Situation B:


Or even this,Situation C:


Whenever you LIKE a page, FOLLOW a person or ADD FRIENDS, it will show up in your friend’s news feed and I have seen it lead to many awkward and embarrassing situations on Facebook. Well, I have found and tested the solutions for this problem a few months ago and I decided to share it with you guys. I have broken it down to 3 parts and here it goes:

The Solution!

Pre-requisite: Go to your Facebook’s Activity Log


Step 1: Click on the triangle beside the “?” button on the top-right of your screen

Part 1: Disable the “Now following”


Step 1: Click on the “Following” tab in the list on the left side of the screen.

Step 2: Click on the “Privacy” button beside the “?”

Step 3: Select “Only Me”

Part 2: Disable the “Now friends with”


Step 1: Click on the “Friends” tab in the list on the left side of the screen

Step 2: Click on the “Friends activity can show up in” button beside the “Search” button

Step 3: Uncheck all

Part 3: Disable the “Like Page A”


Step 1: Click on the “Likes” tab in the list on the left-side of your screen

Step 2: Click on the “Pages and Interests” that appears under it

Step 3: Click on the “Pencil” button

Step 4: Click “Hidden from timeline” for each of the Page likes you want to hide

Note: Unfortunately, due to recent changes to Facebook, there is no way to disable all at once anymore. Posts and comments also cannot be disabled.
