    How do you feel when you find out you've been unfriended by someone on Facebook?

    You're reading Facebook, scrolling along, when you see the "People You May Know" list.  As you look, you notice that someone you were friends with on FB now is on the list, with the box that says, "Add Friend."  Or, you are liking a mutual friend's post, and when you click to see who else likes it, one of your (now former) friends now has that "Add Friend" sign.  Do you feel slighted?  Have you ever written to them to ask why you were unfriended?

    Usually it's people who I haven't spoken to in a long time, so I don't take any offence (our mutual friends list is usually much lower than it was, too, meaning I was part of a clean-out and nothing personal).

    The first time I've ever felt upset about it was just a couple of weeks ago when a friend who I had spoken to quite recently and have spent a lot of time with over the past few years deleted me, and only me, out of all of our mutual friends.  I've thought about it a lot and can't think of why.  I'm not going to ask her about it, though.  It is what it is.  We do have a lot of mutual friends and I'm sure I'll run into her again someday - not sure how I'll handle that yet, but probably still won't bring it up.

      I had a once close friend unfriend me too.  I did try to ask her what I did, but she never responded.

    Doesn't really bother me. I usually shrug and say to myself "fine, screw you then." Haha

    It depends on who that friend is. I have friends or associates there that are always cleaning their friend list. They give a warning saying if someone does not respond to the post they will be unfriended. What is the point I say because it seems they still show up in the feed.

    I won't be bothered by it. Most so called 'friends' on Facebook are largely just friends from the past that you barely contact or are acquaintances. Someone may have deleted me because they are cleaning their friends lists or decided that Facebook is not exactly the safest platform to share every tiny personal information with people you hardly know.

    Anyway, my real friends are on my whatapp list.

    I've cut Facebook out of my life for reasons like this.

    There are so many reasons one may get unfriended. Most times it's done as an adult temper tantrum but there are many plausible reasons as well. And because I can't know exactly, I didn't give it much thought.  You don't want to be friends?  Okay, see ya!

    I never saying anything remotely offensive to anyone on facebook so when someone 'unfriends' me it comes as a bit of a surprise and I feel a bit shocked.  I do my best to figure out why; then I just think... oh, well that's your loss and I don't lose any sleep over it. Some people on facebook are constantly fishing for compliments but don't like it when you speak your mind or give your honest opinion on something and will 'unfriend' you just because of that. They often expect you to agree with them all them time or 'like' every single post they make.
