Edit your Facebook page to Show Information you Want to Show

Since Facebook has changed its UI, it has confused some on how to take control of the information that shows on their profile page.  One of the easiest places that changes can be made is to the information on the left (under your profile picture) on your profile page.  In your profile page, the upper-left is your profile picture followed by your image information.

Here are the required boxes below:

Phrase box.  This can be edited simply by clicking the pencil, in the upper-right-hand corner of the box, and you can adjust what it says.pencil

Information Box.  You again can control this information by clicking the pencil and then you can check/uncheck the information that appears in that box.


Friends Box.  You can use the pencil to add the amount of friends that are shown, tell Facebook who can view the friends in that box and, if you have some friends that you are particularly proud of, you can force Facebook to only display those by typing their names in the space provided.


Voluntary boxes:

Below the friends box are elements whose options are to move to your Boxes tab or leave where they are by clicking the pencil. 

You can move any of the boxes, by left-clicking it and dragging it to where you would like it to go (staying within the left column - Facebook hasn't given you that much control).
