How to Hide Your Facebook Post From People

Did you know that on Facebook, you can make a post totally invisible to a certain person or group of people?

It's a great privacy option for anyone planning a surprise event, shielding personal photos from nosy acquaintances or even hiding nefarious activity from the boss.

Facebook is the world’s largest social network, with more than 900 million users. Mark Zuckerberg founded Facebook in 2004 while he was attending Harvard University.

    To alter the privacy settings for a post, click on the drop-down menu at the bottom right of the post box.

  • 6. Create a List Option

    If you regularly want to hide posts from a certain group of people, you can set up a list so you don't have to enter each name seperately.
    To set up a list, go to the first person's profile page and click on the "Friends" menu on the bottom right of their cover photo.
    Click "Add to another list."
