HOW TO: Prevent Facebook Friends To Post On Your Wall

Everyday I used to get freaking SPAM wall posts, and seriously deleting them one by one annoys me a lot! Though Facebook is a secure and most popular social network, still such spammers find loop holes to create applications and ruin our profiles. If you encounter such fake application, I advise you to report them.

Our profile is, indeed, indirectly hacked and automatically posts some strange objectionable content on your friends’ wall and they are tempted to click on them.

  1. It would be nice to not see posts that are sharing things. A nice little switch would be nice. I am more interested in my friend the their shared photos and things.

  2. hey ya!

    FB has changed the manage privacy option it doesn't look the same as instructed above, I used to disable my wall and comments before but now I can only disable the wall but the comments field is still there. I wish to disable or hide temporarily the entire wall. Can someone help?

  3. I haven't run into any issues with spam, but having the option to prevent others from posting on my wall is good to know. For me, since I don't get the spam, I do get those facebook game updates, which are annoying.

  4. But generally it's not friends who spam you, and most people want friends to be able to post on their walls.

  5. Nice tip, i have been bombarded with those wall posts myself, i used to just delete them, but now we can prevent them from coming… facebook sometimes becomes a lot annoying, every time someone adds me on an event or a groups i get an email notification, and i have selected to get no emails for them… really disturbing..

    PS. i guess your comment luv plugin is not working.

  6. Thats a good idea but it might annoy people when they need to communicate something to me through wall.

  7. I think by doing this we're also preventing our real friends and readers to share something. Is there any way we can prevent particular person to post on our wall?? If it's possible then it would be great as not many people would be spammers.

    • Yes Anoop, you are write. I think we should create two profile one for professional friends and one for personal friends.
