How to See Recently Added Friends in Facebook

by Marina Martin

Facebook provides a number of ways to sort and categorize your friends, including narrowing your friends list down to "recently interacted" or "recently added." You can see your recently added friends to check out new friends' profiles, add new friends to existing lists or double-check that your latest adds have the correct privacy settings.

Step 1

Log in to Facebook.

Step 2

Click on your name to load your profile page.

Step 3

Click "Friends" on the left side of the screen to bring up your full list of friends.

Step 4

Click the "Edit Friends" button.

Step 5

Change the drop-down field to "Recently Added." All of your recently added friends will appear.
