Whether it’s because we’ve been on the account for a long time or aren’t very attentive to everything that shows up on our Facebook feeds (or where it comes from), most of us have no control over the number of Pages we follow.

Why should I take care of which pages or users I follow on Facebook?
By liking a page and making new friends on Facebook , we automatically start following them. Therefore, we will be notified of its content and we will see it constantly , so we must be aware of who we become a follower of.
Facebook recommends you similar content
Now, we may not want to see that type of content for various reasons, either because we lost interest in the page or because of the suggestions of similar to them that Facebook recommends based on what we like, which could seem annoying.
Appear at the top of the news feed
The pages or accounts that we follow will be the first to fill our news section , sometimes limiting the content that is truly of interest to us or removing priority from it.
It can also happen that, although we have a friend on Facebook, we do not want to be aware of what they share on their profile, so we must also take care of the users we are following.
What do I need on my mobile if I want to remove a user from my follow list?
To unfollow someone on Facebook, we need to log in to our account , from a browser or using the mobile app.
A browser with the Facebook session started
We can access our Facebook account using any browser, such as Chrome, Firefox or Safari, to modify the following list that we have in it.
Facebook mobile app
Mostly we have one of the versions of the Facebook app installed on our mobile with which we can access it in a faster and more practical way to stop following who we want.
How do I remove a Facebook profile or page from my follow list?
Unfollowing a Facebook account is as simple as blocking, deleting or taking a break from it or making any configuration in our profile.
From an Android or iOS device
First of all, we must enter the profile of the page or that of the user that we want to eliminate from our following.
If it is a page we will find a button with three points in a lateral position. We must press it and select Following (or Manage tracking settings, if it is an Android device), and then Stop following.
In the case of users, we will directly have the Following button . We will click on this and then on “Stop following”.
Inside a MacBook
In case you are using a MacBook computer, we enter the profile and we can Unfollow directly on the designated button.
If it is a page, when breaking down the options by pressing the three points, we must go to “Follow-up settings”, mark the corresponding circle to stop following and refresh the page so that this is completed.
If my computer has Microsoft Windows
When using a computer with the Windows operating system, unfollowing a page or profile is not much different than using a cell phone.
First, we enter the page or profile, select the three points or “following” and stop following in the designated option.
We can also unfollow, through any of the devices, from the news section, by clicking on the three dots on the side in the upper right corner of a post on the page or user and clicking the option to Unfollow [the account ].
Why doesn’t the option to unfollow appear on a profile?
With some pages, a situation may arise in which we cannot find the option to stop following it. In that case, the page will have a button to like it, which translates to follow it.
So by removing the “like” we will easily unfollow her if she does not allow us to unfollow her in another way.
Being a user, each one can limit and control who follows them on Facebook , but it is not possible to prevent others from following them. So that will always be an option to not see your posts in News Feed.
