How can I limiting visibility for my past Facebook posts to only a group of friends?

Jay November 14, 2011

I want, ideally, to limit visibility of all my previous posts to a select group of friends. This was possible about a month ago on Facebook, but it seems to be removed now with the advent of Smart Lists and the new timeline.

As it stands now, I can only keep all my posts to ‘Friends’ or completely restrict certain friends from seeing all previous posts, without any hope of seeing anything that I haven’t set to public.

    hi Jay :)

    I have answered this here : and i think it will still work. 


    click here :

    and those whom you dont want to see the previous posts, ass them to restricted list.

    and set past posts to friends only.

    tell me, if it worked for you.
