How to Disable the Facebook Friend Finder Suggestion

I have been REALLY annoyed by Facebook when it keeps suggesting me the strangers that I do not know on daily basis, including Facebook site and especially on my mobile phone. I am really getting pissed off and about to uninstall Facebook if I can’t find a solution to this. Lots of people saying there is no way of doing it as it is built in by Facebook and there is no settings to control it.

Step 1:

Navigate to your Facebook page and find the “PEOPLE YOU MAY KNOW” section, click on “See All” link:

Currently I am still waiting for confirmation regarding this action, 30 minutes passed and my contacts still in my list.

Let’s see what happens tomorrow.
