How to “Unlike” Multiple Pages on Facebook

I’ve been on an organizing spree lately and that has spread to Facebook. I have probably “liked” thousands of Facebook pages over the last few years. Many pages are for blogs that I love and want to keep around, but a movie or brand I liked 3 years ago that I really don’t care about now? Time to go.

Now I could click through to each page individually, scroll down, and “unlike.”
But talk about time consuming! No way!

I googled for a solution. But with Facebook’s recent changes, I couldn’t find a “how-to” that was accurate. I finally enlisted my husband’s help (he’s good with things like that) and he helped me figure it out.

You must have the new Facebook Timeline to follow these steps. But as Facebook is forcing everyone to change over by February 9th, you may as well do it if you haven’t already. Not sure how? Go to the Facebook Timeline page. I know, I know…but that’s a subject for another day.

Once you have your new timeline page, go to your personal page and click on the Likes section:

This will open up your Favorites. Click on the Edit button in the far right corner.

You’ll stay on the same page, it just changes to an “editing” format.
Scroll down until you see a break and then “Likes.” Click on the link for “Other Pages You Like”

A small box showing your page “likes” will pop up. From here you can “unlike” any pages you no longer want to follow.

If you accidentally “unlike” a page you do want to follow, just click the “Like…” link and you’ll follow them again.

As I went through my very long list, I had to close the box from time to time and re-open it to “refresh” things. You might need to try this too, although you might not have quite as many “likes” as I did!

So now that you’ve “cleaned out,” how about adding MusingsFromaSAHM if you haven’t already. Because how could you ever sweep our fabulous fanpage out the door, right? *wink*

    Wonderful tutorial. I really appreciate all of the pictures. I follow a lot of pages for giveaways so to be able to unlike in bulk would be awesome.

    I have a question . I tried to go to 2009 and unlike from there. I don’t see an unlike button. Is there a way to just get old years and unlike?

  15. I gotta start doing this – Thank YOu

  19. Erika, you totally rock! I am a blogger too, and currently have *gasp!* over 5000 likes. If you know anything about FB (as you obviously DO!) you know they cut you off after 5K. You must unlike someone to like anything else. This post totally made my whole day!

  20. Hi, with this method i still don’t see all my pages.
    I Have 655 pages … and i see maybe 100 at max so if someone can help me to show all the pages and unliked them it will be very cool :D

  21. Maybe when I get the new timeline this will work. I used to have an area where there was a like and unlike listed and then it was gone. I found a page on Facebook that is called unlike it and it helps you with a list. The best is the list on Facebook. I am going to try this and see if it comes back in a nice list. Thanks for the info!!!!

  22. Thank you so much :) :)

  25. Oh my goodness! Thank you SO MUCH. I was so tired of seeing the thousands of pages I liked now show up with random pictures and stupipd advertisement all over my facebook. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

  26. I did this and there are still 14 renegade “likes”. What gives? I check every day and there are a handful of pages that I’m not able to unlike, regardless of whether I’m unliking the source page, a duplicate, or the original. Any ideas Erika? Anyone? I feel like there’s something odd about not being able to unlike certain pages.

    It still takes quite a while once you’re maxed out though! :-)
