Just choose "Hide This Post" and then it will give you further options to hide them always.

Thanks! :40beers:


My issue with facebook is that so many people I don't want to communicate with-family members, neighbors, ex-boyfriends, stalkers, perverts, and FSU members all seem to want to to be "friends"...

Were there any repercussions when you said NO to their friend request? ;)


Facebook like Ebay never is changing for the better, only worse.

My glass is always half-empty, too. And then someone comes and fills it up, so I'm afraid I'll spill all over my shirt... And then a few sips later, the glass is half-empty again!!! :( :( :(

I ruined my newsfeed. Right now it's empty which isn't right considering how active my friends are. Anyone know how to fix it so all the posts come back?

I am really starting to dislike facebook. I consistently check my privacy settings to make sure what I want private is private. I checked it a few days ago and now a few posts on my wall are visible to everyone, including people who are not my friends, which I DO NOT like at all. Booo.

You're right. Everyone is on Facebook these days! (http://i52.tinypic.com/15fkh1v.jpg) :drama: :( ;)

Re. wall posts: did you edit your "How you Connect" settings to be friends only?

Re. news feed: I don't know how to fix that. I didn't know you could screw up your news feed. Did you trying asking Facebook's Help Center about getting your news feed back?

Okay, so my photos are set to be seen (with a few exceptions) by Friends only. So how did a friend of a friend manage to like two of my photos? I've been back through my settings and everything is as it should be.

Grrr.

Did you tag your friend in the photos? I'm noticing that I'm seeing a lot of photos lately whereby I'm *not* friends with the person who's album they are in; however, I am friends with the person tagged. In that case, I can only see the pictures that are tagged with my friend, not all the photos in that album. I'm not sure what settings would control this.

The friend is not tagged in the photo; I thought maybe that's what it was as well.

I always have the chat turned off, so no one can tell if I'm on facebook.

I haven't done that yet, but I wonder about people who start chats...but have nothing to say. I refuse to carry a conversation which someone else starts. So it often dies an awkward death! :lol:


Uhm .. yes. Just make it up like I did. :slinkaway

I used a real city and zip (where I lived in high school), but everything else, including my name, is fake. I just wanted to see what Facebook was all about w/o having to actually be on it.

Sometimes when I have to sign up for something which requires a city and a postal code, I'll use Beverly Hills as the city because then I don't have to look up what the postal code is. :D

Facebook announces that I have uploaded photos and I don't know how to change the settings so it will stop. Sometimes people comment on the photos, but I don't remember if the comments originate from Friends or friends of Friends.

It's been a long time since I have uploaded photos, and photos of my family do not appear on my Facebook. Paybacks and all that....

With the new changes on FB, look at your privacy and security settings again and make sure they are the way you want. PeterG-block yourself from chat, or I'll bug you every day. :D
You can make sure that your pics are not visable if you like.
The changes are annoying, but managable.

Did the friend "Share" your photo on her own wall? That would allow her friends to see it.

I have a question about tagging of photos. I thought tagging was about when there is a group photo on someone else's page, and you are in that photo. You tag yourself in that photo so that it appears on your own facebook page.

My question is about people who tag photos of mine in which no one appears (it's a scenic shot, or a picture at an event, etc.). Why do people tag themselves in pictures like this? And sometimes people tag an item in a photo in which I appear. I don't get this, it seems strange to me. Any explanations? :confused:

That is not possible. :smooch:
