1. Go to your profile.

2. Select “Friends” below your cover photo.

3. Toward the right side of the page click the pencil icon next to the “+Find Friends” button.

    Thanks for the good info! Facebook does not make it easy to maintain privacy… frustrating.

    Thank you so much! I feel so silly when I can’t figure this stuff out by myself. I value my friends, but goodness I have quite a few friends who I would not want my employers to know about!

    It does seem difficult to find settings that should be obvious in Facebook. Glad you found it!
