10 Ways to Get Unfriended on Facebook

10 Ways to Get Unfriended on Facebook

November 09, 2010

Ever since Jimmy Kimmel declared November 17th “National Unfriend Day,” we’ve been taking a closer look at our 400+ Facebook friends.

The man has a point.

Facebook makes it too easy to hold onto irrelevant, obsolete or even irritating attachments.

Do you really need to be in touch with people you barely knew (or liked) in high school? If you didn’t know how many virtual goats they’d raised or what their kids had for lunch, would you be missing anything?

And somewhere out there, someone might be thinking the exact same thing about you! If you want a chance at surviving the November 17th culling, you might want to steer clear of some annoying behaviors.

Here are five surefire ways to get unfriended on Facebook.

1) Exposing your friend’s vices

Your friend might smoke openly outside Molly McGees on a Friday night, but that doesn’t mean they want their mother, spouse, or even their employer to know about it. Comments like “I can’t believe you managed to get home after that last whiskey sour!” or “Sorry for bumming your smokes all night,” could put your friend in an awkward position at home or get them in trouble at work. If so, they’ll put you in the unfriend list.

2) Oversharing

People tend to forget that their friend list is as dynamic as the life they lead. Keep that in mind when you’re about to share something you wouldn’t tell your cousin or coworker in a face-to-face setting. Very few people want to see pictures from your ultrasound. And I can’t think of anyone who wants to hear about your sexcapades.
