How do you delete friends in facebook?
If you're a facebook addict like many people today, chances are you have a lot of friends. And statistically speaking, over 20% of the average facebook user's friends are people they've never met face to face.
So why is that? Well it can vary. That 20% might consist of people you've met through a friend, someone you've met online or someone you've added just to get ahead in a facebook application.
Whatever the reason, the origin of your facebook friends can vary widely - from school friends to colleagues, relatives and random acquaintance.
Sometimes, however, you no longer want a friend on your facebook friend list. Whether you had a falling out, or just no longer talk to them, you want them to no longer see your updates.
Read on to find out how to delete a friend on facebook.
Delete your Facebook Friends
- Visit the profile page of the friend you want to delete.
- Scroll down, watching the section of items below their profile picture on the left.
- Click the blue hyperlink that says 'Remove from friends.'
Is there any other way?

Basically, the only way to delete and permanently remove a friend from your list is to visit their profile page.
