Well for all of you who have ever wanted to be on Facebook but be a little bit anti-social and wanted to hide your Facebook profile then here’s how. Over at Jasonkeath.com the page owner himself tells us of reasons as to why anyone may want to hide their profile.

He says that he gets many people searching for him for various reasons as he is a blogger, attends events and speaks about different things. It is also explained that he doesn’t necessarily want to lose the professionals attempting to add him but instead he wants to keep profession and personal separate. It is clear that by hiding his personal page he will in turn promote his professional page where those that are interested will be able to find out the information that he offers.

That being the case, here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it. First of all go to your privacy settings, so to do this head to Account in the top right hand corner of the screen and then go down to Privacy Settings. From here click on View Settings from the Connecting on Facebook section. It is from here that you can change your visibility settings for a couple of different types of search. It is here that you can set it up how you wish.
