Facebook is the most popular social network site up to date. It is a place where you can connect to old friends and make new friends online.

Sometimes, for some reasons, you might not want to “friend” with your facebook friends anymore. Here you will learn TWO ways to unfriend your Facebook friends.

Method 1: Sidebar link

  1. Visit the facebook profile page of the person you want to unfriend (example: http://www.facebook.com/theirname).
  2. Scroll down to the bottom of left sidebar and you should see a couple text links like the screenshot below:

  3. Click on the “Unfriend” link.
  4. A popup will appear to ask you for confirmation. Click “Remove from Friends” button to confirm.

  5. Done. He/She is now your Facebook ex-friend.

Method 2: Friends list

If you want to unfriend many facebook friends, it is faster to do it in Facebook Friends list.

  1. Goto Facebook “edit friends
  2. Click on the button under “Friends” title to change it to “All Friends”.
  3. Now you get a list of all your Facebook friends sorted in alphabet order. Click on the “X” button at the right end of each row to unfriend.

My two cents

As you see, it is very easy to unfriend facebook friends. Surprisingly, many of my friends do not know to unfriend. Hope this tip will help them.

Maybe you think it is unharmed to friend with random people on Facebook… but you might not know how much information you are sharing to the strangers once you friend them. Check out Facebook privacy guide to set your privacy level.
