How To Turn Off Suggested Posts On Facebook

Unlike Instagram, Facebook doesn’t let you turn off “Suggested for you” posts. However, you can manage what you see as suggested posts in your Facebook feed with a simple tweak - hiding the post.

Hiding a post from your Feed helps Facebook learn more about what you want to see in your Feed. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Tap the three horizontal dots icon on the suggested post.
  • Then, select how you want to manage this content:
    • Tap Hide post to see less content like this.
    • Press Snooze the Page for 30 days to temporarily stop seeing content from them.
    • Choose Hide all from the Page to stop seeing content from them.
    • Tap Find support or report post if the content concerns you.

Alternatively, you can use a browser extension called F.B.(FluffBusting)Purity if you want to get rid of suggested posts completely. This extension hides all the ads, game spam, sponsored posts and suggested posts on Facebook and generally makes Facebook less annoying to use.

Why Am I Getting So Many Suggested For You Posts On Facebook?

To help you discover new things on Facebook, the algorithm suggests certain content in your Feed. Content that is suggested for you can be videos, photos or articles from Pages and groups that you don't already follow but might be interested in.

This suggested content is based on what may be relevant to you and is influenced by your past Facebook behaviour. Some of the most important factors influencing the suggested content include your friends' activity on Facebook, the type of content you've liked and commented on in the past, your location and so on.
