Me again. Sorry, Jim, there's a much easier way now. Facebook actually got
it right.

1. Bring up the person's Facebook profile.
2. Again, use the Control f function to bring up the Jaws Find Dialog.
3. Search for the word following
4. You should hit a "following" button if you're friends with that person.
Pressing space bar on that button should change it from "following" to
"follow".

That seems to do it. They don't seem to offer you choices of all, most, or
only important updates, but that following button seems to say you get the
items in your newsfeed or you don't. Give it a shot.

Hi there,



I'm trying to see if I can hide someone from my newsfeed on Facebook
without completely unfriending them. Is this possible, and if so,
how? I am trying to use JAWS and Internet Explorer.

Thanks.

Jim
