Are you really concerned about Facebook privacy? Do you want to hide Facebook posts from certain friends? Or do you want to reveal a particular post to just a few friends in the circle?

Facebook knows how to handle people of different tastes and interests. That’s why it consistently updates the platform with new features and adds powerful privacy controls to better manage your content. In this post, we’ll tell you how to handle posts, status updates on the social site and shows them only to the right people.

We can’t keep the same kind of relationship with all friends on Facebook. Some people may be close to our heart but many others are acquaintances or totally strange for us. So we may not be able to share everything in public. For instance, a travel update or private content. We can share those things either through group conversations or customized posts.

Show or Hide Facebook posts from specific friends

Visit your Facebook profile and enter your message or link in the text box. Once you finished, click the “Public” button at the bottom to get advanced options. Tap More to expand the list.

How to Hide Facebook Posts from Specific Friends

Facebook lets you manage the post visibility in five ways.

Public: Post will be shown to anyone even though they are not in your friend list

Friends: Post will be shown to your friends only

Friends except: Post will hide from some friends chosen

Specific friends: Post will be shown to specific friends only

Only me: No one can view the post except you

If you choose the third or fourth option, it will open a new box where you can choose friends from whom you want to hide Facebook posts. Upon finish, Save changes to go back to the post editing screen. Now you can see that post visibility is changed as per your selection. Hit the “Post” button to publish.

That’s it.
