A while ago I removed one of my friend's posts from my Facebook news feed. I'd like to add them back to the feed, but can't find any way of doing this. I suppose I could un-friend & re-friend them but that seems like overkill and is likely to wipe all of our wall-to-wall info.

Home => News Feed (Most Recent) => Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Edit Options => Under the Hide remove the blocked friend

Nowadays (2018), there are two options to stop seeing posts from someone, and they can be canceled from the same location: unfollow and snooze.

Remove friend's posts

  • Unfollow

    Unfollow Bob
    Stop seeing posts but stay friends

  • Snooze

    Snooze Bob for 30 days
    Temporarily stop seeing posts

Those can be chosen from the three dots menu enter image description here at the top left (or right, if using an RTL language) of each post:

  • Note that both actions can be undo immediately after applied, from the news feed, at the exact location it was done (assuming you stayed there).

Bring back this friend's posts

  1. Open your friend's profile
  2. On the cover photo, there are three buttons, the middle one is for following settings.

    • The default:

    • See first:

    • If you unfollowed and want to re-follow:

      enter image description here

    • If you snoozed and want to end it:

If you blocked a friend, which is something else (although you also won't see their posts), you can unblock them from the Blocking tab on Facebook settings

A little while after you first unfollow someone, Facebook will show you this on your feed, to let you understand better what it means:
