Users used to be able to choose who could see their profile photo, about and Last seen status, but that's no longer the case. Everyone, my contacts, and nobody were the choices. The fourth option is called "My contacts except..." and it allows you to exclude specific people in your contacts from seeing your profile photo. You won't be able to see their Last seen status if you choose to hide it.
