By India Today Web Desk: Facebook, one of the most used social media applications across the globe allows its users to create close friend lists. Close Friends list is a friend list on Facebook which separates some friends from all other friends on the list. If you post anything on Facebook and select Close friends option, then only the people inside your Close friend's list will be able to view it and the actions will not be visible to any other Facebook users from your account.
Close Friends feature comes in handy at times when you want to share an update with only certain friends. Use this feature and separate your professional contacts from personal ones. Now, if you are wondering how to add other Facebook users in your close friend's list then you use this article as a reference.
To summarize, then, after we control for demographic characteristics, we do not find that use of any SNS platform is associated with having a larger or smaller general overall social network. However, we do find that Facebook users are more likely to have a larger number of close social ties. Facebook use seems to support intimacy, rather than undermine it.
After watching this episode of Update, you'll want to double check your Facebook privacy settings. Facebook is adding a option to your app that will broadcast your location to friends. It is optional, but you should be aware of how it works. And you may just find the map feature handy when you are meeting someone at the mall or the park.
Note that there are already a few other services that offer similar, or even better, features that bank on location sharing. Just to name a few there is Circle, an app you can use to find out what local events are happening around you and which of your friends are attending the events.
This list of close friends is only for your Instagram stories, so either videos or photographs. It does not apply to posts on your feed, Reels or videos. To limit access to this content, you can block certain users or close your account.
From the Instagram mobile app you can create a list of your close friends. The first thing you need to do is create one, and from there you can edit it as much as you want by adding or removing users.
Your TikTok videos might be interesting, creative, fun, and appealing, but that doesn't necessarily mean you want the entire world to see them. While you're fine with strangers watching your videos, you may not want your close friends, family, and coworkers to see the kinds of mischief you're up to.
Social media applications such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram have the ability to keep up with your friendships. As scary as it sounds, by monitoring your statuses, relationships and activities updates, media applications can predict who your close friends are.
But these media platforms also have the capability of finding the friends you should add to your networks. So how exactly is that done? Unless you pay attention to the terms of agreement when first creating your account, you might have missed the request to access your phone and email contacts. Facebook, according to the Washington Post, specifically request your permission with this as a way to scan your contacts to find similar users on your social media sites.
If you've been a Facebook user for a while, then you probably have a folder full of unread messages that you didn't even know existed: the Message Requests folder. This is where Facebook sends all the missives from people you're not currently friends with. It could be filled with old high school flings reaching out or a bunch of Nigerian spammers. Who knows? Only one way to find out!
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.
Facebook will tell you every morning who among your friends is celebrating their arrival on Earth. If you hate that and birthdays in general, stop the notifications. Go to Settings > Notifications. There are many things here you can curtail, such as highlights of what you did on that day in the past, activities of your closest friends, the launch of new local Pages, etc. But not far down is the option to turn off the birthdays.
Now that you know how and where to find friends online, you have to master the art of communicating virtually. This consists of creating good profiles, writing sincere messages, choosing who to contact, and keeping conversations interesting.
The Bible reminds us again and again that we need relationships with people we can trust. You need close friends who will encourage you, inspire you, challenge you, love you, and pray for you. And they need you to do the same for them.
It's also important to know your audience. If your profile is public, don't post anything you wouldn't want your boss seeing. Keep excessive drinking, drugs and other potentially offensive material out of your photos. All it takes is one person seeing the wrong thing, and you could be the object of workplace politics, gossip, discipline or even termination or legal action in a worst-case scenario! Instagram has a \"close friends\" tool which allows you to separate those who can see your posts from those who can't.
Despite everything we know about the importance of maintaining social connections as we get older, finding friends after 60 can be a challenge. As we age, the easy social connections that we enjoyed as schoolmates, parents, and colleagues change.
You might be surprised that you have developed common interests with your old friends in the years after school. Or, you might find that an old friendship that lapsed due to distance can be picked up where it left off.
There is also nothing wrong with using online dating sites to find new friends. Many single men and women over 60 are starting over and developing casual, relaxed relationships, without the pressure. And, who knows. Maybe one of your new friendships will lead to something more romantic.
Even if your friendship is totally platonic, it can still be a source of fun, fulfillment, and companionship. If you are interested in finding a romantic partner, you may enjoy my interview with dating coach, Lisa Copeland.
Zuckerberg's friends list is set to private, and for good reason. However, to run this hack, we're going to need to find at least one friend of his who has a public friends list so that we can look at their mutual friends.
