Control who can see my friends list on Facebook Timeline

There are many reasons you might want to do this on Facebook. Many teens have been leaving Facebook and heading to Twitter citing privacy concerns. Now that their parents, uncles, aunts and grandparents have been sending them friend requests. Their space has slowing been slipping away online. Not to worry, the new Timeline does have some good to it and one of them is the ability to hide your friends list from certain people, or make it public and available to everyone or just visible to your friends. You can also make it visible to once certain lists you have like your business list or close friends list, you get to decide and choose.
