you have to go to privacy settings and use the custom function so that only friends can see your pic...then when someone searches they cant see you


So your name won't even show up... if someone searches your name facebook will tell you there are no results found?

I want people to be able to find me just not see my pic until I accept them as a friend, but right now i changed everything to only friends, and it still shows my pic when a random person searches for me!

hmmm it shouldnt do...sometimes takes 24 hours for settings changes to take effect though... but I went on to my privacy settings and on the drop down on my profile pics albums I selected custom....and then selected only friends and it worked

Sometimes, it's because they have mutual friends..

I don't think you can hide your current pic anymore, just all your others.

you can't do it since they changed fb... Bit of a bother so I just used a random picture fior my profile pic & they can see all my albums once I've confirmed the friendship.

If you want to have friends find you, you may find a profile pic is essential. SUppose you search for Fred Bloggs and 200+ of them all show up, how will they know which one is you?

I would have thought a profile pic was the least senstive bit of info you could have on display!
(assuming it's appropriate of course :) !!)

agreed,its personal albums and family stuff you dont want strangers seeing but a small profile pic should be ok and willl help real friends know its you:)
