2. Click on the Friends tab. You will be presented with the list of all your friends on Facebook.

4. It will take you the person's profile.
5. Right click on the Friends on the profile.
6. You will find the Unfriend option as the last item on the drop down list.
7. Click on it.
Done! You have successfully unfriended the person. Please note that the person will not get a notification that you have removed him/her from your friend list. But you will also be removed from their friends list. Thus, they may get to know that you have unfriended them. Though Facebook does not let the members know that they have been unfriended, one can easily find it out as the friends list is mutual and that's what gives away the fact that you have been unfriended.

Login into your Facebook account, search for the person you want to unfriend, open their profile, you can find "Friends",select it, you can find "Unfriend", click on it. The person wouldn't know until she/he tries to check your profile.

If you don't want to delete the person from your account but doesn't want to see their posts, you can stop watching their posts by selecting "unfollow". If you want the person not to add you again forever then select "block". They can never add you as a friend.

Just put cursor over the name of the person you want to unfriend. Do not click on it. It shows 'Friends', 'Following' and 'Message' as three tabs. You can keep cursor on Friends and click on 'Unfriend' option and you are done. Now you can search for this friend whom you just unfriend, Add friend option will be available to his profile page. This means, you are now no longer friend to him or her but you can become by clicking on add friend button.
