How To Block Facebook Content

[ad]Dear Computer Lady,

How do I get rid of content on my Facebook wall that I don’t want to see?

Thanks, Joyce

Dear Joyce,

It depends on if the content you want to get rid of is from one of your friends or an ad.

If the content says, “Suggested Post” at the top, you are looking at an advertisement. If you click on the down arrow in the upper-right corner of the post, you will see a drop down list with options.

The options on a suggested post allow you to hide the ad and tell Facebook to show you fewer ads like the one you are hiding.

If the post is written by one of your friends, the drop down list will allow you to hide just the post, or to unfollow the person and not see any of their posts.

If your friend has shared a post from another page or person, you will also have the option of hiding all posts from that page or person.

This should allow you to have a little bit of control over what you see on your Facebook wall.
