    hey guys, the friends lists privacy update isnt working properly. when you use internet explorer and hide your friends lists by unclicking the box to make ur friends viewable to only friends, when a non-friend clicks on your profile, if they share a mutual friend with u and they click “see all” then everyone on the friends lists shows up to this stranger. its the samewith firefox except when u click on mutual friends “view all” only shows up mutual friends but when u click “see all mutual friends in a new window” then all friends hidden from strangers shows up. i suggest you re-write this article and write to facebook so that users are not tricked into thinking friends lists are private. thank you
