Facebook is a place where many small and big businesses promote their products and services. With over two billion active users, it is no wonder so many businesses use Facebook as their primary marketing tool.

Some users may, however, find the constant posting by business Facebook pages irritating. Also, Facebook pages are being bought and sold constantly. So page users liked in the past might no longer post relevant content, which can be frustrating for them as well.

Luckily, Facebook offers an unfollow option that prevents posts from showing on your Newsfeed.

The unfollow option slightly differs from the unlike option. The major difference is that when you unfollow a Facebook page, you will not see its posts or stories, but the page will remain on your list of liked pages.

Users can access the unfollow option from both mobile and computer devices. To learn how just follow the steps in the article.

Therefore, unfollowing pages that still have the like button differs from unfollowing new pages with only a follow button.
