Facebook pages can be a great way to stay connected with the companies and brands that interest you. But sometimes you just want say in your profile that you literally “like” something without actually reading a flood of posts.
For example, I love MotoGP racing and Ducati motorcycles. It would be ridiculous for my profile to omit them in a list of things I like. However, the Facebook pages for both of those brands often include spoilers for races that take place overseas which haven’t yet reached my television.
So here’s how to keep some of your beloved institutions off your News Feed.
1) Find the most recent post from the page in question in your News Feed. If you don’t see a recent post in your feed, you can use the pulldown menu from the top right of the feed to see updates from Pages only.
2) In the upper right corner of one of those posts, there should be an invisible “X” that appears when you move your mouse there. Click it to bring up the Unlike or Hide menu.
3) Select “Hide all by…” to keep the Page’s posts off your News Feed.
So now your News Feed is cleaner. You won’t see unwanted posts, but you can still show your affection in your profile, and comment on those pages when you choose to visit them.
