What does my Facebook profile look like to others?

December 6, 2012

Every once and I while I get asked, what does my facebook profile look like to non-friends. Sometimes there are colorful reasons behind this such as, I don’t want my ex-husband to see what I am doing or I don’t what strangers knowing that I own one of 15 original R2-D2’s.

Whatever your reason, here is how you do it as of now, December 6, 2012, though it changes about every year.
