What do you do if you run into a friend’s Facebook post? Your hands instinctively reach for the thumbs-up button to express your love for them, right? You may also comment with an emoji in the comments section! You can make friends on Facebook, show them some love, and simply be yourself. But you can’t really do much about it when your friendships break occasionally, can you?
You probably already know that it happens frequently and have complained to your other pals about it as well. We naturally unfriend individuals on the platform.
But have you wondered whether people you unfriend on Facebook can still see the posts you commented on or liked? We’ll explore the nitty-gritty details of what happens in this blog. So, make sure to stick with us until the end.
If I Unfriend Someone on Facebook, Can They Still See the Post on Which I Commented or Liked?
Do you think about the repercussions before unfriending someone on Facebook? Of course, we have good reasons to trim our friends list, but that doesn’t mean we should stop thinking about the potential consequences.
Usually, we overthink when we unfriend some of our closest friends in the heat of the moment. To be clear, none of your Facebook friends receive a notice alert informing them that you have unfriended them. If that were the case, just picture the unrest and confusion that would ensue!
Users can hunt for hints to realize that you have unfriended them. In any case, to address your question, those you unfriend can still be able to view the post you left a comment on or liked. Now, in order to make things clearer for you, let’s explore the reasoning behind this.
You must know everything zeroes down to a person’s privacy settings. If you commented or liked a post that is public, they might see your activity on that particular post. Well, not only public posts, but your activities might also be visible if the post is shared with a mutual friend.
Just so you know, it’s crucial to check your settings to make sure you’re only sharing information with people you want.
