Along with <a href="lj://faq/202" title="FAQ #202: [[faqtitle:202]]">standard search methods</a>, users can search the <a href="">Directory</a> to find other users or communities. These searches can include age, friends, interests, location, etc.

By default, all LiveJournal users are listed in the Directory, but users without access to the Directory cannot see their own listings. You can remove yourself from the Directory searches at the <a href="">Edit Profile</a> page, by unchecking the "Show your location to other users" option (to be removed from location searches) or selecting "Do not display" for the "Birthday display options" option (to be removed from age searches).
