How To Unsubscribe On Facebook

As someone who likes to tidy things around, I prefer to keep a neat News Feed on my Facebook. I am talking about those annoying news posts or videos that one neighbor keeps sharing every day.

Facebook provides an easy and efficient method to unsubscribe from posts that you don’t want appearing in your news feed. Most of the time, you can just go to the “Settings” option by clicking on the three dots and finding an option called “Unfollow”.

In this article, I explore some of the different approaches you can take to unsubscribe from personal accounts, pages, groups, or apps and games on Facebook. Finally, we will take a look at some of the frequently asked questions about unsubscribing from Facebook.

So, as it can be seen, unsubscribing on Facebook is a relatively easy task. Facebook values the power of its users, so it has given complete control over what information you don’t want to see in your Facebook news feed. What makes it better is that you can opt-in to resubscribe any time you want. The goal here is to make you feel valued by showing only those posts that matter most to you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I unsubscribe temporarily on Facebook?

If you use the “Snooze” button instead of “Unfollow”, Facebook lets you temporarily unsubscribe someone for 30 days. After that period is over, you are automatically resubscribed to them.

Can someone find out if I have unsubscribed them?

Facebook doesn’t share that kind of private information amongst its users. So, if you unsubscribe someone on Facebook, they have no way of finding out.

Can I just unfriend or block them instead?

Unsubscribe differs from both unfriend and block features of Facebook. If you unfriend someone, they will be removed from your friend list, and you need to resend them a friend request to reconnect. If you block someone, neither of you will be able to see each other. With unsubscribe or unfollow, you have the option to revisit their timeline any time you want. Also, they will never find out you’ve unsubscribed to them as per the rules of Facebook.
