How to remove Add Friend Button and Add subscribe button in Facebook
Facebook - the most popular social networking of this day. I know you all agree with me. Most people and company as well are already been using Facebook to promote, socialize, chat and play games.
I'm one of the fan of Facebook. I used it as a tool to communicate with my family and love ones. But recently I received so much friend request notification and I can't even handle or I don't have time to confirm or reject those notification.
So I decided to limit those who can send request to me to be their friend. I manage to do some changes on my privacy setting.
Remove Add Friend button
So let start with the changes to remove "Add Friend" button.
To see what button that you are currently using you can preview your profile.
How to do it:
- On your "Profile" click the small icon with drop down beside the activity log, click "view as"
Refer on the screenshot below.
Looking at the preview of my sample Profile on top, no 2 as you can see there are two buttons that I am using. the "Add Friend" and "Subscribe".
Now let start removing the "Add Friend" button.
- Click on Privacy shortcuts button (Beside "HOME")
- Click "who can contact me?"
- Then on "who can send me friend request?"
- Choose "Friends of Friends"
You can refer on the screenshot below.
Were done. Now see the preview of your profile again to see if the "Add Friend" button has been removed.
Now looking at the preview of my profile I only have "Subscribe" button and the "Add Friend" button was removed.
Note: Removing "Add Friend" button is not totally removing it, you just made a restriction who can send you a friend request. In this case only "friends of friends" can send you friend request not "everyone".
If in case you don't have "Subscribe" button on your profile just enable it.
How to do it: Go to
- Account setting --> Subscriber (on the left corner) --> check "Allow Subscriber".
That's the end of my tutorial. I hope it helps you.
