Sometimes there are specific people you want to restrict from viewing certain content on Facebook. To create a list of people you want to keep on your Facebook friends list but restrict Timeline visibility from, you can choose “Edit Settings” beside the “How You Connect” option on the privacy settings page.

The last option, “Who can see posts by others on your timeline?” allows you to customize a list of friends to restrict. Beside this label, choose the “Custom” option and click on it. This will open up another box where you can input a list of friends’ names.

Once you hit “Save Changes,” the friend names you entered under that “Hide this from” option will not be able to see posts from other people on your Timeline.
