How to block Facebook friends from posting to your timelineDon’t like the idea that any and all of your Facebook friends can post updates, links, photos, or just about anything else they want to your timeline?

Good news: you can enforce a “hands-off” policy for your timeline in just a few clicks.

Once you change the right setting, neither friends nor frenemies will see the “Write something…” window on your timeline anymore.

The downside, of course, is that you won’t get any more friendly greetings posted to your timeline—and yes, that means no more “happy birthday!” posts.

So, ready to slam the door on random timeline posts from your Facebook friends?
