Your friend has completely logged out of Facebook on his or her mobile device and has chat set to "off" on their computer. FYI: This does not mean he or she is truly offline. He or she can still access Facebook via their web connection without any indication of activity or of a time stamp. Extensive personal experience avoiding a stalker has led me to this ...

The only way would be for your friend to share the photo only with you. Anyone who can see a Facebook post can also see all likes and comments on it. The ticker on the right is a firehose of everything happening among your Facebook friends, including Likes. It displays everything chronologically without trying to prioritize anything (unlike the news feed, ...

This article says that Facebook does give page administrators the option of hiding a comment, which makes it invisible to everyone except the commenter and his friends.

If you know the URL address of that user’s profile (e.g.: https://www.facebook.com/eminem), your best shot could be to try and send an email to the address username@facebook.com, where username is the name coming after facebook.com/ in the URL of the respective person’s profile (eminem@facebook.com in the previous example). That’s if the user activated this ...

You can use custom scripts to control the appearance of the stickers. For that you need to use a plugin on your browser that can do that, GreaseMonkey (for FireFox) and Tampermonkey (for Chrome) Once you install the extension/plugin, you are ready to add the script for any site. I am not sure about Greasemonkey's function, to add a new script to Facebook, ...

As part of the Facebook sign up process, they have an option to import your email address book, in order to find your friends more easily. And on the mobile app, it does this for your contacts phone numbers that are stored in the phone as well. They therefore have a database of millions of peoples connections. If you are in one of those people's address ...

If she cannot log into your Gmail account, eventually Facebook is going to send a message to your Gmail account asking her for verification. Just let the verification emails sit without clicking on the link, and her Facebook account will eventually be removed.

Setting your birthday to "Friends of Friends" means that when your friends and their friends visit the About page on your profile, they will see the month and day of your birthday. In addition, the fact that your friends can see your birthday means that Facebook will notify all of your friends about your birthday. You don't need to change anything - your ...

If it's an open group and he/she subscribes to it, yes he will see the posts. Blocking the person is an option. The correct option is not writing posts behind friends' backs

Does it mean that Facebook will only generate random names from the perspective of the user who clicked in it Coupled with a user's (those who liked the post) privacy settings, yes.

Many assumptions here. Your news feed is built based on certain factors, you can change this view by looking for most recent. For the main view of News Feed, Facebook will select certain pages and friends to appear based on your interactions. Liking and commenting on this page will keep it an active item in your feed.

Sounds you should be using Facebook Groups. Also your admin users should post as the page to prevent confusion. If the main point is for users to talk to users, Facebook groups is the way to proceed.

Yes, Facebook does this to promote their marketing service. If post reach is low, there is a high chance of getting more page promoting advertisements, so facebook does this.

@Michael's solution is good. But here is another way: Facebook provide an option for the storing High Resolution images. I had seen while uploading multiple images (while creating an album) Snapshot:

This is because Facebook has some mobile deviceId against your name as you logged in from mobile once. Though you have logged out from that mobile device, the data has not cleared yet. In security settings, you can check active session and here you can end the session causing this problem.

No, it is not possible. The delay is by design and the reason is one might have second thoughts. It also takes time to scrub everything off, as some tasks might be put on a scheduled queue. After you request to have your account permanently deleted, we delay the deletion process a few days in case you change your mind. If you log into your account again ...

When I get that message from Facebook concerning my business page, it's always in reference to a post which I know is one of the more popular ones, so the report seems at least semi-accurate. The only odd, buggy thing, is that when I click on that message from Facebook to see the post in question, the error message ALWAYS comes up, Page not found. The ...

Actually facebook thinks that, someone tried to access your account. Therefore it is locked it down. This Problem occurs due to following reason: If you have clicked "Save Browser" and after logout someone tries to log-in.

Well, AFAIK there is no direct method for Facebook. But you can do a trick, Google provides the facility of “Search by Image”, utilise it, and analyse the result. Which is the most common thing occurs in the result, try to search it on Facebook. And if you have a older photo of someone, then you will know something about him/her. So give it a try using ...

The only way I can imagine is by creating a Facebook application like one of these: A custom tab https://www.socialtools.me/custom-tab-on-facebook A promotional coupon https://www.socialtools.me/promotional-coupon-on-facebook These are free for use the first time, and if you don't have a lot of fans (< 300), are always free.

Go to facebook.com/help and file a report You intentionally entered a wrong birthday that you now cannot remember With 2, you can file a report but you set yourself up for a catch 22 since the whole point of the exercise is to confirm your identity, a real identity to which you agreed to in Facebook TOS.

I read a question on Information Security about how Facebook could know recommendations of friends by just a phone number. The answer to that question explicitly details that the more probable scenario is one in which the friends of the phone contact shared the information to Facebook. So let's start there. Let's assume a phone number is in a contact ...

You cannot claim a topic. Any auto generated information from Wikipedia is a topic. If the page was auto generated by other means then yes you can claim it. You can just set the Official Page to yours.
