Facebook’s search function allows you to search for people, posts, photos, videos, groups, and more, based on your own Facebook activity. This includes the pages you like on Facebook as well. For most of us, there’s nothing to worry about. Declaring you “Like” Grey’s Anatomy is just a sign you enjoyed the show, at least until the 007 episode.
Oh, and I should probably mention, if you need a little more help in managing social media for your business than simply unliking a page, we’re basically the Shonda Rhimes of social media management.
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:
How to Find Facebook Pages You’ve Liked
- Visit your profile and click ‘More’ on the right side of the navigation bar. In the dropdown, select ‘Likes.’
- Hover over the ‘Liked’ button for each page you’ve liked and you will see the option to unlike the page. If you have the new Facebook format, hover over the image.
- Pages you’ve liked are grouped by category, and you also have the ability to control the privacy of those groups. If you want to limit who can see what you’ve liked, select ‘Manage’ (the pencil icon) on the upper right corner. If you have the new format, it will appear as three dots in the same location. Then select ‘Edit the Privacy of Your Likes’ (or follows).
- From here, you will be able to select the level of access people have to the pages you have liked.
Hopefully, this helps you update your profile to be a more accurate reflection of who you are today. I, for one, am no longer a fan of Hip-Hop Tuesdays at my High School. That being said, this is just a demonstration. Please keep liking Portent’s Facebook page.
