Facebook allows you to test your privacy settings by letting you view your profile as though you were someone else on your friends list. Let's try this out:
1. Type in the name of your friend for who you want to view your profile as.
Your profile page will load up as though you are the person whose name you typed in. You can see in this example, my friend and colleague Jason Perlow has full access to my profile page, and can see everything.
Let's try this on someone else, who has a limited view of my profile. They are in a limited profile list of friends, and cannot see my Wall or any of my important information -- such as email addresses or phone numbers.
2. Type in the name of the friend who is on the limited profile list, or is specifically blocked from seeing certain content.
3. You will see in this example that only one comment has displayed -- because the comment is posted on a friend's profile which is set to Public -- allowing anyone with a Facebook account to see their profile.
