Edit Who Can Post on Your Facebook Timeline on HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Rushell, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to edit who can post on your timeline on Facebook on an HTC One M8.
To begin turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located on the top of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated, we will see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen upwards.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen, and at the bottom we will see several icons. It is one of these icons that we now need to access, as we need to open the Applications folder.
To do that, we can use the icon locate at the bottom of the home screen and in the middle. It is a grid made up of white dots.
Press down on that icon, and it will open the "Apps" folder.
In this folder, we now need to find the "Facebook" application. It has the "Facebook" icon, which is a blue tile with a white "f" on top. Underneath, it says the word "Facebook".
Press down on the "Facebook" icon, and it will open up the application.
We now need to find the Account Settings, and to do that, we need the icon on the far right-hand side of the screen and in the white bar. There are three gray horizontal lines. Press down on that icon to open up a menu.
We want the "Account Settings" option. Next to those words is a gray circle with the white outline of a person's head and shoulders and a small white cog on it. It may be necessary to scroll up or down to locate "Account Settings".
Once it is found, press down on that option to open the next menu.
We want the option that says, "Timeline and Tagging", so press down on that.
On the "Timeline and Tagging" menu, press on the first option that says, "Who can post on your timeline?" Underneath, it says, "Friends", indicating that is the option currently selected.
This will bring us to the "Select Audience" screen, where we can select one of two options under "Who can post on your timeline?" We can choose "Friends" or "Only Me".
In this example, the blue check is currently next to the "Friends" option, indicating that it is selected. We have two choices. We can allow our "Friends" to post to our timeline, or we can allow only ourselves to post things.
If we only want ourselves to be able to post on our timeline, then press down on "Only Me".
It will retreat back to the "Select Audience" screen, and underneath "Who can post on your timeline", it says "Only Me". The timeline is now locked for our friends, and they cannot post on it. Only we can.
To change that option, press down on the first section again. If it does not seem to respond when you press, it might be due to a glitch. This always happens with the first option in every menu. We can press down on it, and the option will turn blue. However, nothing happens.
In this case, what we need to do is press the back arrow, which is the curved arrow located at the bottom left-hand corner of the screen.
As soon as we press that, we'll see the screen try to go back, but it will not actually leave the current menu.
Now, we can press down on the first option.
It will then allow us to enter the "Select Audience" screen. Therefore, remember there might be a slight glitch, and it is only with the first option on the menu. Follow the advice we've just provided to get around it.
We can now press down on "Friends", and our "Friends" will be able to post on our timeline as well.
Now, if we want to go back into that option, it will not let us.
We will have to press the back arrow at the bottom left.
Then we can press on the top option to open the "Select Audience" screen.
