Eversince FB has changed so much about almost everything, I"m beginning to feel it is a mess. But here's what I am so pissed right now, I keep seeing the same faces/ persons in my friends' list. For several days now, the displayed persons are all the same. How come? How about the other friends I have that I want to see? Let me make it clear though, I have nothing against the displayed persons but I am just wondering if there is a way to customized the list of friends to be displayed on my profile.

Hi sweetie. I get that to. Maybe they are working on someting again. You know those people of fb have nothing better to do. I think it's time you and i connect there, don't you think?

Hi, sweetie.:-) Didn't I once pm you that I am dying to be one of your FB friends?. I'd be more than glad to connect with you there and see a glimpse of your little blond life. Who knows what these people are cooking? Well just let it ride, then. Saphy, you just have to look for this name JO-AN RETIRO. I'll be looking forward to a deeper friendship with you.

Hi dear! I understand that FB does not show those friends who, though in our list, remain inactive over a period of time. It may be that they only show profiles of our those friends either who are active or we had some interaction in the recent past. I also wish that they should show the entire list on our profile page/wall.

May be our interaction on FB was not so frequent, therefore, I am invisible on your profile page. We need to interact more so that we could see each others' profile page on our respective walls.

You've got a point there, dear. But how can I do that when you are not as busy as me posting something on your wall? My guess, is that you are often busy with your real work. But don't worry, I'm checking your page from time to time, though. We'll be closer ,then, Deepak dear.

Hello there again, dear. I can no longer see your profile picture in my profile page,as well as some of my friends that though I seldom interact with but still I'd glad to check every now and then.... But you could be right, that maybe the basis of FB for displaying or not displaying certain people in our list. How I wish we can customize this just like before.

i also don't find so much irritating new features on fb. maybe we just have to be familiar with those new additions and updates. with the friends' posts, you can select to choose how fb will notify you with friends' on friends/subscription when you hover over those buttons, a selection will drop down.

Hello Femme, I don't mind seeing the same faces on facebook, but what irritates me is that they don't chat with you and thinks you're invisible. I know they are online but only a few people would know if they are online and still use to put offline status. In my experience, am more active now in FB but not looking for messages but because of an online game., which i am currently addicted to.

Hi, Knight. How have you been. I gather from your page that you have been quite occupied lately. Must be the new game that you are so addicted to right now.:-) I think I am guilty of the things you said here about some people. LOL. With the latest FB features, I don't bother to check how things really work. I just read and comment if I am interested. Well, I don't want to chat there because it becomes chaotic when I put an online status. I don't want to be rude by ignoring all the chat messages that keep on popping up (as if, ang dami. LOL) . There, I'm sorry but I am guilty. Have fun, Knight, always.

I don't see too much wrong with the new FaceBook layout. But I can agree with the friends on display. I also like the idea you have about customizing the friend list to show the ones that you interact with mostly. But, even FaceBook has to change to keep up with changing times.

Hello, Inertia. How are you, dear? I'm glad to see you here. Change is good and you are right, we have to embrace it in order to keep up with the fast pacing life. But., this is something not one of those good changes. sometimes, being simple is the best way to do things. Making things complicated to make it looks like really high tech, could be stressful, especially to those who are not tech savvy at all. But, we'll see what it is going to be next. Hopefully, something more cheerful.

I am glad to see you also. I do understand what you mean. I myself are a fan of simplicity. But, I believe that if FaceBook gets lots of flak from this change, they will come up with something more simple. However, there are lots of younger people that are really into technology and to them it is simple enough. Also, some of these changes might not be as hard as we think they are, until we understand them and get used to them.

I am not sure about that but some kind of way I took it off my page so its back to the old way when it shows me who is online.

Hello. Thank you for dropping by. Facebook's new features really had me confused about somethings. I do not understand how they chose the people who will appear on our friend's list but I love the old one when you can still customize who do you want to display or to hide. I have to experiment more further on the features and see how it works for my convenience.

Oh... that is really sad for me. I did try changing the settings to English (UK) but it did not change a thing. Still, I'm seeing the same persons all the time. I think I have to give up and hopefully one day facebook will figure out another setting that will work better , especially about friends' features, that the current setting. Thanks, anyway for trying to help , Tyleika.

Yeah I think now you spend more time trying to get things back to how you like them other than talking to friends. Wish I could help you but I don't remember what I did.
