How to Delete Favorites in the Facebook App for iPhone

Written by shawn farner | 13/05/2017

The Facebook app for the iOS family of devices, the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, allows you to create "shortcuts" or "favorites" that are placed on the home screen of the app. Favourites give you one-tap access to the profiles of close friends and family members, or let you quickly view a Facebook Page or Group. If you want to delete a favourite from the Facebook app's home screen, you can do so in a few steps.

Open the Facebook app on your iPhone.

Tap the "Facebook" logo to get to the app's home screen.

Press a finger down on the favourite that you want to delete. Hold it down for approximately three seconds, until the favourite starts to wiggle.

Tap the X in the corner of the favourite's thumbnail icon to delete that favourite from your Facebook home screen.

Press the Home button to stop the rest of your favourites from wiggling.
