Useful Fb tricks for Enhanced Facebook experience:

1. Appear Online Only to Selected Friends:

Facebook chat is one of the coolest and most useful features in FB. My dilemma, however, was how to limit the number of people I chat with every time I log in. I certainly can’t accommodate them all but I don’t want them to feel like I’m rejecting them when I don’t send them a reply. I didn’t know back then that it is possible to appear online only to a few selected friends. A friend of mine actually gave me this idea which I’m sure would be of use to you, too.

Here’s how to do it: 

Go to Chat found at the lower right side of the page and then, click on gear icon and click on advanced settings. A window would pop-up, now in the field which says “Turn on chat for all friends, except..” start adding your friends name, for whom you don’t want to appear online. With this, you now appear completely invisible to them. Try it now.

  • Save

2. Turn off Auto-play of Facebook Videos:

Facebook auto plays videos when ever you are checking the timeline. If you wish to disable the auto-play of videos, you can do that by following these steps.

  • Go to Facebook Settings > Videos
  • Turn off the auto play of Facebook videos.

Disable facebook video Auto play
  • Save

And if you are from a country with slow internet speed, you can also change the default quality to SD from HD.

3. Cool Magic Circles on Facebook:

This is really simple, though I admit I didn’t get this the first time. This cool magic circles appearing on your page is just one of the many secret tricks you’ll find in Facebook. You might want to give this a try.

Here’s how: Press Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Enter key then press up & down.

Now, just in case it doesn’t work on your first try, try reloading your page again by pressing F5 and repeat the process.

4. Use Facebook search like a pro:

Have you experienced looking for someone in Facebook with such difficulty? If yes, then perhaps you might want to try using the Search Box. This is a powerful tool that can help you find your old friends, celebrities, organizations, or your favorite band with no difficulty. Go ahead and be like a pro – click here to learn how.

6 : Changing fonts on Facebook status:

    Is that picture taken from your own Facebook profile? I wonder why there’s a word “barkada” in it. It’s a Filipino word meaning circle of friends. Just curious why there’s word like knowing that you are an indian. 🙂
