Block specific friends on Facebook from seeing your posts, photos etc

We all know how to hide a friends (i hope) posts and games and stuff from your wall as they appear, but have you ever wanted to block one of your friends from viewing what YOU post on THEIR wall? Well you can!


Once logged in, go to your Privacy Settings and access the Custom Settings as I showed you in What can non-friends see on my Facebook page?


Now, if for example you don't want a particular friend to see what you're posting, select the drop down list next to Posts By Me and click on Custom


This will open a new window.You will notice there is a box under the title Hide this from. If you start entering a friends name, you will get a list of users you can chose from.



(Yes, the image above has me blocking myself from me viewing my own posts - better to use me then upset someone who is on my friends list!)


You can enter in as many friends as you like, once done click on the Save Settings button to save your changes and that's it! Every time you post something, the friends listed in the Hide this from list won't see what you have posted.




To undo a friend, go back to the Custom Privacy window and simply click on the x next to the name of the friend you want to start reviewing your posts again





This process can be done for most other items you want to share on Facebook, simply select the Customise option from the drop down next the item you want to edit.
