Unfriending Facebook Friends 2010-10-25 15:45:10

Which Action Is Most Likely to Cause You to Unfriend Someone on Facebook?

New research from the University of Colorado suggests that the two most common reasons for Facebook unfriending are: one, posting too often. And, two: posting about particularly polarizing topics like religion and politics.

Most of you agree that aggressive political posting could be grounds for removal, and often too many posts about your kids can have the same effect. As one of my friends oh-so-brilliantly put it, "If I wanted to see photos of your baby, I'd friend your baby."

Children I can handle, but angry political commentary pushes me over the edge. And once I unfriended an acquaintance who posted only whiny, negative comments about her day to day activities. Which action makes you most likely to unfriend someone on Facebook?
