How To Post Privately To Someone Else's FaceBook Wall

Here's the trick to posting a comment on someone's facebook wall, so that no one else, either your friends OR theirs will see it (unless you choose that they do too). You can use this trick to post pictures, videos, and all of the other things you normally can do, but it'll only be visible to them and you.

Let's begin ... go to either your profile page or your home page, and where you normally type in your comment, picture, whatever, click the little "Lock" icon sitting next to the "Share" button. This will bring up a small menu, click the "Customize" menu item next, as shown in (Fig-1).

On the next dialog, choose "Specific People ..." from the drop-down menu, and then start typing the name of the person you want this private wall post to go to. You'll notice that it'll help you out as you type. If you want to share this private message with anyone other than the one person, you can also type their name(s) here as well.

Be sure to leave the checkbox at the bottom UN-checked. Leaving this unchecked makes sure that this privacy setting doesn't stay that way. In other words, it only keeps these settings for this one post, and then goes right back to normal.

Finally, click the "Save Setting" button. (Fig-2)

Now, back on your comment box, type the message you want posted. To make sure it also is posted to the other persons page (or people, if you chose more than one above) you need to type an "@" sign followed by the person's name somewhere in the message. It doesn't necessarily need to be in the front, but must be somewhere in the post. If you included more than one person above, then an @ sign and their name(s) must also be somewhere in the message.

This is also a way to have private conversations on walls for just a small group of people if you wanted to. Wink

When done typing your message, click the "Share" button. (Fig-3)

Finite!

Now you'll see your message only on your page, and the persons (or people's) walls. No one else on their friends list or yours can see it. Completely invisible to them. (Fig-4)

You'll be viewing your profile as the person on your friends list who's name you typed in .. so as long as it's not one of the people, or person you sent the private wall message to, it will not be visible on your wall to them. Smile (Fig-9)

It should be mentioned that just because you post this to where only you and the other person can see it doesn't mean they can't take a screenshot and post it as a photo for the (Facebook) world to see. Just a word of caution.

I will say this is a nice trick but why not just email them?

If ya want to have a direct convo, a plain ol message is definately the way to go, it's alot easier and faster, but this is kind of a fun way to screw around with people. For one, most of the time they can't tell they're the only one who can see it, so they think the world can. That alone can lead to all kinds of fun pranks Wink

If ya think creatively, this is a fun little trick.

Re: How To Post Privately To Someone Else's FaceBook Wall - ...

Can you do the same thing with a list that you create of specific Friends? I want to post to several Friends often, but I don't want to have to keep typing the @ sign and everyone's name each time. Is there a way to set this up on a list or something, and post everyone on the list all at once?

Thank you for your help.

First off, welcome to GeekDrop Terry, we're glad that you found us. Smile

For groups of people I think the easiest way would be to take advantage of Facebook's new "Groups" feature. Just click on the "Home" link at the top right of your profile, and towards the left of your screen you should see the "Create Group" link. Here's a screenshot to help ya.

Private Facebook groups

You can fill in the name of your group, add whoever you want in it to the list of members, and then at the bottom where I've highlighted, choose how visible, (and whether just anyone can join it or if they need to request membership first), you want your group to be to people who aren't in the group. Once it's created you can all just post to each other in the group and only members of that group will be able to see the posts.



Shhh.. dont tell anyone, but we also have a private forum area with the really good stuff, see?

Re: How To Post Privately To Someone Else's FaceBook Wall

if i tag one friend, it shows up on that friends wall as well. but, since my friend is tagged in the post, wont the person I tagged, friends be able to see it as well?

I think when this tutorial was originally created only the tagged person could see statuses they were tagged in on their own profile (and yours). Now though it all depends on what they have their tag options set to in their Facebook Privacy Settings.
