The stories on Facebook and other social networks is a feature loved by many followers as well as hated by some people at the same time. So, if you are one of the latter group, you may as well dislike some stories you might have created on your home page. We are going to show you how to get it easily and quickly done.
The truth is that Facebook Stories seems to have come to stay, so one of the few options that exist to get the stories go unnoticed is by hiding them. However, sadly, this is not possible to get it done by default via the official applications that Facebook offers, so you have to resort to a third-party app to materialize your wish.
