Sometimes Facebook adds new features and it's almost hair-pulling frustrating to get rid of them, and sometimes Facebook adds new ways to get rid of old features without ever telling you. Here's a few tips to de-clutter your Facebook profile.

Remove Sidebar Chat

  • Click the "cog" in the lower right-hand corner.
  • Select Hide Sidebar.
  • The Chat menu will return to its original tab.










  • If at any time you want to bring the sidebar back, click the button.









    Remove Post Activity From Your Facebook Wall

  • Scroll down your wall until you find your Recent Activity.
  • Click x on any Recent Activity that is of you commenting on someone else's wall post.
  • Click Hide all Wall post activity
