Facebook by default makes you follow all people you added as friends. Thus you’ll always see their newest posts on your Facebook feeds. Here’s how to unfollow on Facebook to stop seeing some friends’ posts.

Facebook has a feature that allows you to keep friends while stopping their newest posts on your feeds. This makes it convenient because generally, you’d have to unfriend someone to stop seeing their posts.

You are not just able to unfollow someone on Facebook. You can also unfollow Facebook groups and pages, so you can now keep joining the group and keep liking the page while being able to decide whether they can show their newest posts on your feed or not.

Is there a way to tell if someone unfollowed you on Facebook?

Unfortunately, there’s no way to tell who follows or unfollows you on Facebook. Unlike Instagram, Facebook doesn’t let you know who follows you.

But, it’s good to know that you have the freedom to unfollow anyone on Facebook without them knowing, while still keep them as your friends.


Facebook lets you choose who can show their posts on your newsfeed. Now you won’t see specific people’s posts on your newsfeed anymore while keeping them as friends.
