Facebook has made it in such a way that the way you view your profile is different from how your friends view it, below is how to view your profile as someone else.
When it comes to posting on Facebook, you can never be too cautious. Events and images intended to be shared with friends and family can just as easily be made public. There are settings to prevent this, but checking each and every post to see if it’s set to ‘Private’ is a difficult task.
Fortunately, Facebook allows you to specify which of your uploads are visible to everyone. In this article, we’ll show you how to view your Facebook profile as if you were someone else, giving you more control over what content you make public.
Some may feel it is not important since it’s your account and at least you can see it directly from here, but I can assure you that what others are seeing is far different from what is shown to you on the profile. Just try it using the steps below and see your Facebook profile as someone else, then you will understand what I am saying;
