Step 2. Click on  “Create a list.” Name it “Limited Profile,” “Professional contacts,” “Blocked People,” or whatever name you want it to be . I prefer ‘Limited Profile’  .

Step 3. Go to ‘Privacy Settings’  which is under the ‘Home’ tab arrow . Click on “edit settings” next to “How you connect,” and, next to the last option (“Who can see Wall posts by others on your profile?”), click “custom”
