• They added you to Accounts blocked on LINE VOOM.

I see a post on my profile that I set to be shared only with certain users on LINE VOOM toggle
Posts that you set to share only with yourself or certain users will also appear on your profile, but only on your device.

When you make a post on LINE VOOM to be shared with a custom list of users, it will not appear to any users who are not on the list.

About LINE VOOM privacy settings toggle
With LINE VOOM (formerly Timeline), you select the people you want to follow from your LINE friend list. (You are asked to do this initially from the From friends to followers pop-up.) After you select who to follow, your LINE VOOM Following list and LINE friend list are managed separately.

The posts that you see on LINE VOOM are from the people you're following on LINE VOOM, not the users in your LINE friend list. In the same way, your posts will be visible to people who have followed you (your Followers).

After you initially set up your Following list, a list called "LINE friends" is created automatically under Privacy settings > Custom lists, but this list is managed separately from your actual LINE friend list. See this Help article for details.

For more information about how to configure LINE VOOM privacy settings and their specifications, see this Help article.

Sharing posts to your friends on LINE toggle
With LINE Timeline (the service we offered before LINE VOOM), there was a Friends privacy setting that let you share posts to only your friends on LINE. However, this privacy setting can no longer be used after you select the friends you want to follow on LINE VOOM from the From friends to followers pop-up that initially appears.

Instead, you can share posts to just your friends on LINE by using the LINE friends custom list that is automatically created after you initially set up your Following list.

To share posts to your friends on LINE: 
1. Tap Voom > "+" at the bottom right of the screen > Write.
2. Tap Public, the custom list name, or Only me at the top of the post editing screen.
Note: The privacy setting you choose will remain the next time you make a post.
3. Select Custom lists > LINE friends.
4. Tap "X" at the top of the screen.

Keep in mind that the LINE friends custom list will not automatically update after it has been created. If you don't want to share a post with everyone in the LINE friends custom list, you can delete users from it by tapping "-" > Remove.

If you have a new LINE friend you want to share your posts with, follow them and add them directly to the LINE friends custom list. See this Help article for details.

Important: If you block a friend on LINE after initially choosing who to follow, the LINE friends custom list will not automatically update. To prevent your posts from being seen by user you blocked on LINE, you will need to also block them on LINE VOOM.
