Facebook’s invisible “About Me”

Facebook has new simplified privacy options.

Including one for About Me, which it claims “refers to the About Me description in your profile”.

“About Me”? I don’t remember that.

So I went looking in my profile. It was nowhere to be found. I thought maybe somewhere on the Info tab. Nup, couldn’t see it.

Eventually with some clues from someone on Twitter pointing me to it, I discovered it’s invisible unless you’ve set it to say something. Very helpful.

So to find it, it’s under: Profile / Info tab / Personal Information, then if you can’t see About Me, click the Edit button for Personal Information. Only then will it appear.

And just to confuse things, the “Write something about yourself” box underneath your photo in your Profile is different.

    I think that’s the case with all fields unless you type something in them. This is so Facebook doesn’t pointlessly show empty fields on your profile. In your case, it seems that you left About Me empty.
