How to follow and unfollow a person on Facebook

Facebook provides a function called "Follow". We will see the "Follow" button with an "Add as Friend" option on that person's profile if the person has turned on this feature. When we follow someone, we will be able to see his/her post in our news feed. After following someone, we can unfollow them also. These are the following steps to follow someone on Facebook:

Desktop: To follow someone

1) Login into Facebook Account

Firstly, open the Facebook official website by pasting the https://www.facebook.com/ in the address bar of our preferred web browser. If we are already logged into Facebook, we will directly reach the News Feed page. But if we are not login, then we have to enter the username, phone number, and email address, followed by the password in the given tab.
