Yes. Open Facebook on a computer, look at the top right for the black on dark blue icon that says Privacy Shortcuts, pull down, go to Settings and exclude everyone but friends. I do this and it works.

You may have to "friend" people you want to "like" your posts.

I have answered your first question correctly but it may be you cannot do question 2.

Sorry the solution provided is not working. I was asking whether able to allow followers to like the post but not add comment. However, you said "exclude everyone but friends" means friend can see my post but not followers which is not what I want.

You cannot set the Facebook options to accomplish exactly what you want. The privacy settings have limitations.

mawingho,

This is not possible and I agree with John's comments.

However, there may be a way to get something close to what you need.  I looked on Facebook settings and found something that might be a nice workaround for your situation.  Please try the following:

  • Go to https://www.facebook.com/ and login.
  • Go into your Friends section and edit them.
  • Classify each as a "Friend" or "Acquaintance".  (If you have a lot of friends (aka followers), then this could take some time to complete.)
  • Once that is finished, go to your General Privacy Settings.
  • Allow Friends to see your posts by default.

After this is set, when you post something new, ALL your Friends will see it, but if you set your individual posts to a more private setting, then use "Friends Except Acquaintances" and those that you have classified as "Friends" may see your posts, but that post is safe from those classified as "Acquaintances".

Try that out and see if it is to your liking.
