How to Follow or Unfollow Someone on Facebook

In this post, you’ll see the steps to follow or unfollow a page or profile on Facebook.

I use the app (Android phone and iPhone) and FB desktop version. Let’s begin.

How to Follow Someone on Facebook

When you follow someone, you see that person’s updates in your “News Feed.” You can follow pages too.

Let’s see the steps to follow someone (or page) on the Facebook desktop version and app.

Notes

  • You can even follow someone who isn’t your friend. Remember, when you become a friend of someone on Facebook, you automatically follow them.
  • Remember that you can follow a page without “Like” the page. When you “Like” a page, you automatically follow that page.
  • If you want to temporarily (30 days) stop updates from a specific person, page, or group from appearing on your “News Feed,” try the Snooze feature.

PC

If you want to follow a person who is not your friend, follow these steps:

Go to the FB profile of the person you want to follow. You can use the search box to find the profile.

You’ll see the “Follow” button after you hit the three horizontal dots.

Click on it to follow that person.

That’s all.

If you want to follow a friend, go to their profile, and you’ll see Friends. Hit it.

Click on Follow, and that’s it.

Note: Not only personal profile, but you can follow pages too. Go to the page you prefer. Click on the three horizontal dots button. Select Follow option.

How to Unfollow Someone on Facebook

If you’re unhappy with updates of someone and don’t want to unfriend them, you can unfollow them.

Unfollow allows you to stay friends on Facebook. This one will stop their updates from appearing on your “News Feed” permanently.

You can unfollow anyone you want. You can unfollow pages too.

Also, note that your friends won’t be notified when you unfollow them.

Let’s see the steps to unfollow someone (or page) on the Facebook desktop version and app.

Go to the profile of the person you want to unfollow. Hit “Following.” Select the “Unfollow” option.
