So a user here on the site said they wish they could block family members from their facebook. So I wrote a long ass comment just explaining on how he could block certain people (mom and dad) from certain posts (woah I'm so baked).
This is what I posted:
Ok this is what I did... its a sort of a long road, but its worth it.
If I block my mom from my wall she'll throw a fit like she did to my sister.
I made lists. Lists with the people I want to share specific stuff. I'm going to show you an example and you figure how to do the rest.
Go to Account > edit friends
Look up ur mom and add her to a list. Create a new list for her and the people you do not want to share stuff with. Lets say you named it "nosy family"
This you have to do only once.
The following you will have to do everytime you want to post weed related stuff.
When you go and try posting something theres a little lock icon besides the "share" button. Click on it.
Select the "custom" option. At the bottom of the little window that appears you can write the name of the list. For example:
It will say:
That setting is now saved for the next post. Just the next post. It will go back to default setting.
You see what happened there?
You just posted "I'm so fucking stoned right now, right after having sex on my parent's bed" and "nosy family" will never know.
PD. You can also create a list the other way around. "Smoke friends". and everytime you post something go to custom and select that only "specific people" can see the following post. And select "smoke friends".
PDx2 If you think this is useful, upvote so other users can do this too.
