Why Some "Friends" in Facebook Don't Like You

BEFORE you post that umpteenth status update about your toddler’s latest witticism or your feelings for Glenn Beck, consider this.

According to research by a graduate student at the Business School at the University of Colorado Denver, the top two reasons that Facebook users unfriend people is that they post too frequently on trivial topics or about polarizing subjects—particularly politics and religion.

“One of the interesting things about unfriending is that most real-world friendships either blow up or fade away,” said Christopher Sibona, who wrote the study with his adviser, Steven Walczak, an associate professor of information systems management.

“But on Facebook, users actively make the decision to unfriend, and people often don’t know why or what’s happened in the relationship.”

Not everyone, it seems, really wants to be friends with everyone. - PDI and AFP
