  • 2. Change Privacy Settings


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

    This should say “Public” or “Friends,” depending on your default settings.

    Once you’ve clicked, select the “Custom” option.

  • 5. Send it Live


    Once you’ve added the names you want to hide the post from, click “Save changes.”

    Your post will now be invisible to those people — hit “Send” as you usually would to make it live.

  • 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.”
