Don't worry if you have accepted friend request of any strangers or annoying acquaintances, who occupy unnecessary space in your Facebook news feed, now you can unfollow them without unfriending.
In a statement the company said, Facebook has launched a News Feed settings tool to let you control posts that you do not want to see.
Just click on the grey arrows after login , which appear on the top right corners of posts and give you the option of unfollowing a person.
Moreover, users can use the grey arrows to hide stories they are not interested in reading.
This can help block out not only puppy and kitten pictures but also selfies from that obsessive sharer.
However, it was never so easy to remove the brands and websites you have Liked on Facebook over the years.
This facility is available on the mobile and desktop versions of the site, and will come to the Facebook app within the coming weeks.
