How to unhide people and applications from your Facebook feed

This weekend I had a friend of mine who was using Facebook on a computer that wasn’t his. He thought that he was logged in to his account and hid some people from his feed and hid some applications that he considers annoying. A few seconds after doing this he realized that he wasn’t logged into his account. I got a message asking me to help him figure out how to unhide people and applications. After writing out the directions on how to do it I realized this was a cheap and easy blogpost… er… I mean valuable content that I should share. (Joking aside there was some conflicting information on how to do this, so I figured it made sense to post it.)

How to unhide people from your Facebook feed

1) From your start page make sure you have “live feed” selected.

2) Scroll to the bottom of the page. At the end of all your feeds select the “edit options” link.

3) On the right hand side there will be a box with the people you have selected to hide from your feed. Click the “x” next to their name to allow them to show up in your feed again.

You have now enabled that person to show up in your “live feed”. If you want them in your “news feed” you need to follow the next few steps.

4) From your start page make sure you have “news feed” selected.

5) Scroll to the bottom of the page. At the end of all your feeds select the “edit options” link.

6) In this box you will be able to add people to your news feed, applications, and fan pages that you had previously blocked.

Now you can right the wrongs that you have committed in fits of rage against your friends who talk about farmville way too much.

  1. Thanks Kevin- this is useful information.

    If you know of a way to hide *all* applications from my news feed I’d be interested in hearing about that. I find that new variations on similar themes (ie, “Which are you?”) are considered separate applications so I still feel like I’m playing Whack-a-Mole with applications.

    I’d consider using Facebook Lite, but I check Facebook status updates primarily through TweetDeck and consequently news that originates from applications I haven’t removed from my news feed keep coming through.

    Click “Close.”

  8. I have tried and tried this with ZooWorld, and it is NOT hidden, yet none of the posts from others show up. Mine show up on my profile page, but not anywhere else. I think I have a couple of open tickets with the devs, but they don’t help at all.
