Facebook has surely been the largest social media platform in the world with over a billion users across the globe. It is getting bigger and bigger every passing day with new updates for security and privacy being launched almost every month. One of these updates launched by Facebook not only includes hiding your friend list from the general public, but it also includes hiding it from your friends. If you have hidden your friend list even from your friends than your friends will only be able to see your mutual friends and vice versa.
However, it might happen that you need to search for a friend’s hidden friend list that he or she has set to private when you are searching for a person who is a friend of your friend.
Hence if you are thinking about searching for your friend’s hidden friend list then you will need to do a Graph Search on Facebook. The criteria for Graph Search is that you and the target profile should have at least one mutual friend so that you can get access to the hidden friend list. Are you finding it difficult? No worries, here is a Graph Search performed by Google Chrome Extension.
