With the new changes to Facebook Graph Search, the pages you like on Facebook will soon appear in search results. For most of us, there’s nothing to worry about. Declaring you “Like” How I Met Your Mother is just a sign you enjoyed the show’s witty writing before Barney and Robin got together… for the second time.
However, for one reason or another, you might have liked a page you shouldn’t have. If you’re uncomfortable with unwittingly shilling for companies you no longer support or if you just want to avoid expressing your love for anything embarrassing, here’s the best way to remove your unwanted page Likes:
1. Visit your profile and click the Likes app (it might be hidden under the application dropdown button).
2. Scroll to the bottom of your Likes page and click “Show Other Pages.”
3. If you’re like me and have gone on some major liking sprees, you might need to click on the “show more” button to see the complete list.
Over the past four years—Facebook pages have been around since 2009—I’ve liked around 300 different pages. I’m really into Ghostbusters, Disney World and social media, so don’t worry if you haven’t liked as many pages as I have.
To remove a page from your list, you’ll need to unlike it. Hover over a page title, click the Like button, and then select “Unlike.”
This is just a demonstration. Please keep liking Portent’s Facebook page.
