Why Should You Clean Up Your Facebook Profile?
You should clean up your profile for the following reasons:
- It’s possible that your profile picture and cover photo are out of date.
- You can have people on your Friends List with whom you no longer want to associate.
- It’s possible that the details in your About section are outdated.
- The details in the Intro section on the front of your profile might be out of date.
- On your timeline, you can see insignificant status updates/shares, posts that other people have tagged you in, or posts from friends.
- You can have an excessive number of insignificant images in your Photos section.
- It’s possible that your privacy settings could be tighter.
- You may be receiving an excessive number of irrelevant alerts.
Consider some of the following clean-up tips to make your profile look as good as new and to remove any unnecessary or outdated information:
Make a change to your profile photo and cover photo.
When anyone visits your Facebook page, the first two things they see are your profile picture and cover photo. If either or both are out of date, replace them with new ones that are high-quality and pleasing to the eye. Changing your profile picture or cover photo often appears in your friends’ news feeds, reminding them that you’re still interested in Facebook and potentially encouraging them to visit your profile.

Irrelevant Friends should be unfriended or unfollowed.
If your news feed is clogged with updates from people you don’t know or care for, it’s time to consider unfriending or at the very least unfollowing any of them. By deleting messages from people you don’t want or need to see from your Friends List, you can help streamline your news feed.
Update your ‘About’ information on Facebook.
When was the last time you looked at your Facebook profile’s About section? Friends will see where you work or went to school, where you live, your contact details, personal information (such as your birthday), relationship status, and other things on this list.
When you last updated this section of your profile, you might have changed jobs, moved, or started a new relationship. Consider removing out-of-date information and replacing it with fresh, relevant information.
Your intro section should be updated.
Your profile’s Intro section is a small, public version of your About section that appears beneath your picture. You should include a brief profile, up to nine featured images, links to your website or social media accounts, and any other information that you’ve made public.
If you changed your About information in the previous phase, your Intro section should represent those changes as well. The bio and featured images are the only other two pieces of information you need to update here.
