Whether you are looking to get rid of some of your stale friends or want to clean up your news feed, unfollowing Facebook is a good way to go. This is especially true for those who have become a little bit jaded from all of the posts they have been seeing.
If you want to unfollow a friend, the best place to start is their profile page. There you can find the unfollow button, which will replace your name with the name of the profile you want to unfollow. You can also do the same for a group. If you are in a group, open it up and find the Unfollow tab. Unfollowing a group will not effect your membership in the group.
The unfollow button is a fairly small icon that appears next to the "Message" blue icon. To unfollow someone, you simply click the icon and follow the simple instructions. There are also third-party apps that can help you to find out who unfollowed you. But beware - they may end up compromising your personal information.
While you're at it, you might as well unfollow the other person to be sure you aren't wasting your time on someone who hasn't been following you back. Once you've unfollowed a person, you won't see any of their posts in your news feed. But if you unfollow a group, the only posts you'll see are those from the group.
A lot of Facebook users have fallen for the fake news craze and have stopped using the social networking site altogether. But for those who are still interested in interacting with friends and family, unfollowing is a cinch. It will keep your newsfeed clean and make it easier to find the posts you're looking for.
While you're at it, consider unfollowing all of your friends. The best part is that you can do this from the desktop browser version as well. You can also unfollow a friend from your mobile device. To do so, log into your account, find the person you want to unfollow, and tap the "Following" button.
The "Unfollow" button can also be found in your Facebook settings menu. The News Feed Preferences page is also a good place to start. The page enables you to control how much news you see, how many friends you have, and who you follow in your News Feed. You can also unfollow people in groups and pages.
You might also want to consider unfollowing someone's Facebook post if you think they are posting something inappropriate. This is the best way to avoid offensive posts. While this isn't the most effective way to get rid of them, it is an easy way to ensure you aren't seeing the posts you don't want to see.
The Facebook news feed is an exciting place to visit, but it can also be a bit of a pain if you aren't used to it. You may need to refresh your page to see all the posts from your friends.
