    This will work only for restricted friends..
    For persons that you have blocked, this will not work since the names of friends whom you have not done un-friend and are in your restricted list will only appear..

    A ‘Find us on Facebook’ icon would be ideal to let your visitors know where to contact you on Facebook, and by extension, any interactions
    they make with your page will be communicated to their friends, giving you some useful publicity.
    It is always recommended to put the best shot for the Facebook cover photos, as it is the major catch of the page.
    The tabs will be in vertical order on the left of the page
    to start with.

    It’s so crazy that facebook is blocked in so many countries. It always frustrates me when traveling. Thanks to arcvpn for making it easy to unblock blocked websites.
