    Since my "stalker" has found my facebook name i've been getting unwanted messages from other people. I've got everything else private but now want to switch messaging to private, can someone tell me how you do this?

    Thanks x

    go to ACCOUNT then click on your Private Settings, and click on the one that says Friends Only, if you get any unwanted messages then you can BLOCK them buy putting their names on your block list, which you find at the bottom of the private settings page ok. Hope that helps a bit. xxx

    Yeah I have all that set up but i've seen peoples profiles where you can't send them a message.

    To be honest, I don't want to get these messages.

    If you’d like to modify who can send you Facebook messages and email:
    Go to the Account drop-down menu at the top of any Facebook page and select "Privacy Settings."
    Select "View settings" in the "Basic Directory Information" section.
    Change the setting for "Send me messages." Your options include Everyone, Friends and Friends of Friends.

    I think the only way you can stop someone messaging you is if you block them completely.

    But it's not one person, it's one person passing on private information to others so they can contact me because that one person can't let things go and continues to stalk me and moan about the things i've done. :rolleyes:

    Nope, they have spies on here that are probably reporting back this thread right now :rolleyes:

    S'ok, Dosen't bother me in general just makes me think they are very sad person with no life if all they can go on about is my past :p

    I just prefer to be left in peace and didn't want anymore of these silly messages. :nono:

    It's a pain in the butt but I have better things to do than please my stalker ;) I just want to continue my life without having be pestered.

    You can also set your profile so you can't be searched.. the only way to see you is of your on a friends list... I used to have mine like that.. Im not sure if I still have.... I can't remember how I did it though.. also you can have different settings for different people.. :)
