Updating Your Profile Information
Finally, let’s turn our attention to all the personal information displayed on your Profile page. If you don’t like what’s there, or need to add to or edit it, you can change it.
All you have to do is click the Update Info button at the top of your Profile page. This displays the About page (see Figure 6); every section on this page contains personal information that can be edited. Just click the Edit button for any section, make the appropriate additions or changes, then click the Done Editing button.

You also use the About page to select who can view what information in your profile. For example, you might want everyone to view your birthday, but only friends to view your marital status, and no one to view your contact information. You can fine-tune your profile as granularly as you like, in this fashion.
Just click the privacy button to the right of each item on the editing page. You can select from the following options:
- Public (everybody on Facebook)
- Friends (only people on your Facebook friends list)
- Only Me (nobody but you can see it)
- Custom (use to select specific people to view or hide this item from)
You can also opt to have a given piece of information visible only to selected friends lists. It’s totally your choice.
