How to unfollow someone on Facebook

Have you had enough already? Thankfully, unfollowing someone on Facebook is just as easy as following them in the first place.

To unfollow, just hover your mouse over the Follow button and select Unfollow [their name].

When you are following someone a message option will come up on their profile and there will be an icon of a person with a check mark.

Keep Your Distance, Particularly While Driving

In the movies, you might see the hero of the story

In the movies, you might see the hero of the story discover that he’s being followed by glancing in his rear-view mirror and seeing a black cadillac being driven by a guy in dark sunglasses. This is rarely the case. Unless the person you’re following is committing some crime while behind the wheel, you probably don’t have to be directly behind them. Just following closely enough to know where they’re headed is sufficient. Of course, if your target makes four left or right turns in a row, the jig is probably up.

This strategy extends to any location. If your target pulls into a car park, don’t follow them through every aisle. Park in a place where you have a good view of the entry to the store, without being obviously noticeable from a distance. If you need to watch someone’s home, don’t park across the street. Make copious use of that zoom lens and park far away. Most people don’t have the instinct (or the eyesight) to keep a close eye on anything very far away from them.

Keep it short and use simple language

No one likes to receive a long or dense email. The most effective messages are short and easily scannable. Research shows that between 75 and 100 words is ideal, yielding the highest response rate at 51%. This means that if you’re forwarding your initial email, your follow-up message should be even shorter.

The same research also shows that using simple language (at a third-grade reading level) results in the highest response rate (53%). Longer, more complex emails are often put to the side and revisited later when the reader has time to focus on your message. This means that longer emails are more likely to be forgotten.

Try keeping it simple and straightforward. For instance, you could say something like, “I’m following up to see if you might have some time to talk in the next week or two about your experience working at Company X, as I just applied for the financial analyst position.”

Give them an out

One reason someone might not reply to an email is that they aren’t able to help, or don’t feel comfortable following through on your request. Giving your email recipient an out will ease their discomfort and demonstrate humility, making the other person more likely to reply.

Try using one of the following phrases:

  • “If you don’t know William well enough to make the introduction, I completely understand.”
  • “If you’ve gone in another direction in hiring for this position, please let me know.”
  • “If there’s someone else I should reach out to for this information instead, please let me know.”
  • “Please let us know if you’re too busy to provide feedback on my project or need more time.”
  • “If you’re unable to participate in our panel, we welcome suggestions of other Women in AI that you’d recommend.”

You can also give the recipient a chance to save face by acknowledging that you know they’re busy and have a lot on their plate. The last thing you want is for them to associate negative emotions with receiving emails from you. In this case, a simple statement like, “If you’re too busy or it’s not a good time right now, no problem,” works well.
