How to Favorite a Friend or Page on Facebook

In this post, you’ll see how to favorite friends and pages you liked or followed and how to edit and delete favorites.

You’ll also see the steps to sort the group post by most recent.

Here are a few things to keep in mind before you proceed:

  • You can favorite friends and pages and not groups.
  • The number of favorites you can have is 30. To add a new one after reaching the maximum number, remove someone from the Favorites.

Let’s begin.

You can use the search box to find the one you want quickly. There is also a filter available that you can use.

The filter options are:
