How To See Who I Am Following On Facebook

Facebook lets its users follow pages and friends on Facebook that represent people or businesses.

This lets users see their posts on their newsfeeds when they scroll through Facebook.

Most of whatever ends up on your Facebook newsfeed is because of what you follow on Facebook.

The list of pages that you Follow on Facebook is called your Following.

There’s a way to check all the pages that you follow on Facebook by accessing your Following list.

Let’s check how you can do that.

Open your Facebook using a browser.

Head over to your Timeline. You can do this by clicking your name displayed on the top right corner of your Facebook screen, beside the Menu and Notifications icon.

Once the page loads, you will see different tabs on your Facebook timeline. Click on Friends.

The Friends tab will show you additional tabs. Now click on Following.

You can now scroll down and see all the pages that you follow. 

This is your following list. You will notice that all your Facebook friends are here too. This is because Facebook automatically follows people you make friends with, enabling their posts to come up on your timeline.

If you want to make changes to your Following list, you can click on the page or person you want to make changes to, and unlike or unfollow them.

Using the search bar (or button on phone) search for the name of the friend and click on their profile.

Now click or tap on About (on the Facebook App, it should read See [name]’s About info).

Scroll down and click on Following.

You will now see a list of pages that your friend follows.

If you can’t see the option of Following from your friend’s profile, it may be because of their privacy settings.

From the Facebook privacy settings, a user can disable the option for their Following list to be viewed by friends or the public.

Is There A Limit On How Many Pages I Can Follow?

Yes. Facebook only lets you follow up to 5000 pages or people. 

This limit is there to help you have a better Facebook feed.

As the Facebook newsfeed consists of updates from your following, if you have too much of a following, stuff can get clustered and you may not end up at the stuff you enjoy more on Facebook.

How To See More From A Page?

If you follow a page, you can choose them as your favourite to make sure its posts always end up on your newsfeed.

You can also get notifications as soon as they upload a post.

To do this, search for the name of the page or friend you follow that you want to see more from.

Now tap on Following and then tap on Favorite.
