Facebook is today's leading digital square, the space where we can all share ideas, opinions and comments for anything we want. Over the years, however, this social network has expanded dramatically, with more than a billion subscribers, with countless often hidden functions which is also difficult to enclose in a single article.
The majority of these Facebook tricks have already been examined in other articles, so in this episode we basically do a nice summary with the best, which they mostly talk about hidden pages, secret options to edit and little-known ways to better customize your profile and news flow.
1) Read hidden messages received on Facebook
Most people do not know that not only those received from friends are collected in the message box, but also those received from non-friends, for which there is no notification and which remain hidden. It is therefore worthwhile, if it has never been done before, to take a look at these messages to see if we have been joined by some old friends or if there is something interesting or funny.
Then open the messages page on the Facebook site and click, at the top left, on Message requests and on More> With filters.
2) Check active connections to Facebook
From the account settings, in the Security section, you can check the "devices from which you are logged in" to be able to check if someone is using our account and, possibly, to close the connection from other computers that may be used.
From the same settings section, you can also check from where and how we connected to Facebook.
3) With fantastic makeup it is possible see hidden photos on Facebook of everyone, even non-friends, which are collected on a special hidden page.
4) See contacts and numbers shared on Facebook, even of non-subscribers.
On a special page you can see all the numbers that the Facebook Messenger app installed on the mobile has extracted from the phone book in an attempt to find registered friends. These numbers are collected on a private page and can be erased forever.
5) Use secret emojis
You can leave comments with the classic Moji or the secret ones.
In another article, all the Facebook "Emoji" faces to be written also in posts and comments.
6) Transfer files with Facebook
Not everyone knows that Facebook allows you to exchange files with friends through its chat, albeit with some limitations.
7) See news from our best friends first
While the news flow of the news page in Facebook is controlled by an algorithm, it is still possible to customize how these are sorted by specifying which friends and which pages are most important to us, whose posts we want to appear before those published by others.
Also, it's worth cleaning up Facebook by hiding news from boring sites, groups, apps, pages, and friends
8) Find out how Facebook knows all our preferences
This is a special private page where you can check how Facebook sees us, that is what we like and the profile that appears to advertisers.
It is also possible to prevent Facebook from seeing the history of the sites visited.
9) Change profile picture in a special way
For the profile photo, Facebook has added some possibilities to make yourself more original and, in particular, it allows you to set a temporary profile photo and use a video instead of the profile picture.
10 ) Using Facebook as a blog
If you want to write long posts and keep them organized so you can find them easily as you would with a blog, you can use the not too well known Facebook Notes feature.
11 ) Save news and links on Facebook
Every time you come across something interesting you can put the "like", but if you want to keep a link or a post that you want to read calmly or that you want to keep, you can save it with the special, a little hidden, save button.
As seen in another article, it is very easy to download videos from Facebook on PC and mobile.
12 ) See details for each friendship
For each friend, there is a special page that shows us what we have in common: friends, photos, posts, places visited and other things.
As I have already pointed out, in another article it is explained how to find the Facebook friendship pages.
13 ) PC chat tricks
Among the best tricks for Facebook chat, if used by PC, there are the one for disable confirmation of reading messages to hide Displayed and Is typing in Facebook chat.
Furthermore, even without using extensions, it is possible to hide in order not to be seen online by some users or to remain invisible to everyone
14) Yes, they can invite all friends to an event or to become a fan of a Facebook page using two special extensions from the Chorme and Firefox browsers that enable a button to select all in one click. Per Chrome the extension is Invite All Friends.
15) Program thestatus update on Facebook in a postdated way it means setting the status and saying you want to publish it in the future, in a few hours or a few days.
This can be useful if you want to appear active when in reality you have been offline for some time and then you can program the status update on FAcebook for all the days that you are not planning to use Facebook. It might be helpful, now that I think about it, to update your status to look sick at home while on vacation.
16 ) Facebook backup
To backup the contact list and save their names and email addresses and to save private messages on the computer, there is the function to download messages, address book and data from Faceboook
17 ) Temporarily suspend the profile
If you are tired of being on Facebook, but don't want to lose everything and want to keep the possibility of being able to return to it in the future, you can simply deactivate your Facebook account temporarily.
Alternatively, you can also hide Facebook profile and make yourself invisible
18 ) Can a Facebook account be hacked?
If there was an easy trick for this it would be a bane for our favorite social network.
The linked article, however, shows the most used techniques for stealing accounts and ties closely to the guide on how to protect Facebook and secure the account.
It is not a trick but a new feature the ability to send free SMS from Facebook to friends
19 ) Search on Facebook
Facebook's default search engine is very limited and hardly works for anything other than finding people.
However, if you activate the American version of Facebook, then you can take advantage of that search engine that in the city and in Europe has never been released for legal privacy reasons.
I therefore refer to the guide on how to search on Facebook and find posts, friends and everything.
Conversely, you can also use Facebook without being found or searched for.
20 ) Upload photos to Facebook at maximum quality
When you upload photos to Facebook, the site compresses them by default.
However, there is an option to upload the photos at maximum quality, in order to avoid them being compressed, to make them look more beautiful.
21 ) Facebook to find shops or to buy things
To expand its business, Facebook is gearing up to challenge online shopping giants like Ebay.
Specifically, Facebook groups can be used to buy and sell and it is possible to search for shops and businesses on a Facebook map.
22 ) Add a fixed message and featured photo to your Facebook profile
This is a trick that has been active for about a year, which still few people know, which allows you to create a mini biography and show a permanent photo under the main one of the profile.
23 ) Receive notifications from the Facebook site like the app
This trick is especially useful if you are using the Facebook site on your mobile instead of the application.
24 ) Secret words with animations: kisses, balloons, thumbs
25 ) Leave all Facebook groups and Pages together at once
26 ) Delete all posts and Facebook "Likes" in one click
27 ) Write lists and lists as status on Facebook
28) Yes, it can add a song to listen to on your profile, as seen in another article.
29 ) Lists of interest
Creating lists of interest on Facebook allows you to create special sections in the home to find updates of pages followed or people who have something in common. For example, you can create a technology news interest list and include sites and blogs like bestresourcesnow.com.
30 ) Couple page
If you have set up a romantic relationship with another Facebook user and are therefore engaged or married, then you can open the special page (go to the partner's profile, press the button with three applications and then see friendship details) to see all the photos and news about the couple. The page is the same as that of the normal profile, with the list of news about the couple, photos, mutual friends and events.
31 ) Embedding posts on another website
If you have a blog or website or if you participate in a forum, you can share anyone's status by embedding it like a Youtube video.
This Facebook feature is only available for public posts. The option is visible in the menu that appears by pressing the down arrow to the right of a post. Facebook provides HTML code for you to copy and paste into the webpage to embed the post into.
32 ) Check all the photos in which we are tagged so as not to make them appear on our profile diary.
In the settings it is always important to activate the Facebook tag check to hide any photos that we are not interested in showing from the diary. The option to change is to "check posts where friends tag you before they appear in your diary".
33 ) Communicate in Videochat
Not everyone knows that Facebook can make free video calls from your PC.
34 ) Schedule a meeting or special event
Facebook works really well both for creating on Facebook and inviting friends and for organizing private parties or meetings, for birthdays or invitations of various kinds. Since there are almost all friends on Facebook, it really becomes the best tool on the internet to make private invitations to people and communicate to them the day, date and place of a party or even a meeting.
