(Pocket-lint) – You’re finally tired of seeing that former high school classmate you haven’t seen in 15 years sharing his radical political ideas on Facebook. You’ve been there. You can choose to mute these kind of annoying people, or you can just remove them from your friends list and be done with them. Whatever your reason, it’s very easy to remove someone from your friends list on Facebook.
How to De-Same Someone on Facebook
To defuse someone, you need to go to their profile on Facebook. Go to the search box at the top of Facebook and search for the person by typing their profile name.
Then follow these steps:
- Select the Friends button under their cover photo.
- Select Unlove, then press OK.
These steps are the same whether you’re using Facebook from the Facebook mobile app, mobile browser, or desktop website.
What happens when you unfriend someone?
The person you unfriended will no longer appear in your friends list and their access to your profile and information will be limited if they are not public. She will not receive a notification. Note that you will also be removed from that person’s friends list, and if you want to be friends with them again on Facebook, you will need to add them as a friend again.
How do you stop someone from renaming you a friend?
If you don’t want someone to see your profile, add you as a friend, or send you a message, you should block their profile. Check out our guide to learn more: How to Block Someone on Facebook.
