Want to know how to hide someone from your news feed on Facebook?
What do you do when one of your friends on Facebook starts posting things you don’t want to see all over your news feed? You don’t need to unfriend someone on Facebook just to stop seeing what they post, instead you can just hide someone from your news feed! Read on and I’ll show you how!
How to hide someone from your news feed on Facebook…
Facebook is how a lot of people stay in touch these days. Friends and family share stories, pictures, or links to interesting stuff, but sometimes one of your friends on Facebook start posting things you don’t want to see.
Whether it’s political messages, endless pictures of their favorite pet cat, or anything else you just don’t care for, you don’t need to unfriend them to stop seeing their posts.
Instead, you can simply hide that person from your news feed!
By hiding someone from your news feed, you’ll still remain ‘friends’ with them, you just won’t have to see all of the things they post (If you do want to see what they’ve been posting you can still go to their profile page).
To hide someone from your news feed on Facebook:
- Log in to your Facebook account from your computer.
- Use the search bar to find the person you want to hide from your news feed, and go to their profile page.
- Toward the top right side of their profile page, hover your mouse over the button that says ‘Friends‘, and you’ll see a menu appear.
- From this menu, click on where it says ‘Show in News Feed‘. You will see the check mark go away once you’ve clicked.
Once you’ve done this, you will no longer see stories from this person in your news feed. You will still be friends with them, but you won’t have to suffer through their annoying posts anymore!
If you want to see their stories in your news feed again, you can always go through this same procedure, and just re-enable this option from the menu you found in step 3 above.
