Unfollow refers to unsubscribing from someone’s social media account. You will no longer see their posts on your feed when you unfollow them on social media.
If you don’t want to see someone’s posts but prefer to maintain the connection, you can mute them instead.
For some, unfollowing is a way to declutter their feed and see content from people they are interested in.
Others use it to express displeasure with someone’s posts. For example, if they are constantly posting negative or controversial content.
Unfollowing can also show that you no longer have a relationship with someone. For example, if you unfollow your ex.
