We get you, you are not really fond of all of your Facebook friends or Instagram and TikTok followers seeing your posts, and you want to make it difficult for them to get updates from you.

How to Remove Friends/Followers

As per Tech Crunch, Twitter is currently testing a safety feature on its web version that allows its users to remove their followers without the need to block them.

However, it is to note that this feature is only available to a limited number of users in the microblogging platform.

Nevertheless, other social media sites, like TikTok, Facebook, and Instagram, have already introduced this function in their platform for quite some time.

If ever you have missed it, here's how to use them.

In this photo illustration, a person looks at a smart phone with a Facebook App logo displayed on the background, on August 17, 2021, in Arlington, Virginia.

This one might be an obvious option for some. Thus, birthing to the term "unfriend," which is used to say that you're deleting a person from your Facebook friends list, according to Interesting Literature.

Despite that, some folks may still not know how to "unfriend" someone on Facebook.

To do so, go to the profile of the user that you wish to remove as a friend, and hover on the "Friends" button, and select "Unfriend."

How to Remove an Instagram Follower

To get rid of your unwanted Instagram followers, it is relatively as easy as how "unfriend" works on Facebook, as per LifeHacker.

However, the steps are a little different.

First, open your Instagram profile from the app of the social media photo-sharing platform.

Then, click on the Followers button to see the list of people following you.

After doing so, you may now browse your followers and tap on the "Remove" button next to their name.

WASHINGTON, DC - AUGUST 07: In this photo illustration, the download page for the TikTok app is displayed on an Apple iPhone on August 7, 2020 in Washington, DC. On Thursday evening, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that bans any transactions between the parent company of TikTok, ByteDance, and U.S. citizens due to national security reasons.

Just like the older counterparts of TikTok, Instagram and Facebook, the video-sharing platform also provides its users an option to get rid of their followers. And yet again, it works without needing to click that block button.

To do so, go to your follower list on the TikTok app found on your "Me" page. Then, click the three dots option found on the name of the user following you. After which, tap the "Remove this follower" button.
