I believe this is what the “hide” button is for. I use it often, I only see like half my friends and my friends list is tiny.

@KatyElle:  Exactly or delete from your friends list all together. That way you don’t have to see any of their pictures.

@KatyElle:  Agreed. 


As you said– they weren’t healthy relationships and you’re better off without them.

Why are you even friends with them on FB anyway? Stop torturing yourself and DELETE THEM! You will be much happier.

Ugh I hear you. I am just recently going through this and it sucks. We have a few mutual friends that I don’t want to unfriend just because of what happened but I hate seeing things show up in my newsfeed that include the ex friends. It hurts. I usually hide the picture or status as soon as I see it but I already saw it so it still brings back the hurt. If you block your old friends then they shouldn’t come up as often unless it’s just pictures of them that they are in but haven’t been tagged in. Sorry you’re dealing with this. 🙁

Facebook can definitely lead to hurt in situations like these or make people feel left out, etc. Like others said, I make use of the “hide” button on my newsfeed when things people post start getting to me. I’m sorry hun, but try to remember all the wonderful people you do have in your life and ignore those toxic ex-friends!

@leebaby711:  I just hide people as they pop up on my newsfeed. I didn’t go through and do a mass “hide” or anything. And every time I do it, it feels like I’m ridding my life of just a bit of negativity.

  I think the OP said that she did delete those friends off of her account. The problem is that they have some mutual friends, and she sees those pictures.

  That being said, I do agree! You can try to block everything, but something can come up unknowingly. I usually just try to hide everything right away, so I don’t have to look at it too much. I had this one girl sort of nudge me out of the group of friends. It hurts when I see all of them together, but not me anymore. I’ve just had to hide the pictures.

  Sometimes, Facebook can really suck.

@leebaby711:  Yeah…it’s a pain in the butt when you see that your friend is commenting on someone’s photo that you aren’t friends with. And it stinks that you have to hide that person just so that you don’t see those photos. I don’t care when friends comment with people I don’t know! I wish there was another type of feature that you could just see when they comment on things with people you DO know. Just seems silly.

Don’t let Facebook ruin your day. They may look all happy and supportive, but who is to say they aren’t causing drama in that person’s wedding too? And just think, you don’t have to be a part of it…woohoo!
