You should be able to hit it again. It should say UNLIKE if you already hit like. Then hit it and it will be like you didn’t hit like.

That’s...like...not helpful. :^)

I should clarify. I have hit the “like” button hundreds of times. In order to avoid the time-consuming task of having to unlike each and every “like”, I would like to use an option (if there is one) which will enable me to unlike ALL of my “like” choices with just one click.

Thank you.

I don’t think it’s possible to do a global “unlike” on FB. Though you might try going to G**gle and typing in “how to unlike all likes on Facebook” or something along those lines. I’m always astounded at how many people have taken the time to post every single thing they ever thought about on the Internet. Maybe you’ll hit gold.

Perhaps you could find a search engine you like a bit better, and try the same technique. Or have another beer and see if anyone answers you here. Your call.

I’m guessing you want to undo all your likes so the government can’t track your habits.

Well, it’s too late. The NSA already knows about your midget clown porn videos.

Of course... well, it’s mostly amateur porn. You know the stuff that 250 lb. middle aged people film thinking its da sexy. Serves the NSA right. Hopefully they’ll all go blind watching it.

Yet you posted numerous “likes” on the biggest market research tool on the planet?

Face it, Facebook now has a pretty good idea on your personal tastes. Which they SELL to ANYBODY. And it didn’t even cost them one red cent because you volunteered the info.

Not busting your chops, but I never understood why people do that.

Good luck though.

______________________________________________________
I am not sure what you mean, but for search engines, I use only Startpage.com, “the world’s only private search engine.”

As for Facebook, it is the daily activity for my wife and all of her friends. The girls LOVE FB. While I did open a Facebook account some years ago, I rarely use it. I opened it only for old friends that might be looking for me.

I wouldn’t worry about. Although I haven’t read that particular book, I never base my reading choices on others opinions. Odd how you really liked this book and then suddenly a change in opinion.

Facebook does not want you to do it. So it is a MANUAL process.

Grease monkey has some scripts that you can install to do it.
But Facebook revises their code so they stop working as soon as they find them.

But you could revise that starting code.

But otherwise, it is a slow tedious process.

-— and even then, Facebook still has them. Some users have complained about deleted stuff ‘reappearing’

From the home page, click on “Edit Profile” (upper-left corner, just under your name).

Click on the button that says “Activity Log”.

Click on the word “Likes” (left-hand column).

This will show you every time you “Liked” something. You can then go to each item and unlike it.

I don’t know if there is an easier way.

You’re welcome.

Wait ... you don’t like to use unsecured search engines but you use Facebook and have clicked “like” hundreds of times?

Interesting.

Get the TOR browser, then browse whatever you wish. Given the government’s proclivities these days everyone should be using it.

I did give a helpful suggestion. :-)

I have no idea on how to mass remove Facebook likes, it’s sure not directly available from Facebook. Others have pointed out some possibilities. I largely avoid Facebook myself.

Good evening. Would anyone know how to delete ALL "like" choices I've posted on Facebook? Your assistance is deeply appreciate.

You could manually track each one down and "unlike".

Then contact the NSA, FBI, CIA and simply request them to "forget that I liked that"...

I had and still do to some extent, have problems navigating FaceBook. Funny thing...I went in to the language settings and lo and behold, there’s an option for pirate’s English. I kid you not, I was able to understand their directions better in that form than in English. :-) What a hoot!

You publish a post with the content “Jim Thompson is a commie and voted for Obama”. That may have some, undesirable, secondary effects, though.

It appears you don’t understand how data mining works.

Chocolate chip cookies - Nabisco, cookie manufacturers, cooking supplies stores may be interested in you.

Paintings - art supplies, museums (yes, for fundraising), art dealers may be interested in you

Hair cuts - BoRicks, Bubbles,Vidal Sassoon, Miss Clairol may be interested in you.

Now multiply that’s by hundreds of millions of other Facebook users and. You’ve got quite a lot of valuable data that businesses can profit from.

And that’s just from 3 examples you pulled out of your a$$.

As a corporation, I request searches of users with “likes” relevant to my business and Facebook has the capacity to churn it out. All for a fee, of course.

At least the survey takers at the mall would pay you 5 buxs for you answers. You give this stuff up for free, every day.

Hey, you forgot to mention “proctology”. After all, I am apparently pulling examples out of my....well, you know.

I understand my data mining game, which is why I don’t specific “like” products, businesses, ppl adds on FB. So they look at my Aunt FeeFee’s recipe and see that I like it. So what. There is a difference.

Heck, if you wish you may as well include ANY shopping on the internet or at the grocery store (unless you don’t use one of those bogus “store cards”, and only pay in cash).
