I am someone who likes to use facebook only for social networking and staying in touch with friends. I can totally understand if you decide to “unfollow” a few from your friends list because of their burning, politically-motivated and toxic posts.
The central theme of such posts is basically hatred. Be it justifying or inciting hatred towards people that do not support their political ideologies, belong to a different religion or community, speak a different language or simply belong to a different region. In fact, not just the people that make such posts, you can very well “unfollow” someone specific for no specific reason! I mean, why waste your social media time on something you don’t like? Right?

Why waste your social media time on something you don’t like?
That’s the question I asked myself before I started “unfollowing” people posting stuff that I don’t wish to see on my timeline. If you are wondering how to “unfollow” someone or, better yet, take a step ahead and tell facebook how posts like these are spoiling your facebook experience, feel free to read how to Get rid of annoying facebook posts (in 5 seconds or less!)
However, now that some time has passed (maybe a year), you may consider following them again. But how do you do that?
Do you even remember the hordes of people you unfollowed? Probably not. And that’s why this blog tells you how to do it right. Let’s go ahead step by step,
On the facebook homepage, click on the 3 dots in front of News Feed,
In the drop down menu, select Edit Preferences option,
A new window opens, go to the Reconnect with people you unfollowed option,
Now this is the key step. This is where you may want to check the posts of the people you had unfollowed earlier just to see what kind of stuff they have shared recently (most likely, they are still sharing crap that you don’t need!). But if you find someone that has had a change of hearts and is only sharing harmless selfies, go ahead click on their profile pic and then click Done
And that completes this exercise!
To close this blog, I would like to remind you that all of us in India (and any other democracy for that matter) have the right to express our views, but at the same time, also have the rights to avoid people spilling venom.
So if you would rather concentrate on something better every day, feel free to unfollow the negatives and get on with your peaceful social life. Cheers 😉
