Facebook brings together people from different aspects of your life. It gives disparate groups -- old high school friends, college chums, your mother or even your boss -- access to information you may not want them to have. Fortunately, Facebook allows you to control who sees your content, from the photos you post to your individual updates. To make your Facebook posts unseen by certain people, change your privacy settings or modify individual updates prior to posting them.

Click the "Customize Settings" link at the bottom of the "Sharing on Facebook" section.
Click the drop-down menu in the "Posts by Me" section under "Things I Share." Choose "Customize" to open the "Custom Privacy" box.
Type a person's name in the "These People" box beneath "Hide This From." When you enter someone's name in this box, it tells Facebook to hide your posts from the person by default.
