How to have a control over your Facebook news feeds
Facebook provides an option that lets you exercise some control over what you can see and which friend or page’s post you would not like to see that often on your feed.
Every post that you find on your Facebook feed is always something enriching and joyful or educational. However, for those of you who do not live in that wonderful parallel universe and are stuck in out boring mundane reality with posts that make you cringe or jokes that stopped being there after the thirtieth time it got shared, worry not, all hope is not lost.
Maybe your friend doesn’t seem to understand that not everyone understands the joke that they’re making. While it may be impossible to stop your friends from ever posting the same meme over and over again (at least through that are not illegal), we can exercise some control over what you can see and which friend or page’s post you would not like to see that often on your News feed.

If you have a change of heart, all you have to do is go back to your friend's profile or revisit the page and click on ‘Follow,' this will let their posts reappear on your feed.
