Top Reasons of Unfriending on Facebook

Samyak Lalit | July 8, 2013 (Last update: February 7, 2015)

Samyak Lalit is an Indian author and disability rights activist. He is the principal author and founder of projects like TechWelkin, WeCapable, Viklangta, Kavita Kosh among many others.

A survey by a UK website has revealed some of the top reasons as to why Facebook users unfriend someone. The survey was conducted on a total of 820 participants. The respondents were asked to disclose main reasons for unfriending, blocking or deleting a Facebook friend.

The survey revealed that big mouths face greatest risk of getting unfriend. Close to 68% respondents said that they will unfriend anyone who brags or boasts too much on Facebook. 61% survey takers said that they unfriend those who post a lot about their romantic affairs.

Other common reasons for unfriending include too many updates, “annoying” posts and “inappropriate photos”, while more than a quarter of users said they found a friend’s status posts “too personal”, British newspaper, The Telegraph, reported.

Over 50% respondents said that they unfriended someone because they did not meet the person in real world. Bad mouthing is also a big reason for unfriending.

Reasons of unfriending actually go beyond these rather understandable ones. 11% respondents said that when they feel jealous about their friend enjoying their holidays –they will consider unfriending. 15% people revealed that they  had deleted a friend when that contact started adding friends from their contact list without actually knowing the people.

I am sure excessive tagging will also be a reason causing some level of unfriending. I am in the favor of simplifying Facebook life. A smaller number of close friends can interact and share things much better than a large number of unknown “friends”.

I hope it was useful for you. Please feel free to ask if you have any questions on this topic. I will be happy to try and help. Thank you for using TechWelkin!
