Advice

  • You can unsubscribe from a user at any time by returning to their profile page by hovering over the Subscribed button and selecting Unsubscribe. If it's a page, click I like and select I no longer love. On your wall, position the mouse pointer over the name of a person's post.
  • Most prominent people and organizations such as celebrities, politicians, and businesses will have the subscription feature enabled on their accounts. Stay on top of the news from these organizations or your favorite users by searching for and subscribing to their profiles.
  • All of your friends on Facebook are subscribed to you by default. If you no longer want a particular user to follow your updates, you must block that user in your privacy settings.
