When you follow someone, you can see that person updates on your News Feed.
If you are not happy with their updates and in the meantime, you do not want to unfriend them, then you can unfollow them.
Unfollow allows you to stay friends on Facebook. At the same time, it stops their updates from appearing on your News Feed permanently.
You can unfollow anyone you want at any time. Also, note that your friends will not get notified when you unfollowed them.
