How do I unfriend or remove a friend on Facebook?
To unfriend someone:
  1. Go to that person's profile by typing their name into the search bar at the top.
  2. Hover over Friends at the top of their profile.
  3. Select Unfriend.
Note: If you can't find the person you want to unfriend, their account may be deactivated.

To unfriend someone who has deactivated their Facebook account:
  1. Go to your profile by clicking your name in the top left of your News Feed.
  2. Click Friends.
  3. Search for the person’s name.
  4. Click Unfriend.

The person you unfriended won't be notified.
If you don't want someone to see your profile, add you as a friend or send you a message, you can block them.
Note: If you unfriend someone, you'll also be removed from that person's friends list. If you want to be friends with this person again, you'll need to add them as a friend again.
