Facebook - not display messages from friends

    bigchris Aye lad, I knew you had it in you


    I know a lot of you use facebook a lot more than me - so I thought this might be a good place to ask this question : Is it possible to NOT see messages from a friend ? There is an individual who seems to think they should post something on facebook every 1/2 hour or so ... this causes a problem for me, in that every time I use facebook - all I see is her messages and I often miss other ones from other freinds. I don't want to un-friend this person - I just don't want to read her ( often ) pointless messages.



    p.s. the person in question is NOT on this forum ( but some of you do know her ! )

    Phew! So it's not me masquerading as LinnPR then!

    I'm sure there's a place to delete friends like most of us have been doing most of our short lives! Without getting too philosophical, a lot of people disappear in smoke in buckets of tears. Thanks Bob D!


    ps BTW just heard phone hacking is illegal! Ha!

    Yeah I don't want to delete this person ( as she'd take it far too personal ... and it could have ramifications elsewhere ) ... I just don't want to have her messages filling up my view on facebook !!

    I don't think me - only done 3 links in last 3 days and no status update since Saturday!! I am not as obsessive there as on Twitter. :biggrin:

    I don't like how on fb now others can see your comments to others, even if they are not a friend of the third person themselves, by looking at your profile.

    I tend to use the fb lite version on my mobile, Chris, so I don't get half of the rubbish stuff that you get on the desktop. No pix, so more easy to glance through.

    There is an option to hide posts from certain friends Chris, this may help.

    Hover cursor over the right hand side of her post, click the 'X', and a little window will pop up with various options, 'hide post', 'hide all posts', 'mark as spam' etc...

    hth :)

    Thanks guys ... I think I've hidden her messages .. my facebook newsfeed now looks interesting ... I can see loads of messages from loads of people and not loads from one greedy person !! Cheers.
