Facebook allows users to display status updates, photographs and existing friendships on their walls. While some use Facebook to show off to the world, others opt for a low profile, which is where privacy settings come into play. While you may not have instant access to someone's wall on Facebook, if you're willing to request to add them as a friend, you'll typically be free to view it once the friendship is confirmed.
