Have you noticed people who you have not accepted as friends on Facebook can actually be your Facebook Followers? I was asked the other day about how to find out who these followers are and there really is a very simple way.
To find out who your Facebook Followers are go to your profile and you will see in your Intro Section the amount of Followers you have.
Click on the number of people and your Facebook Followers list will appear.
To stop someone from being a Facebook Follower go to their profile and block them. Simples. Click on the three dots to the right of their cover photo and choose the option to block. You won’t be able to see their information any more and they wont be able to see yours.
Your Facebook Followers will only be able to see those posts that you choose to share publicly.
If you have something that you are sharing that is more private, chose the option for your posts to be seen by Friends only.
Are you aware that you can actually create your own “lists” on Facebook to just share posts from your personal profile to a specific group of people? Just click on the more button under “Friends except…” and you’ll see what I mean.
On your personal profile click on settings and then you will see an option on the left hand side which says public posts. Click on there and you’ll see right at the top “who can follow me” – you can change your settings in here if you would like to.
If you would like to block more than 1 of your Facebook Followers you could go to your settings and click on blocking – type “All Followers” in to the Block Users Bars and again, your list – although not as details as above, will appear.
