How to Reconnect with People You Unfollowed on Facebook

  • Open the Facebook app and tap the Menu icon that looks like three horizontal lines, located at the bottom right of the screen.

  • Scroll down and select Settings.

  • Choose News Feed Preferences.

  • Tap Reconnect with people you unfollowed.

  • A list of the people you’ve unfollowed will appear. Tap the people you want to start following on Facebook once again.

  • Tap Done.

People you start following again on Facebook won’t know you’ve started following them again in the same way that they weren’t notified when you stopped following them before.
