How to Hide My Activity on Facebook Newsfeed

The Facebook news feed, which appears in the central column of your home page, consists of a list of stories that pertain to your Facebook friends, as well as any Facebook pages you follow. The list is constantly updated to show stories as they post in real time, allowing you to instantly connect and share. Your photos, status updates and wall posts appear live in the news feed as you create them. If you prefer to keep your content out of the feed, you can adjust your privacy settings to restrict other members from seeing it.
