How to limit posts on Google+ to the person you shared it with?

jluppino

I've had a couple of things that I would rather the person I shared them not reshare with their circles. Obviously, I know that you shouldn't share anything you really want to keep private on a social media network, and I never put anything on there that is really embarrassing or inappropriate. That doesn't mean that I necessarily want the world to see it though. Is there a way to block the person you share with from letting others see your post?

It's very easy, but not particularly obvious. Click on the drop down arrow on the top right of your post box (to the right of your name at the top of your post). Choose "Lock this post". This will keep the person you share with from resharing it.
