Where are my links on my new Facebook profile?


Share on LinkedIn

If you have gotten the new Facebook Profile you will see one major item is missing – the Links tab! This used to be a place where someone could visit their friend’s wall and see items they have posted whether it was an article, a youtube video or a blog post. There are no more Links accessible on the profile other than the items most recently posted on the wall. So where did they go? How can my friends see my links?

The above video shows you that in order to access friends’ links, you need to first go to the Home page on Facebook, and then find the Links bookmark on the left sidebar. From there you will get a feed of your friends’ links, or you can click to see My Links, or back to My Friends Links. Additionally you can use the link search box to type in a specific friend’s name to get a feed of just that one friend’s links. Sigh. This is a lot more work than it needs to be!

By the way, if you didn’t know this already you can adjust or “hide” which items show up in your sidebar bookmarks. In the video you will see I have many application bookmarks. After I made the video I decided to clear the clutter since I don’t need to access them all. Just click on the little tiny X next to each one you want to hide. If you click “more” you can see the link to See Hidden, and decide to add them back in if you want later.

Do you browse your friends’ links often? I find a lot of cool stuff when I do!
