How to Unfollow on Facebook while Staying Connected {Quick Tip}

It may be due to experiencing social media overwhelm, wanting to disconnect from a friend or family member who posts too often (or too controversially), or a sense of obligation to accept a Page like request from someone you know who just started their own business. Let’s face it: We all have been faced with the awkward dilemma where we don’t want to see a friend’s or fan page’s updates in our news feed, yet we can’t bring ourselves to fully detach.

Thank goodness for the added feature from Facebook to remain connected as a Friend or a Fan while unfollowing their updates.
