Your requested friends

Facebook is a great idea for connecting your known and unknown friends around the world. You can send a friend request for accepting your request. Some of them accept your request and some of them may ignore your request. In this case, you need to know that who’s been hanging on your request, right?

It’s very easy to know about them. At the top of the Facebook page, you’ll see a friend request icon. There is a list of suggestion “People you may know”. Just look at the bottom of it there is a link of “See all”. After going to the next page at the top of the page you’ll find the “View sent requests.”

Click on the “View sent requests” there you’ll find all the requests you’ve been sent. Through this feature, you can cancel those requests or can wait for more for accepting your requests.

Which devices are logged into your account?

This feature is very useful for your account security. It happens with everyone that sometimes when you don’t have your personal device, and you sign in to Facebook through your friend’s devices, and after completing your session, you may forget to sign-out.

For logout from other devices, you need to go “setting” there you’ll find “Security and Login.” At the “Security and Login” page the devices you’ve been login in your account all of them will show on this page. Which device you need to remove from login you can remove those devices from here and they will log out or you may log out from all of the sessions at a time with a click of “Log Out of All Sessions.”

Restrict specific friends from seeing your posts

When you’re posting something on your timeline. It can post as public, friends, only me.

Here, “Public” means your posts can see everyone, that means out of your friend list they can also see the posts. “Friends” means who are in your friend lists only they can see your posts. At last “Only me” is for only for you. When you save your posts as “only me” except you none can see your posts.
