I think there is no need to tell about facebook. so better to start on point, here i  am sharing the top 9 tricks which will increase your profile privacy.
Step 1 Protecting Profile Information
Using Friend Lists is one of the best and easiest ways to control who sees what on your Facebook profile. It’s saves time compared to setting preferences with individual friends.
1.  Click on Account in the top right-hand corner.
2.  Choose Privacy Settings.
3.  Select Customize Settings.
4.  Click on the drop-down menu next to each option you want to change, then select Customize.
5.  In the drop-down menu under Make this visible to, select Specific People, then type in the name of your Friend List. Then, click Save Setting.There’s a lot of information you may want to protect, like your posts, bio, places you check in to, photos you’re tagged in, wall posts, contact address, etc., and Friend Lists makes it easy to control who sees what.
Step 2 Social and Third-Party Ads
If you don’t want your name and profile picture to appear in Facebook’s Social Ads, then you might want to stop it from happening.
1.  Click on Account in the top right-hand corner.
2.  Choose Account Settings.
3.  When in My Account, click on the Facebook Ads tabs at the far right.
4.  Click on Edit third party ad settings.
5.  Select No one from the drop-down list and hit Save Changes.
6.  Click back on the Facebook Ads tab.
7.  Click on Edit social ads setting.
8.  Select No one from the drop-down list and hit Save Changes.
Step 3 Instant Personalization
The Instant Personalization feature shares your personal data with not only Facebook, but non-Facebook partner sites,  like Bing, Rotten Tomatoes, Pandora and Yelp. To stop this, you need to disable it, if not already done.
1.  Click on Account in the top right-hand corner.
2.  Choose Privacy Settings.
3.  Click on Edit your settings in the bottom left, under Apps and Websites.
4.  Click on Edit Settings for Instant Personalization.
5.  Un-check the box that says Enable instant personalization on partner websites.
Step 4 Contact Information
Sure, you can protect your contact information from certain friends, but what about keeping third-parties away? It might be best to just remove all of your contact info, specifically your phone and address.
1.  Click on the Profile tab in the top right.
2.  Select Info underneath your profile picture.
3.  Click on Edit inside the Contact Information section.
4.  Make sure all of your Phone and Address information is blank and click the Save Changes.
Step 5 Facebook Search
If your profile is opted in for Facebook Search, then everyone can access your profile page, albeit without total access.
Regardless of your privacy settings, it’s best to make yourself invisible to everyone with Internet access.
1.  Click on the Account tab.
2.  Choose Privacy Settings from the drop-down menu.
3.  In the Connecting on Facebook section at the top, click on View Settings.
4.  By Search for you on Facebook, choose Friends Only from the drop-down menu.
Step 6 Public Search
Not only can people search for you on Facebook, but they can search for you via Google, Bing and other search engines.
Make sure to turn off Public Search if you don’t want to be seen outside of Facebook.
1.  Click on the Account tab.
2.  Choose Privacy Settings.
3.  Click on Edit your settings in the bottom left, under Apps and Websites.
4.  Find Public search and click on Edit Settings.
5. Un-check the box that says Enable public search.
NOTE: If you set Facebook Search to Friends Only in Step 5, then Public Search will automatically be disabled.
You must have Facebook Search set to Everyone in order to enable or disable Public Search manually.
Step 7 Application Access
If you have third-party apps connected to your Facebook (most of you will), it’s time to get rid of the ones you’re not using,
or ones you deem mistrustful.
1.  Click on the Account tab.
2.  Choose Privacy Settings.
3.  Click on Edit your settings in the bottom left, under Apps and Websites.
4.  Find the Apps you use section.
A.  Turn of all platform apps will do just that. But who wants to get rid of all their apps?
B.  The other two choices are Remove unwanted or spammy apps and Edit Settings. Both do the same thing.
5.  Click on Remove or Edit Settings and find the app you want to remove or edit.
6.  Click Edit Settings or just hit the X to remove the app altogether.
NOTE: Most options are required by apps, but some you can remove, like posting to your wall. If you don’t like what they have required access to, then simply hit Remove app. Below is an example of what one application has access to.
Step 8 Info Accessible in Apps
Some friends may be using the same apps that you do, which means they can see more of you when they’re using those apps.
If you don’t want to share a lot of information with your friends, then you can change some of the settings.
1.  Click on the Account tab.
2.  Choose Privacy Settings.
3.  Click on Edit your settings in the bottom left, under Apps and Websites.
4.  Click Edit Settings from the Info accessible through your friends section.
5.  Select what information you want available to applications, games and websites when your
friends use them. Hit Save Changes.
Step 9 Browse Safely
Protect your browsing experience by preventing hackers access to your information when on a public network connection.
Make sure to set up Secure Browsing (https) and login alerts.
1.  Click on the Account tab.
2.  Choose Account Settings.
3.  Click Change next to Account Security.
4. Check the box for Secure Browsing (https). Click Save.
NOTE: Whenever you use a Facebook page or third-party app that takes you out of secure browsing, and you allow it, it will disable it completely and you’ll have to go back and reset your preferences. Don’t assume it will automatically switch back.
When in Account Security, you can also change settings for Login Approvals and Login Notifications and check your recent Login Activity.
