Facebook has been tweaking its social media platform over the years, and recently, they quietly put in a ‘Follow’ feature for all the users. So now, when a user accepts your Friend Request, you become their ‘Friend’, but now you also start following them on Facebook. When you follow someone on Facebook, you get notified of their recent posts and comments.
If you do not want these notifications, you don’t have to unfriend them from the platform. The right solution is the ‘Unfollow’ them on Facebook.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to ‘Unfollow’ a user on Facebook.
Step 1. Open the web browser on your desktop/laptop.
Step 2. In the URL bar, enter the following link – www.facebook.com
Step 3. Search for the user you want to unfollow.
Step 4. Click on their name or profile photo to open their profile on Facebook.
Step 5. Click on the ‘Following‘ button near their profile.
Step 6. From the drop-down menu, click on the ‘Unfollow *user*‘ button.
You will stop receiving updates from that user on Facebook, but you will still remain Friens on the platform.
In the future, if you wish to Follow the user again, you can do so by heading to their profile and clicking on the ‘Follow‘ button.
So this is how to unfollow a user on Facebook without unfriending them.
