The advent of the social network seemed like a really good idea at the time. Well, in fact, it actually was a good idea. However, as they say in the epic comic books, “That which can be used for good can surely be used for evil.” This is where the douchebag facebook stalkers come in.
Sure, we could just unfriend them, but as you know, this just encourages some stalkers and sends some douchebags into an emotional tirade. In either case, it’s bad. Some of you may even be dealing with the ultimate inconvenience of a douchebag facebook stalker. If this is the case, my prayers are with you.
Anyways, since I am a terrible narrator of instructions, I should probably clarify what this tip actually does. Rather than “unfriending” another individual on Facebook, you can actually block them from seeing items in your profile. You will still show up on their friends list, but they cannot see your updates.
So, in advance, in case someone catches that you have done this, have a good cover story. I personally prefer pleading ignorance. “My posts aren’t showing up? Huh… that’s wierd, must be something going on with Facebook.” Then just play it off like, “Oh well, I really don’t use Facebook much anymore anyways, you’re not missing much.”
Boom, problem solved.
Block Douchebags and Stalkers on Facebook Without Unfriending Them:
1. While logged into your account, select the “Account” dropdown in the upper right hand corner.
2. Select ‘Privacy Settings’.
3. Choose the ‘Custom’ tab on the left hand side.
4. Select ‘Customize Settings’
5. For each section, you can select “Everyone” and select “Customize”.
6. Finally, in the “Hide From” section, simply start typing in the douchebag stalkers name and select it.
7. You’re a genius!
Well. Good luck, hopefully you are on your way to removing the entire plethora of douchebag stalkers from your Facebook experience. It certainly makes it a much more beneficial experience for me.
