How do I remove a friend from Facebook? Silently and gently


There can be many reasons. Annoying board posts, uninteresting content, spamming pictures of your beloved cat, which you view on average ten times a day while scrolling through the board. Whatever forces you to make this radical decision, you probably want to do it quietly. Below we present a step-by-step guide on how to remove a friend from Facebook without them knowing about it .

How do I hide Facebook posts?

But let’s assume you don’t necessarily want to kick someone out of your Facebook friends right away . You just don’t feel like reading any more content it shares. Fortunately, Facebook allows you to hide posts from selected users . You can do this in two ways, both on the mobile version of Facebook and on the computer.

Here’s how to hide Facebook posts.

Solution 1.

  1. You have to wait for a post from the person whose activity you want to hide on your board.
  2. Take a look at the top right corner of this post. You will see three bold dots there. Click on them.
  3. Select  hide all from.

Solution 2.

  1. Go to the profile of the friend whose posts you want to hide.
  2. In the area you will find the header signed as  watching .
  3. Deselect this option.

How do I remove a friend from Facebook?

However, if you decide to take a radical step and decide to completely remove someone from your group of friends , here’s what you need to do.

  1. Go to the profile of the friend you want to remove. You can do this by typing their username in the search field   or by clicking on their username in one of their posts.
  2. You’ll see a friends button there  which expands the list of different options to choose from.
  3. Select  remove from friends .

It looks a bit different in the mobile version of Facebook.

  1. Open  the Facebook application  on your phone.
  2.  Enter the name of the user you want to remove from your friends in the search field  .
  3. After searching, select this user from the search results list,
  4. Click on the icon labeled  with friends .
  5. Select  remove from friends .

The above method shows  how to remove a friend from Facebook without them knowing about it

. Until, of course. If a friend bothers to check on you, he or she may realize that you are no longer friends. Therefore, sometimes it is better to hide posts than to remove them from friends. As a last resort, you may have to reach for the heaviest cannon – i.e. the blockade.

How do I block someone on Facebook?

If simply removing someone from your friends isn’t enough , you may want to block them. To do this, follow the steps below.

  1. Go to the profile of the user you want to block.
  2. There are buttons next to his photo and name. The last one on the right is three dots.
  3. Click on the button with the three dots.
  4. Select  block .
  5. Confirm your decision.

Blocking a user will prevent them from having access to any of your content – they won’t even be able to search for your profile from the Facebook search engine. This is a much more radical step because your profile will no longer exist for the person you have blocked.
