    The easiest way is to just "hide" their posts. Scroll your curser over the right side of one of their posts and an "X" will appear, click on it and it will give you the option of hiding that post or all of their posts.

    Hope that helps.

    Put your curser over to the right side of their post on your wall....along the top....and a box will come up...it needs to be even with the top line of their post. Click on the square and you will have choices. You can remove their posts that way. It is also the way to remove a post that you are not interested in seeing even if you do like the person. Their next post will show. I use it to get rid of all the utube videos everyone wants to 'share' with me. If I want to listen to music I will turn on the radio!! But I don't want to defriend them.....just their music.

    Yep. I use it to get rid of random posts from pages I liked before I realized they are parasites. And I do the same with people who insist upon posting politics, religion and those ridiculous polls.

    Do I really care what color tile you choose for you bathroom? NO! 65,000 people have allegedly picked it for you, you sure as heck don't need my opinion. Most of those polls are fake crapola from fb, btw.

    Hiya, Red! [​IMG]

    If I like a page for a contest, I unlike it when it's over. Otherwise I am pretty careful about what I like. I like Deal Seeking Mom ALOT!!!! Those are welcome on my wall..... She posts some awesome coupons! The latest was a $5 off a $20 purchase at CVS. I'll take two please.

    Are they posting on your wall or on your newsfeed? Other people can see what is on your wall- they can't read your newsfeed.
