What happens when you unsubscribe from a friend on Facebook


Facebook as we know it keeps changing. Options are constantly added and removed also - all this depends on the founder Mark Zukerberg and what he thinks users most need. When you add someone as a friend an interesting thing happens. You are subscribed to that person and so updates from that person will appear on your Facebook News Feed. News Feed is the view of all updates presented to you when you log-in to Facebook. There used to be a lot of different ways to stop stories appearing on your News Feed from people who you don't really want to follow. The latest is the ability to simply unsubscribe from them. Now when you see constant updates from people appearing in your News Feed. You can use the drop-down arrow and choose to 'Unsubscribe' from them - you can also 'Unsubscribe from Status Updates'. More on that in another post.

 

So if your wondering what happens when you unsubscribe from a friend on Facebook this is what happens.


1. All updates from that person will stop appearing on your Facebook News Feed.

2. If you unsubscribe from only certain activities that others will appear on your news feed. Unsubscribe stops all activities from appearing on your news feed. This would mean no status updates, no game activities and no likes to name a few.

3. They still remain your friend on Facebook but their updates don't appear on your news feed.
