How to Unfriend Someone on Facebook

It happens to everyone: After a while, you start to feel like a few people are cluttering up Facebook for you and want to unfriend some.

Maybe you just feel like you have too many friends, or maybe you and a friend have legitimately drifted apart. Maybe you had a big falling out and just need a break. Don’t worry; you can unfriend just like you friend people.

How to Unfriend Someone on Facebook

To unfriend someone, do the following:

  1. Log in to Facebook.
  2. Go to the person’s timeline.

  3. Click the Friends button.

    A menu appears that is for assigning people to friend lists. The last item on this list is unfriend.

  4. Click the Unfriend link.

    A window will pop up asking if you’re sure you want to remove this friend.

  5. Click the Remove from Friends button.

    Take a moment of silence. Okay, that was long enough.

People aren’t notified when you unfriend them, but people who care about you (that is, family, close friends) have a tendency to notice on their own that, hey, you’re not in their list of friends anymore. This can sometimes lead to awkwardness, so it might be worth using your privacy settings to further limit these people’s knowledge of your life before you unfriend them.


Delete Multiple Facebook Friends in 2024

Go to your list of friends. Place your mouse close to the username of the friend you wish to unfriend and click the “Friend” tab. A drop-down menu displays, with the option to “unfriend” at the bottom.

To remove a friend from your list, select the “Unfriend” button. A confirmation box will appear on Facebook. Select “Remove from Friends” from the drop-down menu.

The real trick is about to begin. A pop-up will appear on Facebook informing you that a certain friend has been removed from your list. If you tap the OK tab in the box, the page will reload, slowing down the rest of the “unfriending” procedure. So do not tap OK and immediately move on to the next unfriend button! Isn’t it easy?!

Lots of people go through periodic friend-cleaning. For example, after changing jobs or moving, you may notice that you want to keep in touch with some people from that chapter in your life; others, you just don’t. Unfriend away.



Deleting your friends on Facebook will help get rid of trolls, abusive fellows, and people you do not engage with. It is a great way to declutter your friend list. In this article, we explore all the steps involved in unfriending someone on Facebook.
