Please review all of your interactions with specific friends by going to their profile page and selecting the three dots to the right of the Message icon. Select See Friendship from the drop-down.
For example, cybercriminals can use your full name and profile photo to create a fake Facebook account impersonating you. If your Facebook Friends list is public, they could send messages to your connections, pretending to be you and asking them for money, sensitive information or other favors. Since the phony account uses real photos, criminals can fool your friends and family into thinking they are actually speaking to you.
Friend suggestions. As you just learned, Facebook suggests folks you might be interested in being friends with based on criteria such as your profile details and the friends you already have. To see these suggestions, follow the steps on Finding People Who Are Facebook Members.
While this will hide your Friends list, there are a few ways people can still uncover a few of your Friends. When people visit your profile, they may see Friends you have in common. Plus, if your Friends have public Friends lists, you'll be visible there. Changing your own Facebook privacy settings will help you lock down your privacy, but if your Friends haven't done the same, they may be able to piece together some clues with a simple search.
You can't see who views your Facebook profile. Facebook holds on to confidential data very closely. The company's official statement reads: "No, Facebook doesn't let people track who views their profile. Third-party apps also can't provide this functionality. If you come across an app that claims to offer this ability, please report the app."
You can only add music to your Facebook profile in the Facebook mobile app. Open your profile page and scroll down to the section where you can add photos, avatars, and life events. Swipe until you see Music, and then select it. Select the plus sign (+) to add a song. Choose the song you want to pin and select More (three dots) > Pin to Profile.
To view your Facebook profile as it appears to the public, select your profile icon, then select More (three dots). In the app, select More (three dots) near Add Story > View as. You'll see how your profile appears to non-friends.
In an interview with Steven Levy published on May 28, 2015, Horowitz said that Google+ was about to undergo a "huge shift" that would better reflect how the service is actually used. By that time, two core Google+ functions, communications and photos, had become standalone services. Google Photos, Google's photo and video library, was announced at the May 2015 Google I/O conference. Google Hangouts, Google's communications platform, was announced two years earlier, also at Google I/O. Google subsequently refocused Google+ on shared interests, removing features not supporting "an interest-based social experience". The company also eliminated the Google+ social layer; users no longer needed a Google+ profile to share content and communicate with contacts. The transition began with YouTube, where a Google+ profile was no longer required to create, upload, or comment on a channel, but a Google+ page was instead required. YouTube comments no longer appeared on Google+ or vice versa.[excessive citations]
A Google+ user profile was a publicly visible account of a user that was attached to many Google properties. It included basic social networking services like a profile photo, an about section, a cover photo, previous work and school history, interests, places lived and an area to post status updates. It also included several identity service sections, such as a contributor and other profiles area that allowed users to link their "properties across the web". These sections were optionally linked to other social media accounts one had, any blogs one owns or have written or sites one is a contributor to. This area was used for Google Authorship. Customized or Vanity URLs were made available to the public starting on October 29, 2013, to any account that was 30+ days old and had a profile photo and at least 10 followers. Google removed author photos from search results in June 2014, and in August 2014 Google stopped showing authorship in search results, both photo and author name.
Starting in November 2011, Google+ profiles were used as the background account for many Google services including YouTube, Gmail, Google Maps, Android, Google Play, Google Music, Google Voice, Google Wallet, Google Local and more. As of January 10, Google Search was customized with a feature called Search Plus Your World, which inserted content shared on Google+ profiles and brand pages under Web Search results, if one was logged into one's Google+ account while using it. The feature, which was opt-in, was received with controversy over the emphasis of Google+ profiles over other social networking services. The feature built upon the earlier "Social Search" feature which indexes content shared or published by authors; "Social Search", however, relied partly upon returns from non-Google services, such as Twitter and Flickr. As of July 2011, tweets were no longer shown due to the expiration of Google's contract with Twitter.
Google+ Pages was released on November 7, 2011 to all users, allowing businesses to connect with fans. It allowed entities which were not individuals (such as organizations, companies, and publications) to set up profiles, or "pages", for the posting and syndication of posts. It was similar to Facebook Pages.
Google+ Views was introduced on April 1, 2014. It featured a "view counter", which is displayed on every user's profile page. The view counter showed the number of times the user's content had been seen by others, including photos, posts, and profile page. This feature was later removed in favor of an insights feature.
Events allowed users to invite other people to share photos and media in real time. This was removed from Google+ as part of the November 2015 redesign, but later added back in a different location. Events were later included on the user's profile.
"Facebook Reels are a new way to create short, entertaining videos, get discovered by new audiences and be part of cultural moments on Facebook. Effects and music can be added to your reel or use your own original audio, allowing you to bring your ideas to life and share them with your audience. Reels you create will appear in places like Facebook Feed, the Reels section on Facebook, or your Reels profile."
Facebook also offers interest-based dating groups (Jordy has joined several, including one for vegetarians and another for mindful living). Other dating groups on Facebook include those for people who are recently divorced or for meeting other singles in their 50s, 60s and 70s. Users can join these dating groups for free using their personal Facebook profiles and post, comment and interact.
Zoosk started out as one of the first dating apps to integrate with Facebook in 2007, although now there's Facebook Dating. Zoosk doesn't require users to fill out all their profile information, making long-lasting connections less likely than short-term dating or hookups. Sign in with your Google or Facebook account for ease of use, but know you're giving up personal information from your social media accounts to log in that way. Scroll through profiles instead of swiping while on the app, and use the paid subscription to unlock the ability to send messages to matches. Pricing starts at $12.49 per month.
A niche dating service for Jewish singles, JDate offers both a website and a smartphone app. JDate's website says each profile is reviewed by their customer care team with the goal of building Jewish communities and ensuring culture and tradition last for generations. JDate sends curated matches to users, but also allows them to browse other profiles. Prices start at $19.99 per month for six months.
What about all the people you asked to be your friend who ignored or deleted your request? Facebook keeps track of that. Go to facebook.com/friends/requests(Opens in a new window) for a list of the people who hate you. Or maybe they just don't check Facebook that much. Probably both.
Everyone on Facebook will die. Eventually. In anticipation of this unavoidable truth, Facebook lets you name a legacy contact(Opens in a new window) who will manage your account after you are gone. Your legacy contact can write a pinned post for your profile, respond to new friend requests that come after you have passed, and update your profile and cover photo (in case your final image is you in an ironic SpongeBob Halloween costume). They can even download your Facebook data, minus any messages you sent/received.
When you delete your profile, your usernames and music activity clear from Apple Music, but your Apple Music subscription isn't affected. If you shared a playlist with a friend and they saved it to their device, the playlist disappears. Your library and playlists don't change.
If you see something offensive on a user's profile or in an user-created playlist, you can report it to Apple and we'll investigate the issue. You can report a concern with any content that an Apple Music user uploads or shares.
You may be wondering at this point why you would want to know who has been viewing your profile. Aside from the curiosity factor, it offers you a great way to connect with other creators and boost your interactions. This is particularly important when your account is in its infancy, and your organic reach is limited.
Beyond that, when you know someone has viewed your profile you can go and view theirs. You can watch their videos, engage with their content and comment on a few relevant insights or witty observations. They will then likely respond in kind, and a rapport starts to build. 2b1af7f3a8
