Class- 6 to 8
For students and teachers
1. Get rid of birthday notifications.
You have so many friends that your phone is blowing up with birthday notifications every day. Click on the globe that shows your notifications in the top bar of Facebook and click “Settings” in the top right corner of the drop-down. Go down to “Birthdays” and switch “on” to “off.” Now just put your friends’ birthdays in their phone contact because you’re twentysomething and can manage to do that now.
2 Review posts you’re tagged in before they show up on your timeline.
This is so those unflattering pictures from last night don’t automatically make it onto your timeline. By going back to “Settings” (which you can always find by going to facebook.com/settings), you can change the way your timeline and tags are managed. Under the “Timeline and Tagging” section in the sidebar, go to “Who can add things to my timeline?” to find “Review posts friends tag you in before they appear on your timeline?” Hit edit to change this to “enabled,” and say good-bye to pictures that should not have been taken.
3. Cut someone from your Newsfeed without having to unfriend them.
Just because you want to keep your 1,000th friend doesn’t mean you actually want to see their posts in your newsfeed. This is what “following” and “unfollowing” is for. Look for the “Following” button over your friend’s cover photo and put your cursor over it to reveal a menu. Click “unfollow” to ensure that this person’s posts won’t pop up on your Newsfeed, but you’ll still have full access for the occasional stalk
4 Remotely log out of Facebook if you accidentally left it logged in.
When you log into Facebook on your friend’s devices or a public computer, it’s easy to forget to log out again. “Security Settings” tells you where you’re logged in, when you logged in, and gives you the ability to “End activity,” so no one can hack your profile. Go to “Settings” and then scroll down the left column to “Security.” Click on “Where You’re Logged In” and then end activity on ~mysterious~ devices.
5. Use lists to block “Family” from seeing certain posts.
NSFF (not safe for family) posts are no longer an issue with lists. To create a list, click on “Friends” in the left sidebar of your home page and choose “Create List.” Enter names of people who fall under the same category and title the list accordingly so these people are always easy to find. By creating a list of relatives that are typically not fans of your party selfies, you can block them from seeing those posts without a problem. To block a list from seeing a post, click on the two little people next to the date and time on your status, and choose “More Options,” then “Custom.” Type in the name of the list that you want to disable from seeing the post. Cue a huge sigh of relief.
6. Block certain people from chatting you on Facebook Messenger.This is for those persistent guys that you want to let down easy. Instead of trying to ignore his messages, just discretely block him from chatting you. At the bottom of your chat sidebar, you’ll find the little gear that means “Options,” where you can access “Advanced Settings.” From here you’ll see “Turn off chat for only some friends…” where you can type in the names of friends that you don’t want finding you on FB chat.
7 .Add GIFs to your messages without downloading other apps.
When you’re in a message, click on the magnifying glass next to the text box for a collection of GIFs to appear. By typing in keywords, you can find something relevant to your ~*fUn~*~ message.
8 Make free calls using Facebook Messenger.
Keyword: free. Why add anybody’s number to your phone’s contacts anymore when you can just find them on FB and call them via Wi-Fi?! You probably have more friends there anyway.
