Facebook Timeline: How to hide all your old posts from automatically going Public

With the new timeline being forced upon everybody, Facebook has suddenly decided that all your old posts since account creation will become public. They failed to mention that fact to the general public. 

Follow these steps to hide your information and media from the general public:

  • Go to “Privacy Settings” found in the drop down menu when you click on the small arrow in the upper right hand of your screen.


Manage post visibilty

  • Click the “Limit Old Posts” button.


There! Now you have you privacy set so only your friends can see all your old posts. Your other option is to manually hide each and every post ever published from your profile. 

Thank you facebook for making all our lives harder.

    can be shielded from entering the tissue of the lungs and nasal passages, thus reducing the affects of hay fever and asthma. If these organisms survive the journey through your digestive tract then they will start feeding in there. Consuming large amounts of alcohol and caffeine will also lead to a case of leaky gut syndrome.

    Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    I blog quite often and I truly appreciate your information. The article has really peaked my interest. I’m going to take a note of your site and keep checking for new details about once per week. I opted in for your RSS feed too.
