is a small link "Customize settings". Click on it.
4. Now you see "Things I share". The third entry is "Relationships". Click in the corresponding pull down menu, choose "Custom".
5. Now you see the dialogue "Custom privacy". Next to "Make this visible to .. these people" select "Only me"
6. Click on "Save setting". You're done!! 😀

Update
This won't hide the friend list to your friends. It just hides it to people that don't have a connection with you.

Update 2
See my last comment if you want to hide the list to everybody except you.

  1. This is not true, it may hide it to non-friends but all your friends on FB can still see your friends list. To prove it just look at preview profile and enter in a friends name to see what they can see. The friends list will be shown to them.

    You're right! I just tried it with a friend in my list and it displays the list to him.. :irked: Thanks for your hint!

  3. I got it now: Open your profile page. In the title bar of the friend list box there is a small pen. Click on it. Now you see a list what who can see and so on. On the right side next "Friend list" there is a dropdown menu. There, choose "custom", then select only me. Thats it.
