While editing your profile on the desktop, go to "Details About You" under "About" to get started. You can also add a nickname or maiden name for yourself to display with your profile.

Know the distinction between a "friend" and a "follower" on Facebook.

There are two ways you can connect with someone on Facebook: by becoming friends with them, and by following them. 
Being friends means that you and the other person have approved the connection and likely know each other, while following an account means that the person hasn't added you back as a friend.
When someone follows you, they'll only see posts you share publicly. You can turn off the ability for people to follow your account at any time from the "Followers" section of your account settings.

When you share a post, you can choose to hide it from specific people.

Your Facebook posts can be shared with your friends, friends and friends of friends, or anyone who views your profile. 
You can select these sharing options on a case-by-case basis from the drop-down menu at the top right of a post. On the mobile app, select "Edit Privacy" and select one of the options. From the desktop, just click the little friends or globe icon next to a post's time stamp.

See what your profile looks like to people who aren't your friends.

This is handy for seeing what on your profile is visible to others, including individual friends you may have hidden certain information from in the past.
When you're logged into Facebook on the desktop website, go to your profile, click the ellipsis and then "View as..."

Hide your list of friends from everyone but you.

If for some reason you don't want people seeing who you're friends with, you can hide the list entirely.
From your friends list on the desktop, click the "Manage" pen icon on the right and then "Edit Privacy." Then you can change who can see your friends list, the people you follow, and your followers.

Hide your relationship-status change from your friends.

While editing your profile under "Family and Relationships," change the privacy filter to "Only Me."

Hide specific photo albums and events on your timeline.

If you have certain photo albums you don't want people seeing, but don't feel like deleting them completely, you can hide them so only you can see them on Facebook. The same goes for events in your life, whether they be relationship changes, new jobs, or whatever.
Just take note of the little gray icon next to a photo album or post. Two little people mean that it can only be seen by your friends, a globe means it's public, and a padlock means only you can see it.

Block people from being able to contact you.

If someone is spamming you with messages or you just want to make sure they can't see your profile, go to their profile page and click on the three dots to the far right. Select "Block."

See everywhere you're logged into Facebook and remotely log out.

From your Security Settings on Facebook's desktop site, the "Where You're Logged In" menu shows active logins and lets you end them.

Get alerted every time a log-in attempt is made for your account.

Facebook Login Alerts and Login Approvals can be enabled under Security Settings in the mobile app and desktop site.

Too many notifications?

It gets better: Notifications you want can be customized on the desktop and your phone separately. Go to the "Notifications" section of your account settings on the desktop and tweak away.

Unsubscribe from notifications for posts you've commented on.

You may not know that you can unsubscribe from activity on any post, which could be a godsend next time you decide to comment on a friend's politically charged opinion.
When you get a notification for a comment or like on a post on Facebook's desktop site, click the "X" to the right of the notification and then "Turn off."
The reverse is also true. You can turn on notifications for activity on any post from the right drop-down arrow.

Turn off birthday reminder notifications.

If you're sick of Facebook notifying you about friends' birthdays every day, you can turn the notifications off.
Go to the notifications tab in your account settings and turn the birthdays option 0ff.

Get a notification every time a specific person posts something.

If you want to keep tabs on someone's Facebook activity, you can get alerted every time they share something. Just click the "Friends" drop-down menu from their profile on Facebook's desktop site and select "Get Notifications."

This takes stalking to the next level: You can search for posts liked or commented on by one of your friends.

Search for specific keywords and topics, not just profiles and pages.

Everything that's publicly shared on the social network is searchable, which means that if you search for something like "James Bond" or "iPhone 8," you'll see related posts from news sources, friends, and other pages.

Make lists to separate groups of people you're friends with, like school friends and work colleagues.

Designating groups within your list of friends can be useful to filter between what everyone is talking about in your News Feed. For instance, you may want to see what everyone from your hometown is sharing or just your friends from college.

Give yourself a short bio.

Facebook lets you create a short bio for yourself that sits above your other profile information, such as city, work, and relationship status.
You can edit it at any time from your profile on the desktop site and mobile app.
Pro tip: Make your bio completely out of emojis.

Edit a post or comment.

To edit or delete a comment from the Facebook mobile app, tap and hold on the comment.
