Unliking Pages Is More Difficult With Facebook’s Revamped News Feed

Facebook users may unlike one change in the social network’s revamped News Feed: They can no longer unlike pages after hiding stories from those pages.

Sister blog Inside Facebook reported on the removal of the unlike option from this stage of the Facebook experience, saying that users with the new News Feed who wish to unlike pages will now have to either visit those pages and click unlike or hover over links in News Feed in a process that takes several steps.

Inside Facebook added that this may result in lower reach figures for pages if users cease engagement with them but do not bother to go through the process of unliking them.

Readers: How often do you change your minds about pages you have liked?
