How do I change posts from friends to "only important"

share|improve this question

2 ways to select "Only Important" messages from your friends to appear in your newsfeed:

    • Visit your friend's profile page
    • Hover over the "Friends" button under the cover photo
    • Under "Show in News Feed" select "Settings"
    • Select "Only Important
    • On the friend's post in your Newsfeed, click on the arrow in the top right of the post
    • Click "Hide"
    • The now-hidden news story will show a menu; select "Change what updates you get from "
    • Select "Only Important"
    • You can also change what types of stories you get from this friend
