Any situation that would warrant a comment like, “are we in high school?”

I’ve only defriended a couple of people. One was a guy who DH and I know pretty well, he’s come over to our house more times than I can count for dinner, parties, etc. He was invited to the wedding and RSVP’ed yes, although I did have to chase him down a bit for his RSVP. About a week before the wedding I noticed his FB status was asking who was going to some party on Saturday night and all I could think was “ummm I hope you’re not since you’re supposed to be coming to the wedding…”. He then put that he wasn’t feeling well, so I put a response something along the lines of “I hope you’re feeling better in time for the wedding on Saturday! Get your dancing shoes on! We’re looking forward to seeing you!” just in case he had forgotten or whatever. Guess who was a no-show? Inexcusable. I removed him from my friends list pretty quickly. If you don’t want to come fine, but don’t put on your stupid FB that you’re going to some other party! Jerk!

I delete people fairly regularly on facebook, but not because of things they do or say. If I feel we have drifted apart and I no longer have any connections to them other than a class 3 years ago they get the bump 🙂

i clean my list once every 2-3 months. just deleting them though – not blocking them. no point in blocking people for me though since i have a restricted page, so its not like you can see anything if you arent my friend anyway.

I hide folks who I still care about but bombard my newsfeeds with useless information or status updates. I periodically go into their profile to see what they are up to, view pictures, etc. At the same time, they are privy to my status updates and new photo postings.

I unfriend those I no longer want to be associated with. I don’t care to know what they are up to and would prefer that they are not updated with mine. When friends have turned into acquaintances, then have drifted apart altogether. Or when we no longer have anything in common. I’ve deleted ex co-workers that I have not kept in contact with and don’t care to get in touch with.

I hide people who complain about their lives in each status, people who brag about their weddings/being pregnant every single status, people who continually get facebook apps.  I rarely mention my wedding on my status.  I’ve blocked a few people that I don’t care for.  I don’t defriend that often, but after a few years of never talking to someone, there’s no reason to keep them as a friend.  I originally set up my facebook for networking, but honestly, that hasn’t really happened much.

I hide people who post incessant updates about the same thing (like one friend posted about 15 times in one day about a concert she was attending), people I don’t really care about that I just accepted their friend request to be nice, and people who play Farmville and Mafia Wars non-stop.

I had to block and unfriend a couple people during the last election.

I hide people if I want to keep up with, but they post a trajillion times a day about being pregnant, how awesome their husband/wife is, their cotton on Farmville or random stuff like that.

People get deleted if I’ve lost touch with them. If I haven’t talked to them or interacted with them in ages, they get the boot! They also get deleted if they’re extremely obnoxious!

@Chillmer: I had to delete a few friends during the last presidential election who became too liberal or too conservative and were spewing hateful, libelous stuff.

If there’s a bunch of annoying updates from someone that’s filling up my newsfeed, I’ll hide them.  If it’s someone who added me as a friend when we’ve met only once and haven’t ever communicated with again, there comes a time when I’ll delete them.

Or you can be like me, NEVER join FB. Although sometimes it’s more trouble than it’s worth because  my friends keep harrassing me asking why I haven’t joined FB and I keep telling them “If you want to get in touch with me, you will find a way” To be truthful though, I don’t hear about FB snafus from my friends, I just don’t want to keep in touch with folks 🙁

I’ve only defriended a couple people that post all the time and send out TONS of mass messages or mass invites to stuff.  I hate, hate, hate those.  It just clogs up my email.  I hide lots of people.  Mostly ones whose status updates start to annoy me.  I hide one of my best friends fiances and I would delete him if it would go unnoticed…but it wouldn’t.  He only talks angry political talk and it’s so annoying.  I don’t care what anyone elses political opinions are, especially not all day everyday on facebook.

An old high school friend of mine recently posted a picture of his wife’s VAGINA as they were cutting the cord. I mean it was a top view, but definitely recognizable. Where else would the slimy purple cord be coming from? Really… you really just posted a picture of that? What does your wife think about her most private parts being exposed to 600 of your closest friends?

DELETE. After I finish gagging.
