OK, I see how to do that. I'm wondering if there is any way to just stop all posts from goofy people from appearing on the News/Live Feed? Aside from un-friending them.

ETA: Duh. OK, now I get it. I also have to click on the rectangle that says to "Hide Person'sName". So cool!

And do people get notified if I un-friend them? I know they can see if I still have them listed as a friend, if they care to look through my short list of friends.

By hiding them, you're just stopping their silly posts from popping up on your news feed and live feed. Un-friending them is, as you wrote, taking them off your friends list. They won't get a notification. But if your list is short, they might notice.
Can anyone shed some light on why everyone is stating that they owe so much money in "fines"? What's going on now?

Dunno, ASQ. Facebook has a lot of memes, maybe it's a new one?

I think people feel as if they are clever and "in the loop" or something by participating in those.

Thanks to my FB friends for helping me beat my FB addiction--there's the silver lining!

I've noticed that if I'm on a friend's profile and view a comment they posted to a friend...even if their friend is not a contact of mine, I can see their friend's status update to which my friend commented. However that same friend of theirs has their settings on 'friends only' as far as who can view their stuff.

If independently of my friend's action to their page, I want to view their wall, I would be limited from doing that.

If someone is not friends with both people (like myself in that instance) I don't think facebook should allow that person to see the content their non-friend posted. The exchange doesn't show up on any home feed because it's not between two mutual contacts, but it's still viewable off profiles.

They don't really fully inform us of the ramifications of these changes. So be careful out there!

I like Facebook. I'm a little disturbed by some of the people that want to be my "friend". They're really not interested in "friendship" more like spying and gossiping.

At one point I had over 600 "friends". The number has been drastically reduced.

Get notification when someone views your profile.

It looks like you have to join in order for this to work. I can't imagine who'd want to do that.

When you remove someone from your friends do they get a notification? I've always wondered.

If you remove someone chances are they will find out when they try to look at your profile or write on your wall. That little gold lock is always a dead giveaway.
I did that with my BIL, who was posting eleventy billion Mafia Wars requests daily.

I am going to poke around to see if I can figure out how to change that setting -- so that only friends can see my wall. If I set it that way, does that mean that they can't see my Info tab either? Bugs the heck out of me that people can see what I'm a "fan" of there, so I haven't become of a fan of anything.

Interesting that there's no mention of being able to see someone's wall within a status update exchange (when only one of the individuals is a friend). Very deceptive.

I rarely do status updates, so I'm not very concerned but I'm not sure a lot of people are aware of this.
medussa, thank you so much for starting this thread!

I am very new to FB. I have younger cousins -- adults, 40-ish -- who post stupid alcohol-related comments. Like I give a flying flip about what they are drinking and how many more they want???? This shows up on my News Feed or Live Feed. Does anyone know if there is any way for me to block seeing that cr^p?

As far as not seeing that stuff, you can hide these individuals by scrolling over their comments and clicking to the far right on "hide." I did that with my BIL, who was posting eleventy billion Mafia Wars requests daily. I don't see him on either of my feeds now but he's still able to post comments on any pictures I post or to the occasional status update. It was the perfect solution for me.

But yes, I've hidden Farmville, Petville, Cafe World, etc... <-----sorry if I got the names wrong. But when I see one of those games/memes, I hide them, not the friend.

If you don't want to be able to be found on Google or another search engine, click on Search in the Privacy Settings and uncheck the box that says, "Allow" (if it's checked).
