    Once the phone has been unlocked we will see the home screen, and at the bottom we will see 5 icons. We now need to open the application folder.

    We can do that by tapping the icon in the middle, at the bottom of the screen
    .
    There is a grid of white dots. This is the icon for the applications folder.

    Now that the folder has been opened, we need to find and tap the Facebook application
    .
    There is a Facebook icon, which is a blue background with a white "f" inside, and underneath it says the word "Facebook". When we're publishing our posts, we can exclude some of our friends from seeing the post. This just allows us to control exactly who sees it if we don't want to make someone angry or jealous that we know will cause problems. We still want to publish anyway, and exclude people from seeing the post.

    All we need to do is press down on the circle
    .
    This will make the circle red like a stop sign, which means that these people will not see this individual post. This is isn't about posts in the future or posts in the past, this is just for this individual post. We need to do this every post if we want to exclude someone permanently or from a certain type of posts that we publish. Now the person has been added to the list and if we post something, this friend will not see the post.

    .
