I don't think I have ever been restricted? I have been blocked though recently, by someone I don't even know in real life They don't know me so I know they must have been advised to (because I have been know to be a bit of a stalker.)

BIL and I blocked each other after we had a fight over Facebook about 2.5 years ago. I unblocked him not long after but he still has me blocked - despite me being bridesmaid in their wedding since! We get along fine now, but he must surely realise he still has me blocked when conversations don't make sense on my sisters photos etc when I comment! It's annoying he still finds it necessary to have me blocked but whatever!!

Limit your friends list so no one can view it!
None of my friends can see who is on my friends list. I know a little extreme but there are a few people on my fb that just add everyone on my friends list in site. So I had enough and my friends list is hidden.
I also have it set up so no one can message me at all and you can only add me if you are a friend of a friend, not a stranger. I dont come up in the search engines either.
My fb is extremely tight security, and restricted even for the people on it.
Sadly you need to be that way.!

I don't have a facebook anymore, in the end I just deleted the whole lot cos so much of it p!ssed me off.
When I had it, I blocked a cousin because she had used my page to abuse another person in my family who she was fighting with (I had them both and wasn't involved in their fight, but when they saw eachother on my page they used as a platform for their fights.)
Then I had to block other family members so they would all think that I had deleted my FB entirely. But then they kept asking my DS if I still had FB, to see if had I deleted/blocked them. It was easier to just get rid of the whole thing, plus many other people on it were giving me the sh!ts and I was sick of hearing from people who hadn't been in my "real" life for years.
One time, I noticed that DH's cousin had deleted me. I hardly knew him and had just met him through family functions etc, so couldn't figure out why he felt the need to delete me!? I did fret ove rit, felt sad and confused.. it's hard not to take it personally.
But I ended up finding out that he was going through a rough patch with drugs at the time and had deleted everyone who was friends with both him and his mother on FB (he didn't want his mum knowing his troubles at the time).
So yeah, it may not even be personal. When initially started blocking individual family members because of the 2 who were fighting, it had nothing to do with them personally but I felt that if they all just thought I had deleted my whole FB there would be no hard feelings.....

My fb is set to private so only my friends can view my details. But how do you set up lists? How can I restrict say my DS's photos from some friends newsfeeds?? I had no idea I could even do this.
I have some friends who I'm sure don't give a rats on my regular pics of DS....but I have family spread out who love the updates, so if I could set up lists that's awesome.

I wouldn't know. I pretty much only look at my newsfeed...
I do it. I block people from viewing certain things. Why? Because they keep sending my friend requests if I delete them... and I don't want them as a friend, but I know them IRL and they'll have a tanty if they're not added... so I add them and just hide most things from them.

Why do people take fb so seriously? I don't get it. I use it to stay in daily contact with friends and family that I would normally telephone every day. It's cheaper lol.
But getting stressed when people defriend or block you? I guess if someone I have on fb did that to me I'd call and ask because it'd be like them hanging up on me. I don't have acquaintances on fb, I don't need satellites knowing whats going on in my life.

I wouldn't take it personally unless it was someone quite involved in my life. If it was a friend in real life or family then I would wonder why, and would call/text to find out why.
Back when I used to have facebook, I once did a massive cull. I deleted anyone that I either hadn't seen in a year or wouldn't recognise if I passed them on the street.
I figured that if I wouldn't tell them all of this information about myself in person then I shouldn't tell them online. None of their business, and they probably don't care anyway!
