I want to create a new id in facebook. But the catch is, i want my new facebook id to be invisible to other. This mean, i want other couldn't found my id when they search me, trough name, e-mail address, company, etc. I also don't want them to found me trough searching in my friend facebook friendlist. I want the only way other can find me is by me adding them to my facebook friendlist. Can i actually do this? If i can, then can you tell me how? Thanks

You can go to Account settings and to the Privacy settings. I guess there is an option there that would prevent your friends or anyone from finding your profile whenever they create a search on your name. I guess this is one tool that you can use. But i don't think there is any way for you to prevent them from finding you when they look into your common friend's list of friends, not unless you block them. Hope that was helpful

O I see, so there is actually a way to do this. Yes, you are help me a lot in this. Well, one thing at a time. Although they can still found me trough friendlist, but this is still a good knowledge. And how can you block a person? Did the person that we are blocking know that we are block them? Thanks

I am not sure if blocking someone will notify the person you blocked. Although I doubt this because even deleting friends or ignoring their friend request does not offer notification. So, blocking someone will leave them unaware that you have blocked them already.

Ok, thanks for your information. I decide then i will apply privacy option and then block a certain people which i don't want them to find out that i make a new facebook id. Well, i think that is my solution for being invisible. Thanks for your response.

I'm not sure there is any way you can make your account invisible. If you don't want to be found when they make a search about you, the only solution I can give you is to use a different name or email address. And I don't think it's possible for you not to be found on their friend's list unless again, you will change your name and your primary pic. With that, they won't even know that was you. But yeah, you're still no invisible. By changing your privacy settings, your name and email address can still be found when they search you. However, you have an option to limit the information you will show to the people outside your network of friends. So if they are not your friends, the only visible information for them is your primary pic, ability to send you messages and your list of friends, including mutual friends.

Ok, thanks for your information. I think there is actually a way so people couldn't find me with privacy setting. But they do will find me with searching into my friendlist. So i decide to block a few people that i really don't want then to know that i have another facebook id. Thanks

As far as I know, if I am not wrong, it is difficult to creat a invisible account in Facebook. In fact, if you want to be a member of Facebook, you must have accepted their rules, which let you share your pictures, keep in touch with your friends. When people want to look for your account, they can find your information easily. You know, as a popular social networking website, Facebook is a community of acquaintances, you have no choice but to make your information public. If you want to have a try, perhaps you can contact Facebook to seek help.
