How to Hide Facebook Post from One or Specific Friends

Sometimes we don’t want some people to see our Facebook post. But if you set the privacy of the post to friends then all your friends would be able to see that post. Our friends list usually consist of family members, evil peoples (like Boss, Clients, and Ex-girlfriends) and hi-bye buddies.

Maybe you want to roast your Boss or post some naughty stuff without embarrassing yourself in front of your family members. If you are in such a situation where you want to hide the post from some specific people then this article is for you.

Hide Facebook Post from Specific People

  • First of all login to your Facebook account and write the status which you want to update.
  • Once you’re done click the Public button which is to the left of the Post button and click on More Options.
