There are thousands of groups that you can join or just like in FaceBook. It can be fun to click the "Like" button so that it adds those things to your profile. The problem is, you can end up with hundreds of groups of things that you liked at one time or another. Those things don't always apply in your life though. If you want people to know the things that you really like, you may want to delete some of those groups from your FaceBook page. It can be a tedious task, but if you want to clear the way for more likes or just to clean up your page, you can do it very easily.

How to delete "Likes" on your FaceBook page:

Step 1- Log into your FaceBook account and go to your profile page.

Step 2- Scroll down the page and look on the left hand side for the "Likes" box.

Step 3- It will tell you how many "likes" you have and there will be three examples underneath the heading.

Step 4- If you see a "like" there that you would like to see disappear, click on it.

Step 5- Scroll to the bottom of the page. On the left hand column, you will see an "Unlike" button. Click that button.

Step 6- Scroll back to the top of the page and click on the "Profile" button at the top of the page. This will take you to your profile so that you can "unlike" more if you wish.

Step 7- If you want to bring up more "likes", you can do so by clicking the number of likes over top of the three examples that are showing. This will bring up a list. You will still have to delete the "likes" one by one, but this will give you a better range of "likes" to work from. Scroll down the list. If you want to delete it, click on the link and "unlike" it.

FaceBook is a great place to do your social networking. The "like" button can be a lot of fun until you realize that everything you like stays with your profile forever unless you delete it. Be careful of what "like" buttons you are choosing. It does show up in your page one way or the other. Clean out your "likes" and move forward with a fresh start. When other people look at your likes, they assume you really do like it. After all, you chose to click the "like" button on it. Remember that your future employers may be looking at your FaceBook page to determine what type of employer you will be for their company. In fact, potential relationships could rely on everything you do in FaceBook. Be choosy, it counts.
