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!

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 !!)
