5 reasons why you should unfriend someone on Facebook

  • Conflicting Political and Religious Views: oftentimes, it is hard knowing someone doesn’t share your religious or political beliefs. It gets even harder when you constantly have to view their religious/political Facebook updates. It’s best to just unfriend them, to have peace of mind.
  • When they are totally self-absorbed: some of your close friends might be bragging on social media. A tiny bit can be cool. But when it becomes a daily occurrence, then it’s time to let that friend go.
  • When they are a terrible friend: this is a very good reason to unfriend someone on Facebook. It is not healthy being in a toxic friendship, besides no one needs a friend that puts them down.
  • If they are a gossipy relative: this is another great reason to unfriend someone on Facebook. Imagine having that relative relaying all your actions back to your parents. It’s as if you’re being stalked. The best course of action is to remove them from your friend’s list.
  • Inappropriate updates: sometimes you scroll through your news feed and find inappropriate posts (comments, pictures). You just wonder what goes through people’s minds. If this becomes frequent, it’s best to just unfriend the person.
