This time in this article i am going to explain how can we hide posts and updates from particular friend or application on facebook and if once hidden, then how can we show them again.
One of my friend mentioned to me that she accidentally hide my posts on her wall, and now wants them to be restored! so she asked me the method of unhiding friends on facebook. Well, i thought instead of telling it to her in secret, why not make it a post for the public out there! so here you go!
Actually this tutorial was a result of query from couple of my other friends too who asked me stuff like:

Edit: Please make sure, when you are unhiding the posts from the facebook wall, you need to be on the homepage, instead of your profile page wall.

First we will see how to hide the friends and applications posts and updates via news feed on the facebook wall.

If you want to undo your action of hiding the friends post or news feed / application updates, as if you by mistake made it hidden, you can simply click the undo button as in the above image. This will restore the friends posts and updates on your facebook wall. But note that this option will vanish soon, so act fast if you want to make the friends update to not to be hidden.

How to Unhide / restore Friends posts/ application updates / news feeds on facebook wall
If you once hide your friends posts or application updates on your facebook, and now you want to show them again by unhiding and restoring them, follow this method:
Login to your facebook account and goto the wall(homepage).
Edit: Make sure that you are on New Feeds and not on Live Feeds page.(See the images below to see the correct and wrong page – between news feeds and live feeds:)
This is wrong page (showing the Live Feed). Click on the View News Feed to goto News Feed page:
This is the correct page showing the News Feed:
Once on the correct page, goto the bottom of the facebook wall. There you will see a link saying show hidden posts and edit options.
If you only want to see certain news feed or friends update, you can only click on Show hidden posts and it will show you the posts and updates from your friends and applications that you hide before.
Now if you want the friends updates and posts to be unhide and be shown on your facebook wall, simply click on add to news feed in front of the friends name. This will unhide the news feeds of that person and show the friends posts back again on your facebook wall.
If you want any application updates to be unhide and to show them on your facebook wall that you previously hide, simply click on applications in the above place and it will show you the applications you have hidden before from facebook wall so that you can add them to news feed again to show the updates from them on your facebook wall. (Check the image below for the red circle around the Applications link in the same above popup box)
This way you can hide and unhide the friends posts and applications updates on your facebook wall.
