Hide Your Facebook Status From Specific Friends

Editor’s Note: This great guest post was written by Jeffery Williams, owner of Williams Tech Consulting in San Francisco.

Have you ever been in the situation where you wanted to post a status update, but didn’t want everyone on your friend list to see it?  Because of social pressure, there are certain people with whom we cannot just reject friendship on Facebook.  If you’re in that scenario, you will find this little underused Facebook feature very useful.  

1)  Go to Facebook.  Type your status update into the box, but don’t click Share!  Click the box next to Share.  When the drop down menu appears, click customize.

2)  When the box comes up, you can very easily customize who can and cannot see that particular status update, and if you want, you can make that your default setting for status updates.  Pretty handy, huh?

This is one of those features that most people just do not notice, and it’s very useful.
