How to Stop People from Posting on your Facebook Wall

Okechukwu Solomon January 16, 2018

By Default, if you become friends with someone on Facebook, you can post anything on his/her timeline. In the same way, other people can also share things or post on your Facebook wall. The privacy settings for timeline posts is set to everyone i.e., any Facebook user that visited your profile can see what other people has posted on your wall.


But if you look at some Facebook profile like Mark Zuckerberg, you'll find that only his posts are visible there and you cannot post or share things on his timeline.

Facebook profile is like your personal property and that's why, only your posts should be there. It will look more clean and organized than, thus giving a professional look to your profile.

You might have hundreds of friends on Facebook and it's really annoying when someone post things on your timeline that you don't want to share with other people. Here's how to stop them from doing this.

How to Stop people from posting on your timeline

There are two methods that you can use. Either you can change your timeline privacy settings or block/unfriend the particular person from your account. Below I had explained both these methods.

Method 1. Change privacy settings:

Facebook has provided a privacy feature which let you stop all your friends from posting on your timeline. If you want to enable it, simply follow these steps -


  1. First, login to your Facebook account and click the drop-down arrow icon at the top-right corner of the page (same button from where you logout the account)
  2. From the drop-down menu, click Settings option.
  3. Now move to Timeline and Tagging tab.
  4. Under Who can add things to my timeline? section, click edit link next to Who can post on your timeline? option.
  5. Now, change the audience from Friends to Only me and that's it.
After this, if your friends will visit your profile, they will not find any box to share things on your timeline.

Method 2. Block or unfriend the person

Previously, we discussed How to block someone from commenting on your Facebook post so if you want to block a particular person from posting annoying things on your timeline, the only way is to block or unfriend him or her. Here's how to unfriend them -

  1. Go to the person's profile and click Friends button.
  2. Now tap Unfriend option from the menu list and you are done. You can also block the person to stop all communications.
Apart from this, if the person is your close friend, you can tell him directly not to post anything on your timeline. Additional, you can post a new status so that other people will also be informed.

If you want to get more like and comments on your Facebook profile, I recommend using Friends or Friends of Friends privacy option but if you don't have anything to hide you can use Public.
