Description: Show or Hide your Mobile number on Facebook by the Privacy Setting. Show phone no. to specific friends or friend lists on Facebook.

Do you want to show your mobile number to specific friends on Facebook? You can do whatever you want to hide with the privacy settings. I am already on some other social networking sites, all are awesome, but if we talk about the privacy, Facebook is the best. Facebook allows you to hide any personal information to users including your friends. You can also read my previous post about the privacy that will hide your Facebook profile from search engines. In this post, I will show you the way by which you can hide your mobile number from Facebook for specific friends and lists or showing your mobile number to the same. There are so many companies that collect user's mobile no. and uses it for third party advertisement. You are already getting the ads from your network operator. For your network operator, you can easily use DND (do not disturb) service. If you are showing your mobile no. publicly on Facebook, then your mobile no. can easily be caught by the companies, and you would get unwanted ads. Therefore, here is how to hide mobile number on Facebook.
