What reasons can you think of for unfriending somebody on Facebook?
If someone unfriends you on Facebook, does it always mean he or she does not like you?
It most likely means that person is angry with you. They accepted you as their friend, then they unfriended you? Something happened to change their mind.
It can be any number of things. For example, it could be that you post too much to the types of things that you post.
That's hard to say...perhaps you were posting too much and they needed to scale down some of the offenders.
It depends if this person were a close and personal friend or a stranger who friended you.
a stranger is easy to delete but someone who knows me would have to have done some egregious things over a course of time for me to unfriend.
Politics and Religion. It's one thing to hear different points of view on HubPages where we can discuss our views with a modicum of civility. It's a whole other thing to get spammed day in and day out by a "friend" who just assumes everyone in their universe agrees with every thought that drops out of their head like a gumball rolling out of a dime machine. I don't unfriend these folks. I hide them. They can see my posts if they are interested, but I don't have to suffer theirs.
I don't usually unfriend people unless they're particularly spammy (like ten posts per day about random, boring stuff), or if they post about personal drama on a regular basis.
But I know lots of people who do regular "clean outs" where they delete anyone that they don't talk to at least somewhat regularly. So in that case not so much of a "I don't like you" gesture as it is just growing apart and not wanting people they're not close with to see everything going on in their lives.
Sometimes it can mean that you two do not engage with each other anymore. It's not that they do not like you all the time, sometimes it's just distance and lack of communication.
Main reason is them damn friend invites to play those stupid games.
yes definitely, prejudice and jealousy for sure. I unlike them too
No, it doesn't. There are some people I can be perfectly good friends with in "real life" but I don't want or need them on my Facebook feed. In fact, remaining Facebook "friends" with them can have a detrimental impact on our real friendship offline. As examples, if they constantly post political or social issues items that we fundamentally disagree with and I don't want to have those kinds of arguments with that person. If they post nothing but baby and kids photos and I have no interest in following the exploits of their children whom I don't even know. Or maybe a person was just a casual acquaintance (a friend of a friend, a co worker at one time, someone from high school I haven't seen in years) and after a while I realize we simply have no connection, they never comment on anything I share, our interests our far too different. Then I might unfriend not because I "dislike" them but it's clear we don't really connect on any level.
i think that they don't like what you post on your wall on facebook or how to think
but that does't mean neccesry they do not like you
I wouldn't give it much thought unless they were my family or "real friends".
Facebook friends are often people you have no (real interaction)
Various scenarios for unfriending someone
I can easily see unfriending someone who is an ex or friends of an ex whom you feel has no business knowing what you are up to socially anymore. I can also see doing it if the person is constantly filling up your wall with countless postings you have no interest in seeing or reading about. Some people overshare!
They posted something you find inappropriate on your profile page.
Maybe some of "their friends" have been trolling Facebook and they reach out to you. Some people use social media sites like online dating sites.
I'm not a huge Facebook user and wouldn't loose any sleep if someone unfriended me. Odds are we're not "real friends" anyway.
i have unfriended two people who repeatedly posted young scantily clad women in suggestive poses. i don't need some old guys' excitement material on my page. i also unfriended someone who repeatedly posted negative things about homosexuals. i'm straight, but any kind of hate doesn't fly with me.
I recently unfriended someone that was related to my fiance. She was posting personal issues(like breastfeeding) constantly, every day, several times a day. I had told her i didn't care for that stuff, could she knock it off. It's not that I'm against it at all, but when you post it all over your page you are begging people to see your junk.I don't think those issues are to be discussed with every tom, dick , or harriet. I don't need that. She wouldn't respect my request to keep her posts tasteful, so I unfriended her. I felt that I had a right to choose what I saw on my computer screen, she didn't appreciate it though. But I have to be around her and my fiance's side of the family, and to keep the peace I had to get her off my screen. Hopefully, someday she will understand.

How do you handle unfriending someone on Facebook?Assume the person did nothing wrong, but you suspect they are stalking you for someone else. Would you unfriend or just leave it be? Would you talk with them first?
