React to a post


Clicking Like below a post on Facebook is the easiest way to let people know that you enjoy it without leaving a comment. Just like a comment, the fact that you liked the post is visible below it.

For example, if you click Like below a friend's video:

  • People who can see the video will be able to see that you liked it
  • A story will be posted on your Timeline that you liked your friend's video
  • The person who posted the video will get a notification that you liked it


You can only unlike posts, photos, comments and Pages that you previously liked.

To unlike a post or photo:

  1. Go to the post or photo
  2. Click  Like to unlike

To unlike a comment:

  1. Go to the comment
  2. Click  Like to unlike

To unlike a Page:

  1. Go to the Page
  2. Hover over Liked
  3. Click  Like to unlike
