How To: Remove a Facebook Friend's Posts From Your News Feed

facebook_prohibitedEver had a Facebook friend that you didn't want to offend, but their posts were so annoying that you wished you didn't have to see them? (OK, all of my friends and subscribers can stop nodding right now!)

Maybe they change their profile and cover image three times a day; Maybe they post 25 times a day; Maybe they spend all day posting updates about the game they are playing; Maybe they listen and share wayyyy too many Spotify songs; Maybe they.... well, you get the point.

Muting a friend on Facebook is actually very simple. All you have to do is:
  1. Go to the profile of the friend you want to remove from your feed;
  2. Find the "Friends" button;
  3. Hover over the button for a few seconds and a dropdown will appear;
  4. Uncheck "Show in News Feeds."
That's it. Your friend has been muted. They shouldn't receive any type of notification, so this little trick shouldn't hurt your friendship. It will just help save your sanity.

Hope this helps!
