Why is Facebook putting these updates in my news feed?

Asked by Aethelflaed (13752points) June 27th, 2012

A few days ago, Facebook started giving me the updates of pages my friends have liked. Not, that they liked the page, the actual page’s update. See here.

Interestingly, these are friends whom I am not subscribed to, and are on my restricted list. Why do I keep getting the updates of Teen Mom Fansite and 9 News just because I have a friend who, at one point, liked them? And how can I make it stop?

Nope, that’s not it.

I know what you’re talking about. You should have some options in the dropdown box next to the person’s name. I’m not exactly sure, but try choosing either…“only important” or “unsubscribe from comments and like activities.” I cannot give you answer to your other question because I don’t know. You shouldn’t be getting these types of updates from someone you’re not subscribed to. If that doesn’t work, you may just have to delete that person.

EDIT: Go to the person’s profile. Under the box that saysFriends option at the top right of their wall, you should see a dropdown menu. Click settings. Click comments and likes. I’m not sure if this will help either, but I just saw this so thought I’d let you know.

On one of those posts, click on the X on the top right of that post. It will give you a drop down menu, which will be pretty self explanatory. Click on the line that says something like “Block Channel 5 News”.

If you stop using Facebook, it will all go away. No. I lie. You also have to take Facebook notifications and filter them directly to trash. Then it will all go away.

Unless they change the source of the notifications, and then you will have to set up a new filter, and it will all go away.
