Facebook: how to mute someone’s posts without deleting it from my friends?


Millions of Facebook users have their friends and family added on the platform; However, not everyone wants or should tolerate the posts that they make, no matter how much friendly ties there are. Fortunately, there is a tool designed for this dilemma, since it allows you to silence the posts of someone in specific without having to remove them from your contact list.

The main advantage of silencing someone on Facebook is that you will not see what that person says, neither their photos nor their comments; but he will not know that he is muted, so you will prevent that contact from getting mad at you.

Also, to silence a contact on Facebook you don’t need to install any strange app, since it is a native function of the social network that you can apply on both an Android phone and an iPhone.

This Facebook method does not allow you to make a permanent change, as you can only mute a contact for 30 days . With this, the social network will temporarily stop showing that person’s publications without having to remove them from your friends list. Just follow these steps:

  • Go to facebook
  • Open your feed and find a post from that person
  • Tap on the three dots in the upper right corner
  • You will see a menu with options, click on the Pause for 30 days option .
