From enabling you to connect with your loved ones to keeping up with celebrities, Facebook is versatile. Additionally, Facebook allows users to follow people to keep up with their posting content.

If you are confused about the people or pages you follow on Facebook, this article should clarify all your doubts.

About Facebook Following

Facebook (or Meta) allows you to follow other people and pages on their platform.

In common terms, you “make friends” on Facebook. So, when you are following a Facebook account, it means that you are subscribing to their profile or page. So, every time they post new content, it should appear on your Facebook feed and even your notifications.

Many first-time users need clarification on whether to follow someone and be friends with someone on Facebook. These aren’t essentially the same. When you follow someone on Facebook, it doesn’t mean that you are friends with them.

But, if you follow a person (especially celebrities), you get access to the content they share publicly on their profile or page.

  • On the app, tap on the stacked menu and tap on Pages. Tap on “Pages you follow.”

How Do I Edit My Following List on Facebook?

If you follow many people on Facebook and want to tailor the news feed so the content is tailored to your needs, we recommend that you edit your following list.

  • You need to open Settings and Privacy, tap on Settings, and then select News Feed Preferences.
  • Under that, you will find “Following.” Depending on what kind of content you wish to see on your Facebook news feed, you can personalize the preferences from there.

How Do I Unfollow All of My Facebook?

If you have been wanting to unfollow everyone on Facebook at once, it isn’t possible right now. Facebook has no built-in feature that allows users to wipe out their friend list with a single click entirely.

Instead, you’d have to unfollow the users one by one from the friend list tab on your profile, which can be tedious.

Can I Hide Who I Am Following on Facebook?

Many Facebook users who aren’t friends with others follow their page or account to keep up with their account activity.

If you want to stay inconspicuous and don’t let anyone know who you are following, it is possible, and it takes a few tweaks to the settings.

Since Facebook offers a diversity of privacy and security options, it isn’t surprising that you can easily conceal who can see who you are following on the social media platform.

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Login to your Facebook account via your PC or mobile app
  • Once on the news feed or home page, navigate to Settings
  • Under that, scroll down until you find the Audience and Visibility section
  • Tap on “Followers and Public Content”

Once the options open, click on the appropriate options to set who can see the pages, people, or accounts you follow on Facebook.

Once you select the appropriate option, you can save your new Privacy settings, and things should be hidden away from prying eyes.

How do I stop Automatically Following People or Pages on Facebook?

Let us assume it’s been a long time since you have checked your “Following” tab on Facebook. But you notice various new pages and accounts on your news feed. And the weird part is that you haven’t followed any of those accounts in the first place.

Sounds weird. This can happen when Facebook automatically decides to follow random accounts and pages. It could be a glitch or an error from Facebook’s end.

If you are tired of noticing irrelevant accounts and pages on your news feed, here’s what you need to do to stop automatically following people on Facebook:

  • Open the Facebook app and log into your account with the credentials
  • Navigate to Settings and then click on Public Posts
  • Under that, click on the “Who can follow me” option
  • Select “Friends” from the list of drop-down options

Once you do this, people you don’t know won’t be able to follow your account or get updates on your posts. It is a way of blocking third-party or, outsiders and non-mutuals from following your Facebook account.

Is it Safe to Follow Unknown people on Facebook?

If you are worried about following people you don’t know on Facebook, it is a subjective experience. Ideally, we’d recommend you follow safe and reliable pages with a good following.

Also, when following individual accounts, ensure that these are people you at least have an idea about. The last thing you want to do is follow someone who posts random and scam links, leading to your account getting hacked.


Facebook’s Follow option is a great way to keep up with people or organize your news feed with relevant content without needing to add someone to your friend list. However, now and then, you must cross-check who you are following and rearrange things according to preference. We hope this article gives you all the insights you need to sort that out.
