– In the next interface, you select “Least Interacted” to filter out people who have less interaction with you in your friends list (no likes, comments on each other’s posts, no messaging…). Or you can select “No mutual friends” to filter out people who have no mutual friends in the list.

Users can also choose “Friends you unfollowed” to list people you’re still friends with, but you unfollowed them on Facebook (their posts will no longer appear on your Facebook news feed).
