5 Tricks In Facebook You Should Know About

Facebook hasn’t joined the list of physical needs yet but it has definitely become part of everyday activities. Many of us may consider ourselves as real experts of the world-famous social network. But to tell the truth our achievements are rather modest: there is nothing complicated in adding and tagging friends, creating public groups or sharing photos from weekend. Ready to find out something special about Facebook possibilities? If your answer is “yes”, then read further.

1. Hide-and-Seek

If you are not familiar with curiosity concerning other people’s private live, then you’ve probably never tried surfing Facebook. Meanwhile it’s quite easy to see a full size profile picture of a person who’s not in your friends – despite the fact Facebook doesn’t allow it.

How to do:
– first of all open the timeline of the person of interest
– click on the profile picture with the right button of mouse;
– select “open image in new tab”;
– remove “s160x160/” and “cxx.xx.xx.xx” from the appeared link (URL)
– done!

2. Personal Immunity

As some of us may remember from the high school, “every action has an equal and opposite reaction”. The trick of viewing others’ photos is not an exception. So the next one is how to make your header image unclickable.

How to Do:
– open your albums, then your profile pictures;
– click on your current profile picture;
– choose the privacy setting “only me”;
– done!

3. Tracing Guests

Between questions we ask day to day there is one which is really important. “To be or not to be” is not a trend anymore. “Who visited my Facebook page?” – that is the question. We’ve got an answer:

– open your profile page;
– open the source code of this page by pressing Ctrl+U;
– press Ctrl+F to open search bar;
– find the code {“list”;
– here you’ll find some Facebook IDs – they belong to people who visited your page;
– tip inside of a trick: the former IDs belong to those who visited your page recently;
– to view profiles of users who visited your page insert their ID after the slash into the link www.facebook.com/

4. Grandstand Play

Let’s be honest: we are not interested in everything our friends post. A good person may fall for temptation of oversharing. You know what it means: pointless status updatings, posting tons of similar or boring pictures, reposting old jokes… Removing from friends can be a first step to a very tensed relationship, but thanks to our tips you have an opportunity to settle an affair tactfully:

– choose any of an oversharer’s status updates and click the down arrow on the upper right side of it;
– click “unfollow” and you’ll never receive updates from this person without ruining your friendship or whatever it is!

5. “Can you imagine?!!”

The last secret is a funny and easy way to pull your friend’s leg. Insert this link http://facebook.com/profile.php?=73322363 somewhere on status, message or comment with an unexpextable (or maybe even shocking) description. The trick is that everyone clicking on this link gets redirected to his own page. That’s why you should write something really intriguing like: “OMG, can you imagine this guy can act like this??!” or kind of.
