How to restrict who can see your Facebook photos



One of the best things about Facebook is the ability to instantly and effortlessly upload photos and video. Whether it’s a wedding album or just a few holiday snaps, it’s great to be able share those precious moments with family and friends.

But sometimes it would be nice to be a little more selective. Although we don’t mind mom and dad seeing pictures of our day at the beach, sharing a bikini shot with everyone at work is a whole different matter. And what about pictures of our children? Although we may feel OK about most of our Facebook friends seeing our kids at play, it might not be appropriate to share those images with everyone.

Fortunately, Facebook does offer some options for restricting who can see our photos and videos. Although the default settings are geared towards full distribution, a more considered approach is just a few clicks away. Here’s how you can make some adjustments:

  • On your Facebook page, click on the arrow next to Account in the top right-hand corner and choose Privacy Settings.

  • Cick on Customize Settings, which is the last option under the Sharing on Facebook header.

  • Under Things I share, scroll to the bottom of the list and click on Edit privacy settings for existing photo albums and video.

  • You will now see a list of all the albums and videos that you have uploaded to Facebook. Under each album, there is a dropdown box with various privacy options. If you click on Customize, you will see the window below, which gives you the ability to limit access to the album or video or hide it from specific people.

Don’t forget that with these adjustments, you are only restricting the people who can see your photos and videos on your own Facebook page. There is nothing to stop the people that can see those images from copying them and reposting them, either on Facebook or elsewhere on the Internet.

Remember – if you really don’t want certain people to see a photo or video, then don’t post it!
