You don't have to be friends with somebody on Facebook for their updates to appear in your News Feed. As a result, if you follow someone who isn't a friend, their public updates will appear in your feed as if they were Facebook friends.


Furthermore, if you enable others to follow you via Facebook, your public posts will appear in your followers' News Feeds, even if you aren't Facebook friends with them. It includes your images, posts, and comments you write on other people's public posts. And you might only be informed of it if you look for it.

  2. Select Block after clicking the More icon.

  3. Tap Block one more to confirm.


You can also modify your privacy settings so that only people you know can follow you.
