Hiding, Deleting, and Featuring Status Updates
Your Profile page consists of a detailed Timeline of all your status updates and activities, from the moment you joined Facebook (and even before) to this moment in time. That doesn’t mean you need to display every single status update, however; if there’s an embarrassing update out there, you can choose to hide it.
To hide a status update, hover over the update until you see the Edit or Remove (pencil) button. Click this button, then select Hide from Timeline.
If a post is particularly embarrassing, you may want to delete it completely. To do this, click the Edit or Remove (pencil) button and select Delete Post.
Then there are those posts that are more important than others. To that end, Facebook lets you feature a post on your Timeline (see Figure 4). (Basically, a featured post stretches across both columns on the page.) To do this, click the Feature on Timeline (star) button for that particular update. To “unfeature” a post, just click the Feature on Timeline button again.
