How to Block Your Wall on Facebook From a Friend

By Chris Miksen

Blocking a friend from seeing your Facebook wall is a nice way of remaining friends with the person, but not allowing her to see anything you post to Facebook. Sometimes you don't want a family member to see an embarrassing wall post or you want to block an annoying friend who constantly comments on your status updates; whatever the case, you can block a specific person from seeing your wall.

Step 1

Visit and sign into your profile. Click "Account" at the top right of your profile screen.

Step 2

Click "Privacy Settings." Click the "Custom" button and then click "Customize settings."

Step 3

Click the current privacy settings next to "Posts by me." Your current privacy setting is either "Everyone," "Friends of friends" or "Friends only." Click "Customize."

Step 4

Type the name of the person you wish to block from setting your wall in the "These people" text box under "Hide from." Click "Save Setting."

Tips & Warnings

  • You can always go back and remove the person from the exception list.
