  • This guide will walk you through how to make lists of friends -- allowing certain friends, such as colleagues, to be separated from your college friends. This guide alone is a crucial part of the overall Facebook Lockdown Guide, and will help you out a great deal in further guides.

    Not everyone should see everything -- and this guide will show you how to do it in only a few simple steps. Start here, and you will be set throughout the whole series of Facebook Lockdown gallery guides.

  • To create a list of friends, from your profile, select the Friends option in the left hand pane.

    4. Select Create list.

    Sorry this has to be the clunkiest way to present a guide. Why not put it on one page that we could scroll through, that's the way we read internet content by default. I thought this was something I'd book mark to use when I log int FB next, but it's not.

    Hi, there. Is there supposed to be some descriptive text with the second page in gallery 1?

      @runnelsm@... Fixed -- some back-end glitch, I suspect.

    I depend on ZDNet/cnet for good computer related information. I spend a great deal of time away from my desk and would like to be able to easily print the guide and read while in transit (mass) from one place to another. This actually applies to all of your information.

    Ditto on the need for a single-article PDF. Unless, of course, it's because you recognize that this content will be - is - outdated before it got published. And niuce that you've got a "Like" button. Where's the opposing thumbs-down?

    Unfortunately since the creation of this guide Facebook changed the way things are organized on a users page... so not everything is clear. An example is the friends list. I select my profile and then friends... there is NOTHING to support your advice to create a new list. They hid that somewhere else now and your guide/steps are not correct. And as others have asked, please put it in .pdf. It is too darn hard to read pages and pages of pictures...
