How to Filter Unnecessary Likes and Comments from Your Facebook News Feed

 

Lately, Facebook’s news feed has gotten even more cluttered than usual, now informing you of every comment your friends make, and every page they like. If you’d like to keep your feed a little cleaner, reader Justin Beeson shows us how.

You could always customize Facebook with browser extensions or other tweaks, but if you just want to fix this annoyance, Facebook has a great method built-in. You’ll need a friends list to start with, but you should be using those anyway—it’s a great way to filter out the people you don’t really care about.

Click on your friend list of choice in the left sidebar, and click the “Manage List” button in the top right-hand corner. Click “Choose Update Types, and then click “Manage List” again to show the full list of possible updates. From there, you can uncheck things like “Comments and Likes”, “Games”, and any other updates that clutter up your news feed. Coupled with the friend list, it’s a great way to see only the good stuff on Facebook—and none of the junk.
