Is hiding my friendlist on Facebook a bad sign for HR?

For a while, I've been wondering on what do I have to do to avoid appearing unprofessional on my Facebook profile—I have quite a good reason to think about it.

Within this issue, I wonder about my friends. Seeing what kind of people do I have contact with may influence, how the HR employees view me as a potential member of the company.

On the other hand, I consider my list of friends a part of my privacy; therefore I usually hide it, so only common friends are visible.

A friend of mine told me that hiding stuff from Facebook may imply that I have something to hide, which is not a positive sign for the human resource department. Does it include such a minor case, too?

I have kept my Facebook profile private at all times. There's nothing unprofessional about it. Facebook to me is my social life, outside of work. It is also the reason I don't accept Facebook requests from colleagues.

For professional networking, I use LinkedIn. Any company that wants to know what I do in my spare time and judges me on that, is not a company I would want to work for.

what's your interest
