How to Hide Friends on Facebook

by Barbara J. Feldman on July 19, 2011

Did you know that without unfriending them completely, you can keep certain annoying Facebook friends from cluttering up your wall by hiding them? To hide a friend named Tom (for example), simply move your cursor to the X in the upper right-hand corner of one of his updates, and then click “Hide all by Tom.” To unhide them, go to Edit Options (under Most Recent) and click the X next to their name under “Hide posts from.” For details and screenshots, read Ask Dave Taylor.

    I think that your post is simply hiding the wall posts of such annoying friends. But I guess it also helps to avoid being irritated with those annoying friends.
