Just block Facebook friends whose messages you don't want to read. When you block Facebook friends you will no longer see their messages on your Facebook homepage, but you'll still be their Facebook friend. Even if you block Facebook friends you'll still be able to leave them messages and they can still leave you messages.

Facebook's microblog style homepage makes it easy to keep up with your Facebook friends. Just type a message into your "What's on your mind?" bar and all your Facebook friends will see what you want to say.

Conversely, when you read your Facebook homepage, you can see all the messages all your Facebook friends have left. Read about their day, what's happening in their lives and updates on important events.

What if you have one particular Facebook friend who just utters nonsense on their Facebook? Or they leave so many messages you can't find messages from your other Facebook friends? Or maybe they're just plain boring?

How to Block Facebook Friends

  1. Log into your Facebook profile.

  2. From your Facebook homepage scroll down until you find a message from the person whose messages you want to block.

  3. Hover your mouse over the right side of the message.

  4. When the word "Hide" pops up click on it.

  5. You'll then see a message that says "Hide" with the person's name next to it. Click on this message to block the Facebook friend.

  6. You have now blocked that Facebook friend's messages.

Unblock Facebook Friends
