“Facebook has been trying to settle in on the best way to let you control the News Feed without being confusing. In 2012 it offered a ‘See Less’ option on friends’ profiles. But eventually Facebook found this was puzzling for users, since they’d still see that person in their feed, so it wasn’t clear if the option actually did anything. By 2014, Facebook had dropped ‘See Less’ in favor of a definitive ‘Unfollow’ button that let you stay friends but banish them from your feed.”
