Facebook Tricks and Tips: 10 For Your Status Update

Facebook is becoming one of the biggest online social media sites of today, and users, present or new to the site, may not be aware that there are some tricks and tips to updating your Facebook status. Outlined below are just some of these that users may find beneficial.

According to Amy-Mae Elliott at Mashable, one of the tips to explore, is the facility to hide your status updates from certain people. If users are not already of aware of this, at the top of your Facebook page, inside your account information are your privacy settings. Here you can select who can see your updates from viewing your wall and clicking on the padlock icon just below the “what’s on your mind” box. A drop down menu then gives you the option to customize who you want your status to be visible to.

Other options available to the user can be the customizing of symbols on your status, adding a dislike option to your status update, tagging people, seeing status updates from all around the world and being able to trick your friends in your status update.
