Facebook question

Can you hide you are friends with someone? Here is the situation. My mom just got on FB. She is friends with my brothers ex. my brothers urrent fiance is very jealous and would be upset if she knew. This is my brothers ex from high school and he is 27 it was a long time ago and my mom and her mom have always been friends. We live in a small town and my brother doesnt care who my mom is friends with. We do want to be respectful of the new girlfriend though and not cause problems for them. (brother and his girlfrind live 5 hrs away from us). Can my mom "hide" her online friend status with the ex girlfriend? If yes how?

  • If they are on your friends list you can't hide your friends from your friends. Just block them or make your account private. No one who is on my friends list can see my friends or even my profile.

  • Bumping for ya. I know you could hide your friends list back when I was a member, but if they have changed things again, I have no clue.

  • Yeah, knicole is right. I was curious and looked and you can set it that only you can see who your friends are.

  • Go to privacy settings and you can choose who can see your friend list.

  • The only why I know is if the new GF has the old GF blocked then she cant see what she is doing even if its on his and your mothers page
