Nobody can help me with a valid answer.

I have been told you can change your settings so that you do not appear as a friend on your firiends "friend list."

Is this true? If so, how do you do it?

I cannot find any settings that would do this.

No idea how you could do that. Only thing I figured out was setting to Friends Only means that their 'friends' cannot see your profile. Unless you tag the mutual friend in a pic, they have no access to your info.........at least that's what I hope it meant (that wasn't much help was it Sad )

Thanks for trying anyway!

I think it is impossible to do what I was told is possible. I was told by very young college students, so I thought for sure they would know because of their age.

I've been trying to figure out a way to do this also with no success. I had told my sister a few years ago that I didn't want to add her as a friend on my FB and to not send me a request. She has some old friends of mine from hs that have been trying to get in touch with me and some family members on her friends list that I do not care to keep in touch with. Though I can understand my sister's excitement as she just had her first child 3 months ago, and wants to send me updates and pics of the baby, she sends me a friend's request. After I specifically mentioned to her not to and the reason why. I caved because I didn't want to hurt her feelings, and just felt that if those on her friends list send me a request, I'll just ignore it with the excuse that I'm hardly ever on there, maybe once or twice a year. Which is far from the truth because I need FB for my pinterest addiction. lol

No timeline, so I guess the old facebook.

BBE you can limit who can send you a friend request. it is in your privacy settings.

Privacy -how you connect - who can send you friend requests. But then maybe you want others to send you requests... it's a pickle, isn't it?

I know but I've customized so much security on my FB (it's pretty bad ... lol) that when they do an update I have to go back and check that my security settings didn't get wiped out and everyone has full access to things I don't want them to. It happened to me one time. I'll just ignore them if they send me a request. I haven't accepted the timeline either, I'll wait until FB forces it on my account.

Yorkie, it was nice and mild here. It felt weird wearing my winter coat out. Nope, no Super Bowl Plans here. I think I'm going to watch some the 3rd season DVDs of Breaking Bad tomorrow.
