If you don’t manage your Facebook feed, it can quickly become annoying. This annoyance is inevitable since you can’t control the things posted by your Friends, or the pages for businesses and organizations that interest you.
But there is something you can do about it--and Facebook has recently updated their Settings to make it easer. By following these steps, you can transform your News Feed into something much more manageable.
Start by going to the Facebook App on your smartphone, or Facebook on a computer.
If using the App, go to your profile by selecting the three lines on the bottom right, and finding the settings option. Then select News Feed Preferences.

Unfollow people to hide their posts

Reconnect with people you unfollow
