How To Make Your Facebook Public

Facebook, the world’s most popular social networking site, offers diverse features for customizing your personal profile. If you wish to share your profile with a wider audience, you may want to make your Facebook public. In this blog post, we will walk you through the step-by-step instructions on how to do just that.

Understanding Public Profile on Facebook

Before we delve into the steps, it’s essential to understand what a public profile on Facebook means. When your Facebook profile is public, anyone, including people off of Facebook, can see your posts, your friends list, your likes, and other personal details you’ve made visible.

Steps to Make Your Facebook Public

Here’s how you can make your Facebook profile visible to the public.

Step 1: Access Facebook Settings

Login to your Facebook account, click on the downward arrow at the top right corner of the page, and select Settings & Privacy followed by Settings.

Step 2: Adjust Privacy Settings

In the left column, click on Privacy. Now, in the Your Activity section, click on Edit next to the line that says Who can see your future posts? and select Public.

Step 3: Modify Timeline and Tagging Settings

On the left, you will see an option for Timeline and Tagging. Click on it, and under the section Who can see things on my timeline?, change the setting to Public for both options.


That’s all there is to it. You’ve now made your Facebook profile public. Remember, being open on social media comes with its own set of pros and cons. While it allows for more connectivity and online presence, it might also expose you to unwanted attention or privacy risks. Therefore, always be vigilant and mindful of the content you post online.
