As it happens in real life, on social networks like Facebook, Instagram or any other, we make new friends and other friendships are no longer part of our lives. It is for this reason that there is the “unfriend” button on Facebook or the “unfollow” button on Instagram and Twitter, which would be like not seeing or talking with a friend from the past in the real world. So, in this article we will explain how to unfriend someone on Facebook.

What happens when you unfriend someone on Facebook

First of all, we will explain what happens when you decide to stop following someone on Facebook, so that you understand what this implies. Let’s say that when you unfollow someone on Facebook, it means that from that moment neither you nor he can see the profile of the other, unless you become friends again in this social network.

So, we are saying that not only he will stop seeing your photos, your publications and everything you share, but you will also stop seeing everything he uploads and writes on this platform.

It has to be mentioned that the other person will not find out that you have stopped following him, unless one day he decides to look for you and see that you are no longer friends on Facebook. This is because when a you decide to unfollow someone on Facebook, the other person also unfollows you. Facebook doesn’t ask the other person if he agrees or not with this; Facebook does not ask the other person if he agrees with this; it simply break this friendship.
