Features you never knew about, shortcuts to see more of your favourite posts, and more.
1. Unfriending isn’t your only option
Everyone has those few Facebook friends who posts are always annoying or argumentative or both. (I know – I can see them.)
But if those friends are your real-life friends or relatives, unfriending them could cause some tumult in the real world.
Here’s the solution: Click the “Following” button at the top of the page and select “Unfollow.”
You’ll stop seeing their posts, you’ll still be “friends” with them, and their feelings don’t get hurt.
2. I can tell you who’s not friending you
Go to the “Friends” section of your profile and click “Friend Requests.”
You’ll be able to see who sent requests to you, but when you “view sent requests,” you’ll see who ignored your own.
Sure, it may hurt a bit to know that these people denied your friendship, but trust me.
You’re better off without them.
3. Erase search history
Every Facebook user makes some searches they’re not proud of, whether it’s an ex’s profile or something not safe for work.
But never fear: I can erase all traces them.
Click the downward-pointing arrow in the top right-hand corner of your screen and go to “Activity Log.”
From there, click “More” under “Comments” and look for “Search history.”
If there’s one particular search you’re less than proud of, search through the chronological entries and click the crossed circle next to one to delete it.
Otherwise, you can wipe your slate clean by clicking “Clear searches” at the top of the page.
