Facebook: how to hide Stories from some contacts

Facebook app 4gnews

Facebook Stories are one of the most used resources through this social network’s app. Also present on Instagram with the same name, they allow us to share photos and videos for 24 hours before they disappear.

They are fun ways to express ourselves, but if you want to hide the Stories from some contacts on Facebook you can also do it. It is possible to define who sees, and who does not see what you share on Facebook Stories, as you can see next.

Control who sees your Stories on the Facebook app

  • Starts with Open the Facebook app – on Android or iOS
  • Access the Options menu – 3 horizontal lines in the upper right corner (figure 1)

  • Defines the desired privacy profile among the available options
  • You can also take advantage of “Other settings” with user-silenced stories

From figure 5 we have the options that let us hide the stories for some Facebook contacts. Alternatively, we can make the Stories public, or visible to all friends / contacts on this social network, available for 24 hours.

If necessary, to hide someone’s story you just have to select the contact from the list of friends that is displayed by tapping the “Hide the story for someone“. That person will no longer see what you post on Stories.

Alternatively, tap the “Custom“where you can define the group of people who will see your Stories on Facebook and Messenger. They are complementary forms of control provided by the platform to users for a careful management of what they disclose through the application.

So, the next time you share something on Facebook Stories, you’ll know exactly who sees it and who doesn’t.
