Well, you will be glad to know that you can actually hide the posts of all these annoying Facebook friends from your wall without them knowing it.
Read on to learn this simple trick.
How to Hide/ Block Facebook Friends without Unfriending Them?
Whenever you see a post from a person whose status updates you want to stop getting, click the small downward pointing arrow at the upper right hand corner of that particular update.
As you click on that arrow, you will see a drop down menu.
Select “I don’t want to see this”.
Also, make sure you “Unfollow” the person in question.
Doing so makes sure that you will not GET any more status updates from the person whose status you have marked in this manner.
They will continue to see YOUR status updates even after you have ‘unfollowed’ them and told Facebook that you don’t want posts similar to the ones you just marked.
If you further want to disable this person from sending you any messages in future, you can do that too.
If you do go ahead with that as well, the person thus specified by you will virtually cease to exist for you on Facebook and you will not get any status updates from him/ her in your Newsfeed nor any messages from them in future without their knowing so.
Since they continue to get YOUR status updates and news about your activities, they will not be able to know that you have ‘blocked’ them!!
To stop getting messages from such friends on Facebook list, go to the Chat Options at the lower right hand corner of your Facebook page and click on this star:
Select “Advanced Options” from the drop down menu.
Fill in the name of the unwanted friends here.
And you’re done!
By following these simple steps, you can hide certain people on your Friends list without unfriending them.
