Greetings

The problem, My facebook page is being inundated by propaganda being shared by a number of people I know, they are resharing pretty much every facebook post from a political parties leaders facebook page, I decided to block that particular leader in my settings, but that doesn't seem to block the posts (I assume) because he isn't the one sharing the posts his followers are.

My question is how do i block shares from multiple people but that originate at the one source

Politics, I have my views, others have theirs but I don't believe you should try forcing your views on others when they say they are not interested.

Unfortunately some people I know who are otherwise sane became utterly vitriolic near an election (almost to a jihadist type degree) when you don't agree with their viewpoints, currently I am getting rather a lot of left wing crap which if anything is having the reverse effect to what they are intending, in fact i am trying to find a part to the extreme right of ACT at the moment

Top right hand side of the posts is a little chevron, click on there and look at the options.

Cheers Whetu

It appears i can actually block the shared photo site without blocking the person
