Creating a Facebook private profile can be beneficial to those who want to stay in touch, but don’t want the information visible to everyone. The option is available on all pages, but the privacy controls are different for each individual page. To open the private profile, click the Downward Arrow at the top of the screen or view the individual Profile settings.
Private profile pages do not display any information to those not connected to your account. Only those you wish to view it will be able to view it. However, you can read posts and other activities posted by your friends. You can also read an unpublished private status message.
In order to open the Inactive Account tab, click the link that says “Get More Information.” This will take you to a page where you can enter the details you’d like to obtain about someone’s Facebook profile. Enter the details exactly as they appear on the public profile, including the profile photo and description if you are using one. All of the account’s activities will be listed, including those marked as “Like.”
While you’re logged in to your account, you can choose whom you’d like to share this information with. If you’re just looking to see if anyone you know is connected to anyone else on Facebook, you can view all their profiles. You’ll also be able to see if anyone you know has their account secured.
However, if you’d like to be able to view the private profile of a specific person or group, you’ll have to go to their page and then open the private profile tab. To do this, click the link that says “Pages: Open Private.” The Facebook interface will load up and list the individual’s pages. Each page will then have a button that says “Get More Information.”
Once you’ve found the individual’s page, click on the link to access the individual’s information. This includes their birthday, the latest place they work and whether they have a phone. The only information that’s currently available to non-members is their gender and age. Since Facebook will only store information on the members you specify, you won’t see any more personal information on the open page until you become a member.
Since this feature is currently only available to paid members, you may find it helpful to become a free member first. When you become a free member, you can browse through other members’ profiles. You can even search for specific information based on locations, careers, and friends. You’ll be asked to give this information out, but it won’t be posted publicly. Instead, you can choose among the group choices and then choose which information to reveal to others.
This feature isn’t available when you’re using a public profile. If you’d like to be able to see this information, you can join the “Advertising” group on your Facebook home page. From here, you can click on the link “Create a page” and then pick the private profile you want to create. You’ll also need to accept the terms of service set by Facebook before you are allowed to use this feature. After that, you’ll be ready to begin setting up your private profile. Make sure that your cover photo is a standard size, one that is resized to fit the profile box and that your Facebook background is the same as your profile background.
Depending on what kinds of content you put in your Facebook private profile, you may not be able to completely block your Facebook friends from accessing your information. However, there are ways around that. For instance, you can change your privacy settings so that only your friends can see who you chat with or send messages to. In general, though, it’s a good idea to post updated information about yourself or your events on your personal page.
Since you have a closed profile that only your friends can access, you will not be able to post photos on it or comments. However, if you would like to keep your Facebook private and simply not let anyone else use it, you can do so by removing the public section entirely. To do this, click on “Settings” on the top navigation panel at the top of the screen. Then click “Privacy” and scroll down to the bottom of the Privacy section.
While keeping your private profile open to the public is a good idea for a lot of people, it may not be safe for some. If you have important Facebook contacts, you may want to keep your private profile private to prevent others from bothering you or stealing your information. However, if you think you won’t get called often, you can open it up to the public if you’d like. Just make sure you check the “suppressed news” feed regularly so that your new updates aren’t missed!
