How can I see my Restricted friends list on Facebook?

How can I see my Restricted friends list on Facebook?
Each time I post, it comes up with "friends except restricted". I have no "restricted" list on the left-hand side of the screen where lists appear.

I did have restricted list ages ago but now I cannot find it.
Here are some of the steps that you need to follow to find it. Note, however, that Facebook frequently changes their User Interface, so these steps may possibly become outdated at some point in the future.
  • Go to the visible lock icon in the upper-right corner, and click See More Settings:


  • Click or tap on the Blocking tab on the left-hand side, then click on the Edit List in the Restricted List section at the very top of the Facebook page:          

You will be able to see a pop-up dialog with everyone that is on your Restricted List on Facebook. You can as well add and remove people from the list through this dialog.

Alternative Method to apply:

I had this problem with my girl-friend, we couldn't figure this out. For us - in early July 2017 - this is how I solved it. (remember, FB changes their UI so often, it's quite difficult to post a lasting fix, but here goes another one) ....
  • On your friend's FB page whose posts you can't see/view, have them logged in to Facebook
  • Have them go to your Facebook profile page
  • Click your Friends button
  • Select or Choose the "Add to another list..."
  • See if the "Restricted" list is selected for any reason ever. If that's the case, then click it again to hopefully take you off the Restricted List.
At least it worked for us. So it should probably work for you. Thank you for reading
