as my ex is lurking around lately (ive not accepted his friend request as hes a nutter!!). I don't want him to look at my photos or any posts on my wall.

How do i make my fb to the public with just my profile photo and more or less that's it.

(ive gone through the questions and still cant find what i want).

Firstly block your ex.

Then go on to privacy and change the settings there so no one can see your wall etc unless they are friends with you.

Where it says who can send you friend requests change this to either no one I think there is that option or just friends of friends (assuming you have no shared friends with your ex).

I think you can change "who can search for me on facebook" there too to make it only friends of friends so he won't be able to search for you unless he is already friends with someone else on your list.

You can untag yourself. Your friends may have photos set to public so you can alter your setting so that you cannot be tagged.

ok....i got that bit of needing to untag myself. sad as they are memories for me to look at them now and again - my wedding day and other stuff.

what about the 5 photos as do i need to hide it from "my timeline"??

ah haaa.....ive untagged myself on the photos but still able to see them whenever i wants too so they arent deleted but just hiding on my fb....

Untagging doesn't delete them, no, it just removes your name from them.

Just set everything to 'friends only' and don't allow photo tagging.
