How to Turn off Friend Suggestions on Facebook App & PC

Do you want to stop seeing friend suggestions on your Facebook App and PC?

This article will show you how to turn off friend suggestions.

First, we will go over some basic information about friend suggestions that Facebook uses on your feed:

Friend Suggestions: Friend suggestions appear on your news feed and can include people who aren’t friends with you or even in the same network. These are people that might be interesting for you to get to know.

Signal Boost: If someone chooses “Boost post” for one of their posts, likes a page, tags a photo, uploads multiple photos or makes several adjustments to an album at once, an alert appears prompting others to do the same.

The alert is sent only if many people have not already seen it. It disappears when enough people have acted on it.

Friend Suggestions are related to the “People you may know” feature, but they’re used for different purposes. People you may know is included in friend suggestions, but friend suggestions also include people that aren’t connected to you or your friends.

How does Facebook decide who should be suggested as a friend? When someone uses an external sign-up feature (like Google Connect), their information will not be automatically shared with everyone else on Facebook.

We provide them with the option to send invitations to specific people so they can choose whom to share their information with. This way, anyone using Facebook externally through Google or another provider decides how much of their personal information is shared and with whom.

For more information on how you can control who sees your information.
