Adjust Your Mini-FeedEdit

Step 1: Sign in to Facebook. You will need to view your profile to see your mini-feed. Click the "My Profile" link from the home page.

Step 2: Click "See All" for your mini-feed to see the stories posted for your profile.

Step 3: Hide recent events from your friends. If you don't want to share an item on your mini-feed, just click the "X," or close button, next to the item you want to remove. A pop-up will ask you to confirm that you want to hide the story. Once hidden, neither you nor your friends can view the story.

Step 4: Sort your mini-feed by topic. The default view is by date, but by sorting by topic, you can remove related information quickly.

Set Your Mini-Feed Privacy LevelEdit

Step 1: Head to the "My Privacy" page while logged in to Facebook.

Step 2: Edit the settings for the "News Feed and Mini-Feed" section. You can click on "Edit Settings" or the section title link.

Step 3: Select items you want to appear in feeds. Any unchecked features will not appear on any feed, whether your own or another person's. For example, if you do not select "Write a Wall Post," then any story involving you and a wall post will not appear in any feed.

Step 4: Decide whether you want times to appear in your mini-feeds. Taking out the time stamp adds a bit more privacy.

Step 5: Be sure to click the "Save Changes" button so you do not lose your new preferences.
