Hello,
I have had friends tell me that whenever I post a comment on a story (say CNN article), they can also see it. I am looking to close up my privacy settings so my friends cannot see when I comment on an article, or when I become friends with someone. I have a dummy profile and added myself so I can see what others see.


Examples:


leadingedge04 commented on this [Friend (non mutual) shared a picture].
leadingedge04 replied to a comment on this [shared viral image, several comments from public].
leadingedge04 commented on this [Followed page shared an article].
leadingedge04 liked [followed page shared an image].


etc




Thank you!

I am not sure.

I have a long-term friend, who has recently turned very sour. Everytime he replies to anything I say, his replies are very negative and insulting. I do not want to drop him though.

So I made a group of contacts labeled 'General Population', I put all of my contacts in this group but I left him out of it. I no longer post to 'Public' I mostly post to 'General Population'.

Now he and I are still friends, but I have limited how much of my stuff he sees.

Well I only post "on Friends", but these friends seem to see when I make a snarky remark on a CNN article, for example. I never see when other friends do it (maybe they don't make comments on news articles idk).
