Have you ever wanted to post something on Facebook but don’t want certain people to see it? The answer is yes. You can now hide posts from specific friends or even just hide your profile page. Here are the steps to take in order to do so!
Create a Facebook account for yourself
If you don’t have a Facebook account, make one. It’s quick and easy! Make sure to pick something unique though because if you ever change the name of your profile page, it will update automatically for anyone that was following that profile.
Click on Me Once You’re logged in to Facebook, click on “Me” in the top right corner
Click on the “Friends” Tab Now that you’re on your profile page, click on where it says, Friends. You should see a list of people who are currently following you and vice versa if they were to visit your profile.
Change Profile Privacy Settings Now find where it says “Limit Past Posts”, and change the option from “Friends” to “Only Me”.
Hide Posts from Specific People Now that this is done, find a status update or photo you want to hide and click on the arrow under Share. You will notice it says Friends in the drop-down menu…click on Only Me, then select who you want to see your post by clicking on their names.
See Who is Following You Now hide any post you want and see your profile page! Under the Friends section, it should say “Only me” to let you know that nobody but yourself can see what you’re posting. If anyone else (by their own choice) were to follow your account, they would still be able to see your stuff. This is just a way to limit the number of people that can see your posts on Facebook, depending on who you want to hide it from.
If you don’t want to go through all of this, there is an easier way. Instead of clicking on Friends, click on “Followers”! This will allow only the people who are following your profile to see what you post so it’s a quick and easy fix!
Alternative Solution If you really want to keep things simple, try using a third-party application that will allow you to post whatever you want without broadcasting it to certain people. There are several privacy-protecting apps out there, but the one I use is Stealth Post.
