    Tensions mounted when a local woman began to 'unfriend' FB friends with whom she did not regularly communicate.

    If you were unfriended, how are you coping !

    This is too funny, mainly because it reminds me of something that happen to me on Facebook. I know someone on the popular Social Media Website, who was carrying on and on about someone unfriending them out there. They were stating that they couldn't figure out why this happened, how this person could unfriend them. My feeling was, this is facebook, not real life, its different making friends on Social Media then in real life. On Social Media its really no big deal when someone unfriends or unfollows you at least its not for me. I mean this is online interaction, not someone I know personally, but I do find it funny though that some people do take this association very seriously.

    She should have just done it without making an announcement. The people she unfriended would probably have been none the wiser.

    I have about two hundred "friends" on Facebook but we never talk. We belong to a gambling site (not real money) and the more friends we have, the more daily bonuses we get!

    I only have friends that are either people that I have known for years (some that I went to school with), my family, and a few friends from the internet forums.
    Some of them post stuff like how many points they got in such-and-such a game, or what they had for breakfast or dinner. Sometimes, they post this constantly, and even add the recipe. Or share recipes, and stuff like making soap bubbles for your kids to blow bubbles with.
    I hate looking at all of this stuff, and it clogs up my FB page; so I keep them as friends; but "unfollow" them so I don't get every single post they write.
    People that don't clutter up my FB; I leave as following, and that way, I can read the stuff I am interested in, and the rest of them; I go to their page and read it whenever I want to.
    It works well for me.

    @Yvonne Smith - It's possible to block all posts about games. I did that soon after I joined Facebook because I really didn't want to know silly information about what games some of my much younger cousins were playing but still wanted to know what was going on in their lives. Like you I've always been selective with my Facebook friends and it sometimes surprises me that I've managed to collect a 'massive' 34 friends. Even among those there are a couple of 'friends' that I met in online forums I no longer participate in, and I sometimes think that I should unfriend those, but they so rarely show up on my page that it isn't worth the bother.

    I don't do face now but once upon a time I was a member but it's been years. There was just too many likes. Too many. It got so I didn't like anybody, I wanted to quit Facebook and be a bad for a while. I applaud this gal for the action she took. She'd been better off to just do it and keep everything under her hat or hair.
