Facebook - List of friends displayed on a the profile page

Ask a question


Issue


I have a question about the friends displayed on my Facebook profile page (thumbnails). Facebook displays by default 6 pictures. I would like if these people are really drawn at random from your contact list or not.
Can anyone tell me how facebook proceeds for the display list?

Solution


How Facebook determines the friends who are displayed on my profile?

The friends with whom you have the most public interactions appear first on your profile. Interactions include public postings on the wall, comments and events in which you participated
