Selective Facebook Posting

Facebook is a wonderful tool to connect with family and friends, problem is that some of the time we’d like the things we post to only be viewable by certain people.

For example, my wife (fiancée at the time) was trying to collaborate with some mutual Facebook friends on what type of wedding cake to surprise me with. She managed to get opinions, ideas and even a place to buy a cake topper, but after all was said and done I asked:

“How did you manage to post that on Facebook without me seeing it?”

Well, here’s how:

First, get on Facebook and enter your desired post in the “What’s on your mind?” area.

Now, click the lock icon and choose Customize.


In the resulting window, you’ll see options to choose specifically who to make the post visible to, or who to hide the post from. All you need to do to hide a post from someone (or multiple people) is type their name into the box as shown in the graphic below. As long as they are your friend, their name should pop up for you to select.


When you’re done, click Save Setting.

Now all you have to do is click Share and your post will go out to everyone except those you specified!

How useful!
