How to Edit Your Facebook Timeline Sections

By Carolyn Abram

You can decide which compilation boxes appear on your Facebook Timeline as well as the order they appear as you scroll down. To edit which sections appear and how they show up, hover your mouse over any of the Interest boxes in the left column; then click the blue pencil icon that appears in the upper-right corner of that box.

Say that you do this with the Movies box. In that case, you’ll see this menu of options:

  • Edit Sections: Select this to view a list of all the possible sections you could have on your Timeline. Deselect the ones you don’t want appearing, and click and drag the various sections to change the order of how they appear.

    Make sure you click Save when you’re done.

  • Hide Section: Select this if you want to hide the Movies section from appearing on your Timeline.

  • Activity Log: Click this to be taken to Activity Log and see all activity related to movies that could appear in the Movies box.

  • Edit Privacy: Click this to edit who can see all the movies you have liked on Facebook. The privacy options are the same as for your posts: Public, Friends, Friends Except Acquaintances, Only Me, or a Custom set of people.
