How-To Clean Up Your Facebook News Feed (Without Suffering the Friend’s Guilt Trip)

By on

Undo, Undo and Undo

But what happens if you want to readd that friend to appear on your news feed. You might now want to see notifications of a particular app since you had a change of heart about it. Or, what happens if you change your mind and want to see messages from a particular page (let’s say, based on the example above of The Daily Show, that because of the US election, you want to be notified about their sketches).

There is a way to reverse the changes. All you need to do is simply go to the left-most column and under “Favourites” just hover on the “News Feed” link. You will see a pencil icon appear – click on that icon and then go to “Edit Settings”.

A dialog box, like this below, should show up.

The dialog box will show you what friends, what apps and what pages you have decided to hide from your news feed. To unhide those posts, just click on the cross, and it will reappear. Press save and the page will refresh, and the updates will now appear.

Hopefully, these steps will help you ‘de-clutter’ your news feed and predominantly show you what you want to see as opposed to what you want to avoid.
