Stop Others from Posting on Your Facebook Timeline on iPhone

If you are a social media geek, I am sure that you must be enjoying a large fan & friend following that constantly check your status updates, photos, videos and more. While you are basking in this virtual popularity, sometimes you are in the soup if one of your friends posts something embarrassing on your wall. If you are a celebrity, you have to be all the more vigilant lest somebody writes vilifying content against you or somebody else.

The best solution is to block such friends. Perhaps not. Because there can be some of your close friends, who might take this action to heart. Facebook gives you an option to stop others (read friends) from posting on Facebook Wall on iPhone.

By following some easy steps, you can stop your friends from posting anything unacceptable or objectionable on your Facebook Wall on iPhone.

Step #1: Launch Facebook app on your iPhone.

Moreover, the above process will automatically change the preferences on web too. So, when you access your Facebook account from web, the changes will reflect there and nobody can post anything on your Wall until you revoke changes in your Account Settings.
