There are actually a few ways you can do this.
The first is very straight forward, but may not solve your issue entirely, as you may be asking how to hide your friends from the people that are on your friend's list. This option only helps if you want to hide your friends from those that have stumbled across your profile and are not on your friends list.  If you'd like to hide your friends for this reason, please locate the 'Profile' link under the Privacy tab of your account and click onto the drop down menu labelled 'Friends'. You can then select this to 'Only My Friends'. What this means is that the only people that can view your friends list are your friends that you have added. No outsiders or 'passers by' visiting your page will be able to view your friends list once this option has been selected.
You can also 'create a friends list' and this may be more helpful if you're looking to hide certain friends from certain people, or hide them completely. To do this copy your 'All Friends' list onto a new list and use that list as the list of friends on the Privacy page. Add that new list to the section that allows you to choose 'Who sees my friends?' and put that list in the 'except these people' option. Then, whenever you add a new person, just remember to put them in that file. This should then prevent anyone seeing your friends.

The only way, it seems, of hiding mutual friends on Facebook, is to block them altogether. Facebook will not notify someone that you have blocked them, but neither of you will be able to see the other, and so you will, in effect, be hiding them.

Blocking someone on Facebook is not a permanent thing; if you wish to allow them to see and contact you again you can. However, if you decide to do this, you will not be able to block them for a full 48 hours.

  • How to block somebody on Facebook

Blocking somebody on Facebook could not be easier; once you are logged in you will be able to see a button on the top left of the screen named account. By clicking this, a list of other buttons should become available; the one you need to click on to is called privacy settings.

You should have now reached the privacy setting page. At the bottom of this you will be able to see a little section called block lists. Here you will be able to add or remove people, and as this is what you are after doing, you need to click on it.

All that you have to do from here is add the person's name that you no longer wish to be able to communicate with, and click block. From here on in, neither of you will be able to contact each other in any way, shape, or form, unless you decide to unblock them.

Though Friend list could be hidden from a Facebook user profile page, Friend list and Friend of Friends list under "People You May Know" or Find Friends will NOT be hidden. Privacy of protecting friend list is still threatening.
