Your "News feed" may contain those feeds or posts that you don’t want to see. Maybe you have a friend who posts irrelevant content which is beyond your interest. They may be your best friends or relatives who you can't unfriend. As you know, when you unfriend them you’re no longer friends with them and you can’t connect with them in future. In order to reconnect with them you'll need to send another friend request. Therefore, instead of "Unfriend" you can "Unfollow" them. Doing this will disable their posts in your "News Feed" but you’ll still be friends with them. Don’t worry, Facebook will not tell them that you’ve unfollowed them. If you want to see fewer posts from them, then you can choose "Hide post" option which is discussed below.
