I am in a group for Buying and Selling on Facebook. A few of my friends are too but I do not want them to see my posts. These friends are 'restricted' on my account so they do not see statuses, etc. They are in-laws who are apparently obligatory to have as friends but the drama they create over me buying/selling is very frustrating.

I made a separate account for buying and selling but Facebook shut it down, so that's not an option.

Is there anything I can do?

No, unfortunately not. If the group is public, posts will be pushed to your activity. In addition, since they are in the same group, privacy settings don't really apply, as they are allowed to read any message within the group.


What are the privacy options for groups?
