Once in a while, I'm unpleasantly surprised to find that I've been unfriended on Facebook. If the person is someone I've met once and will likely never see again, I don't mind. Sometimes, though, I get unfriended by people I know well -- people I will probably see again,
A recent poll by social media analytics company NM Incite suggests that 14% of Facebook users who unfriend someone do so because they've been offended by political comments that were posted on the site. What does this say about free speech?
Last week my procrastination led me to conduct a classmate search on Facebook in which I noticed that a girl who had been my friend now had an "add as a friend" rectangle next to her face. "Add as a friend?"
I recently had a friend, with whom I've had an increasingly difficult relationship over the years, "unfriend" me. The "friending" and "unfriending" of people happens probably thousands of times a minute.
