So, Facebook is constantly updating it's interface, so as of 2013 the system has changed. Follow the instructions below.
- Click / tap the little wheel icon in top right...
- Choose Privacy Settings
- In "Who Can see my stuff" choose "use activity log"..
- Review what you've liked, and if necessary, unlike the posting.
The original article, for reference is below:
You need to go to
Edit Profile [here's the first mistake, I don't want to edit anything, I want to view]
Activities and Interests

and you'll be presented with a tincy wee pop-up box with a massive scrolling list that you can't sort or can't search or can't filter.
What you'll also notice here in that entire chain of action, there is no mention of the word 'like'. I.e. the very action you took to create this list. How is the busy user meant to even begin to connect the two halves: creating their 'likes' and maintaining their 'likes'?
Really, I've rarely seen anything so ridiculous in a user interface - but of course, Facebook is the master of the unintelligible interface! And to make matters worse, it can't even stop meddling.
Seriously, Facebook, if you're hiring I'll come and sort it for you. You know what, I might even do it for free. We'll start with a few simple use cases and a little understanding of some users tasks, and we'll actually build the interface around what users actually want to do. Voila!
