Facebook is the most popular social networking site and it is also the most criticized when it comes to user privacy settings. Facebook keeps changing the privacy settings frequently and making it harder and confusing for the users to get the exact privacy they want on Facebook.

Facebook usually provides the options to hide your status updates, images etc to unknown people. But what if you do not want your friend list to appear in your Facebook Timeline profile?
