Do you need to do some work on your Facebook Page before you launch it? Maybe you just want to hide your Facebook Page because you are rebranding your business. Learn how to make your Facebook Page private and hide it from fans and friends.

Who can see my Facebook Page?

When you make your Facebook Page private, this will hide it from fans. This means they won’t be able to see it or even find it within Facebook Graph Search.

If someone is an admin on your Facebook Page will still be able to see it.

If someone is a manager, they will be able to see your Facebook Page and make changes to it.

To make your Facebook Page private, follow the instructions listed below.

    Hi, I am sorry if my question seems stupid: I am trying to adjust who can see my pictures and whenever i choose from the privacy setting who can see (by list) and then i test it to check who can see what ( view profile as a specific person) nothing changes! would you please help me?

      Yasmine Mahmoud, are you trying this from the same browser? It may be getting cached.

      I recommend setting the privacy settings in a photo first and then go to a different browser and use the “Facebook view as…” tool.

      Here is a link to the Facebook view as tool.
