Facebook has become an integral part of everyone’s lives due to the phenomenon called social networking. One can argue that the biggest thing to happen to social media and social networking is Facebook, and they would be right. Whats more is that the company has cemented its feet into the social scene further after the recent acquisitions of Instagram and WhatsApp, making it also one of the most rounded out platforms on the internet and a content creator’s paradise.
Connecting with other contacts or users on Facebook happens by means of a Friend Request. You locate a user, you send him/her a friend request, and if they accept it, you two are connected. Many times, it so happens that you end up sending a friend request or accept a friend request from a user who seems familiar but later turns out to be another person entirely. To avoid misunderstandings, the best solution is to unfriend them on Facebook.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to unfriend a user on Facebook.
Step 1. Open the web browser on your PC/Laptop.
Step 2. In the URL bar, type in www.facebook.com.
Step 3. Sign in to your Facebook account.
Step 4. In the search bar, type in the name of the user you want to unfriend.
Step 5. Click on the correct user profile and you will now see their profile page.
Step 6. Click on the button that says ‘Friends‘.
Step 7. Click on the ‘Unfriend‘ option from the drop down menu.
Step 8. You will now be unfriended from the chosen user.
Make sure that you do a through analysis on whether or not you really want to unfriend a particular user, because if you go through with the process, and change your mind later, it is totally up to them to accept your new friend request.
