Massive Facebook unfriend trend going on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

People used to add everybody on Facebook, because it probably was nothing but a popularity contest...now here comes unfriending trend...people deleting eachother.

"Morley Winograd, director of the Institute of Communication Tech Management at the University of Southern California, believes much of the unfriending stems from users becoming more privacy-conscious as they grow older, according to a Complex blog."

Facebook users unfriended tops half a billion in 2011 | The Right Click - Yahoo! News Canada

HOLY FUCK BREAKING NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Never mind, it's just a filler story from a random blog. Not exactly worthy of 16 exclamation marks in the title... why not put it in all-caps too?

Everyone on my Facebook I've either met in real life or have talked to on the internet for years like many of you assholes. I don't get why people add randoms.

Unless they're hot.

i have 500 friends on Facebook.
I have seen/met everyone in real life on there. Most of them come from High School, Elementary School, UBC, Cadets, and more recently... RS

I do regular pruning of my list anyways... i tend to keep the hotties on there though

Why unfriend someone unless you have a huge falling out or they've personally offended you in some way?
Don't add them in the first place, or don't accept their friend request in the first place.
If you're old enough to use facebook, you're old enough to gauge whether you're adding someone worth adding in the first place.

For those people who get annoying posts on their news feed, instead of defriending them, why not just edit their priority?
Just click the little arrow to the right of their name and unsubscribe from their updates. That way you can still bet here friend and not have to read their updates.

I trimmed a bit recently. Just deleted a few people who I never talk to/or didn't ever in the first place (just randoms from HS and such) or people I don't want to talk to.

My friends list is about 160, and I was being quite generous with leaving some people on.
