  2. Click the Friends tab (under profile photo along Timeline, About, Photos, Friends, More)

  4. Select Edit Privacy

edit privacy popup

An Edit Privacy popup will appear with these options:

  • Friend List
  • Following
  • Followers

Click on the dropdown arrow on the right of Followers and select "Only Me" or whatever you prefer.

Now the list of people who are following you will be restricted to the setting you've chosen.
