Can you block certain friends from seeing certain wall posts on facebook?

My question is:  The guy I am seeing swears that he broke up with his ex girlfriend. Last week she was off his friends list and she's back. In the past she was constantly writing mushy gross stuff all over his wall. Now there is nothing.

So:  Is it possible for him to block me from seeing anything she writes to him but still allow me to view all other posts? So I don't get suspicious?

 

One more question is:  He did have 215 pictures. A bunch were deleted during their "spat" to have only 189. But now it says there are 197. there are no new photos anywhere. Now I know that you can block people from seeing certain photo albums, so what I want to know is, if underneath his profile photograph it says there are 197 pictures, then when you click on it , on the pictures section all other numbers have stayed the same. Is that a weird facebook glitch or is there a hidden photo album somewhere that I can't see?

maybe you are a psycho who has way too much time on her hands and spend too much time on a social networking site stalking her boyfriend. get a life, go outside, enjoy life. stop living in a virtual world and stressing yourself out over how many pictures are on somebody's facebook and getting worked up that there is no new ones. you are not in the cia and your making your life way harder than it should be. or how about this.. trust

Maybe he's deleting them after she posts them... tho that would probably get him in trouble with her... but still possible.

If her name is tagged in some of the pics, she can set her settings to block you (or other certain people) from viewing tagged pictures of herself. So all she has to do, is post her pics, tag them with her name (or he could tag them with her name) and then she can go in and block you or whoever she wants to block from viewing them..

Go to: Profile settings, then privacy settings, click on who can see "photos tagged of you".
Then click on "custom", then click on "edit custom settings". There you will see where you can put in anyone's name that you do not want seeing that tagged photo. All this girl has to do is put your name in there and then you can't see them. Shock( Ask him for his password for Facebook and sign in under his name. You'll be able to see everything. If he has nothing to hide, he shouldn't have a problem with this. Tell him it's for your peace of mind. If he refuses, you need to move on.

i disagree with you about the boyfriend surrendering his password. thats his own "personal space". Its his account, right? I would compare this to giving up the pin number to your bank card. not happening. If you dont trust him, move on, and stop being jealous....

Seriously, if you are that suspicious just end it. Guy sounds like a loser anyway.

The discrepancy in pictures is because he was tagged in some pictures, either by himself or someone else, in an album that has restriced privacy settings. For example, if a friend of his has the settings to "only friends" while his picture count will show the actual total he is tagged in, when you click through to view the actual pictures the number on top of THAT page is only the pictures you are allowed to see.

As for the ex, well, I dated someone who took me on and off of his friends list constantly...a very maipulative and sneaky tactic. It may not be the girl at all, it could be him. OR they could actually be friending and defriending each other back and forth and changing album privacy settings. Childish, yes..but I've had it happen to me first hand.

They constantly take each other on and off. I think its her because on my space all her comments would be gone when she deleted her profile.  I hate them both!!!

Re: her being on and off his friend's list, it could be that she's been activating and deactivating her profile. (Some people do that for some reason). When a person deactivates his/her profile, comments made by the individual usually disappear (and reappear later, when the person reactivates the profile)

These photos - the number under the picture - usually seem to be tagged photos as far as I know.

to see all of his photos, click the "Photos" TAB on his profile....(where you see "Wall" "Info" "Photos" and probably "Boxes")
