Today, November 17th is the International Facebook Unfriend Day
National Unfriend Day is the international day when all Facebook users can protect the sacred nature of friendship by cutting out the 'friend fat' on their pages occupied by people who are not necessary friends. And true, the social psychological relations this may help alleviate is uncalculatedable.
The movement seems to have struck a chord. A Facebook page dubbed "National Unfriend Day Nov 17" has garnered almost 5,000 "likes".
Unfriending a friend
Contrary to what some people may think, when you unfriend someone on Facebook, that person won't know you committed such a deed. If you unfriend someone on Facebook, the person does not receive a notification, but they can no longer look at your profile and they can’t request to get connected again.
