Facebook friends in the 6 boxes on timeline

I am curious about the 6 friend boxes on Facebooks timeline. I know there is no way to view who has looked at you. The word is it is friends who you interact with most or if they have gone to you page or stalking you. Im just wondering if anyone here knew why those friends appear in those boxes. It changes often.

They are friends YOU have interacted recently with, appeared in your feed, or had mentions. Not people stalking YOU.

I was at a FB talk where they talked about this.

Interesting...so if some girl checks out my page 5 times a day but doesn't comment or anything she wont appear? Only my interaction with others? Also what are the 8 boxes on the right? Do they mean something else?

There are easier ways of getting a girlfriend, just talk to her and stop stalking each other!

I think that's randomly generated from people you have interacted with. I may be wrong.

I thought it was random too but it seems to coincidentally be the people I interact with most. I wonder why there are 6 boxes of friends above and then 8 boxes of friends to the right.

I think the box with 8 you can remove from your timeline, but the 6 friends box is there to stay unless you change privacy settings so people cant see your friends.

I was using my other FB account that is not connected or friends with my original FB to see how it looks like to the public. When I logged back onto my original FB, my other FB account shows up on the "suggested friends" and "find friends" list.

So my suggestion is that if someone searches for you, it shows up.

It seems random to me... if it's not then I need to deal with a couple of stalkers.

yes, they are stalking you. You should write them a message to ask them to stop.
