With so many great fan pages on Facebook today it’s hard not to like them them all!
Liking a page connects you to it and allows you to receive regular updates as well as messages and invites from that particular page. These will show on your wall and in your Facebook inbox. Liking a page also shows your friends that you like a page.
But what if you no longer want to get updates from a Facebook business page?
In the past, you have two options available. One is to Hide the page and the other one is to Unlike the page as you can read on our previous blog post.
Today, however, you only have one step to do to unlike a Facebook page and you do it on your personal profile page. It is here on the profile page (lower left column) that the pages you like are shown.
How to Unlike a Facebook Fan Page
If you don’t want to show certain Facebook pages in your profile, then the best thing to do is to Unlike them.
To do this, scroll down to the bottom of your profile and look for the Likes section on the left column. Then look for the page that you want to Unlike and click on it.
Next, you will be directed to that specific page. To unlike, hover your mouse over the button that says Liked then choose the Unlike option in the dropdown menu that shows.
Clicking Unlike will immediately remove the page from your profile.
The Unlike function has been made easier to use. Previously, users were finding it hard to unlike a page within Facebook itself or from other websites with a Facebook Like widget.
Currently, Facebook only allows a user to like up to 500 pages. So if you have reached the limit and you find several new pages that you really love, you can always Unlike the others in your list to add the new ones.
