 So have you ever removed a friend from facebook? Was their a backlash afterwards if you did? I hardly ever use facebook, I only use it to get someones cell number or to find out their e-mail. It seems people have thousands of "friends" and even if they don't like the person at all they will leave them on their list. When me and my girlfriend broke up I removed her from my facebook page because I hated her guts and I really didn't want to see her updates every time I went on. She messaged me and said I was a prick for removing her as a friend... I didn't reply and we haven't talked for over a year :D. I've removed lots of people and something similar happens with them private messaging me.

Lol it's funny that you ask, because me and my brother started the "Under 100 club" for Facebook friends.  Meaning we don't know over 100 people well enough to actually call them good friends, so instead of having like 345 aqcuaintances, we mercilessly cut down our friends list!  Bwahaha!!  So yeah, I've cut Facebook friends like Jason on a good weekend.

I've removed "friends" because they weren't actually friends. However I have had somebody friend me, unfriend me, friend me again, unfriend me yet again and then try to friend me again.

I have deleted people who werent my friend, merely online acquaintances I havent talked to in a long while. Though I have deleted my Facebook/Myspace etc.

Though in reference to the girl calling you a prick for deleting her on facebook, shes a fool. Why wouldent you removed her as a friend if you break up? If you arent friends with them (though it is perfectly possible to stay friends with past partners) then you shouldent have them as friends on social networking, if she thinks your a prick for doing it then she has odd priorities and you shouldent care.

This. People from school that I disliked tried too add me, I just ignored them. I have about 40 friends but they are actual friends I care about. Except for this one guy from Peru, I don't know why he is on my friends list...

I probably will do this eventually.  I've accidentally allowed too many people in my friend's list who I hardly see anymore, usually because they cannot be bothered to keep in contact with me.  Won't be nice, but it has to happen eventually.  Same goes for my live messenger contacts and steam "friends".

Never deleted anyone no, if someone I meet adds me I'll accept but I dont go out of my way to add randomers that like the same brand of ice cream as me. I have around 190 friends of which I have removed ~30 from my news feed because all they do is join groups and like bullshit pages

I hide people, a lot of people on it are people I knew from High School and younger ages. People whom I dont regularly associate with anymore. I hide the ones that make 400000 comments a day that are just annoying.

I remove my ex girlfriend then re-add her about once a month. There is ALWAYS a backlash over it but I don't care. I just removed her again a few days ago but this time I have no intentions on adding her again. She's just a hassle.

I've never removed anyone on Facebook. Of course, that could be explained by the fact I have about 50 friends on my Facebook account, and I know all of them personally. Well, except one or two people that I know from the internet, but they're people I know well enough to accept as friends. I can't see myself really deleting anyone from my Facebook account unless something to justify it occurs.

I got yelled at by a bunch of girls from my school over facebook because of a comment I made. I then proceeded to delete all of them and a few other people because I realized that I never liked any of them anyway.

No Facebook, no Myspace, no Friendster, etc... If I want to talk to a friend, I pick up the phone.

There's no point in asking this on giantbomb. Everyone seems proud that they're a alienated misanthrope. Or that's the kind of persona they want to reflect.

I have removed someone, I didn't want to talk to them anymore. It didn't go down well. It's probably common that folks get upset about it.

I don't accept friend requests from people I don't like/don't know, and I have removed people that I no longer talk to (and yes, I have gotten PMs from them asking why). 
 
My brother seemed perplexed as to why I wouldn't accept repeated friend requests from one of my best friend's ex-girlfriends that I really don't like. "Why the fuck would I add someone that I don't like and don't ever want to talk to?" was my response. He is now planning to remove her himself because he never talks to her and has no reason to! 
 
I also don't allow family members on there because I talk to them so much in real life that it is fucking pointless. I also hate mixing up groups of people in my life like that. My friends/family/girlfriends should never, ever mix!

I generally go through every once in a while and clean out anyone who doens't talk to me. But its a bit of a pain to take people off, so I usually don't bother.

I once mindlessly accepted a friend request from some random weirdo from another country. I was afraid he or she would steal my photos, and therefore I have removed one "friend". Other than that, no. I just hide their status updates. I would feel like an asshole if I just removed someone I actually know.

I've removed people that I thought I knew, but didn't actually know. Some people, I add them even if they are just acquaintances.
