How do I block post from certain people that I really like, but they just load my home page with frivolous stuff that takes up my time scrolling thru? I don't want to unfriend them, just block their post from my home page.

are you talking about games and stuff? or do they post all day long?

You can stop their news feeds by positioning your cursor over to the top right side of one of their posts; once you see the X click on it and you have a couple of options, including not seeing any of their posts.

I've had to do that in recent weeks with a couple of people. :(

You can just hide their posts by doing what Jodi said. I have done that with several people who seem to always have an agenda on FB. I just do FB for fun and to keep up with everyone and their pictures, not to constantly see political posts, farmville, etc.

Oh great ladies!! The x had me scared I was gonna block the people completely. I don't mind political post, but all of these (read a LOT) of youtube music vids and silly stuff like I need coffee, things like that that just get in my way. Anyway this worked. Thanks!!

I had someone help me get rid of farmville and the games a while back. Boy was that a relief! Hehe!

Yeah, I never got into Farmville or any of the other FB games ... some people tried to get me into it but I always refused. :unsure:

You have to click on your account and "Edit friends" to remove a friend or to "Privacy Settings" to block someone. If you block someone, they can't have any contact with you or see your wall, etc.

If you click on "Most Recent" at the top, there is a drop down menu. Choose "Status Updates" and you'll only see status updates and not the other silly stuff like youtube, without having to hide or block anybody.:)
