How to Share Facebook Posts with Only Selected People


Facebook is a great place to share your thoughts and photos with your friends. The ability to share videos and pictures is indeed a handy feature, which allows you to upload any updates with pictures as it happens.  However, not everyone would be interested in your updates even if they are in your friend list. Or you may don’t want to share your every update with everyone in your Friend list. In such situations Facebook allows you to share your Facebook posts including pictures and videos with  few selected people only. Here is how to share Facebook posts with selected people easily.

How to Share Facebook Posts with Only Selected People

To make this possible we can make use of Facebook List feature. By default you already have a list called Friends. Now if you select Friends list before posting then your shared post will be only restricted to your Facebook friends. However, since you don’t want to share your post with all your Facebook friends, you can create your own custom Facebook list. Here is how to do it.

Step 1: Login to your Facebook account.

Step 2: Scroll down and hover your mouse over on Friends section. When you hover your mouse on Friends, you will see More link. Click on More to open List page. 


Step 3: Next, click on Create List button (top right). 


Step 4: After clicking on Create List, a Create New List window will open. In the window, type in your List Name. For example, if you want to share post with your college friends only then provide your College name as it will be easier to recognize. Let’s type AIMCA in the name field. 

Step 5: Next, you have to type in the names of your college friends who are in your friends list. In the Members section starting typing and selecting the name of your friends. 

Step 6: Once you have added your friends name in Members section, click on Create button. If you don’t remember all your friends name at that time then don’t worry as you can edit and add new members to your list anytime.


Step 7: Now that you have created your Friends list. Go and create a new post, but before posting click on Public button and then select More Options. 


Step 8: Under More Options, you should see your newly created list. In my case it is AIMCA. Click on it and select it.


Step 9: Next, click on Post button to share your post. And be sure that your post will be only seen by the people you have added on your list. 


That’s it. Now all the posts that you share using your newly created list will be shared with the people on your list.
