Ladies, I thought one of you might know.  Is it possible to keep someone as a friend on Facebook but make them NOT show up on your newsfeed?  There is a person that I genuinely like and consider a friend, but getting a daily dose of her politics is really getting to me.  I want her to be able to see my photos, etc., but I need a break from her often hurtful words.  I have lots of Facebook friends who do not share my political views.  I normally don't mind at all.  However, this woman is completely over the top.  Help!

Yes! What Liz said- you can hide their posts or "unsubscribe" so you don't see it.  I had to do the same with my own brother because he has really gone off the deep end with his political posts.  I chose to not hide photos though, so I could see any pics of my nephew.  Unfortunately it means I also see any political photos/memes he shares but at least it's just that small portion

Yep! Hover over the right corner of her post in your newsfeed, and a little arrow should appear. If you click it, you can hide that story, hide all posts by her, or report the post.
