Quick Facebook privacy question

hi all - with FB starting to rollout timeline on the profiles, i want to start limiting my privacy settings for close friends, acquaintances and family, etc...

Looking at the fb help I can only see a way to block what I see from my friends but what I want to do is block what my friends see from me. I'm sure this is possible but can't seem to find the setting...any tip would be appreciated Cheers!

"Limit the audience for past posts"

That.

nope that's not it... firstly doesn't let me segregate certain friends to see certain posts. also it's more of a backward looking setting change. i'm looking for something which is more from this point forward.

meaning, for every status update i'm able to automatically control who on my friends list can see the update.

can't believe it's not possible?

Re: Quick Facebook privacy question

You could create multiple friends lists, so that only those on a particular list could see a particular post:

Circle Hack was created to make the process more like Google+ Circles:

^^ What he said.

FB allows you to segregate your Friend's list so that certain lists can only see certain posts.
