I rarely cull people. I'm pretty selective on who I add/send friend requests to in the first place, so once I have someone as a friend I'll keep them on my friends list unless they do something that really bothers me or doesn't sit well with me.
I've hidden the posts of a few friends who regularly share stuff that I don't want to see. I would rather do that than outright unfriend them.
If a friend shares items that are outright offensive, racist or extremely sexist, I'll unfriend.
I've been unfriended before, but not by anyone significant enough to ask "why?".

So many reasons..
People who post religious bull crap
People who post racist crap
People who post about their kids constantly (I have kids too but I know people don't love him like I do)
People who post too many pics of the food they cook/eat
People who post pictures of their stupid green smoothies in jars
People who post their work outs
People who say 'Sunday funday with the fam bam'
And many more...
But I mostly unfollow now

If you walk past me in the street or the shops and don't say hello you're chopped. I don't have time for 'fake' friends.

I've just done a huge delete of ppl
I got rid of ppl who added me as a friend but don't even say hello
Ppl who post negative things all the time
Ppl who post pics of food, constant selfies and ppl who are homophobic, racist, against same sex marriage or religious nuts and ppl who send me game requests esp when I don't play games
I was ruthless and got rid of about 20 ppl in one go

I rarely delete people. I did a few years ago when I realised I had some friends of friends in my list who I had never actually met or spoken too. I've had some family members delete me and no idea why really. If I don't like certain posts I usually just hide the post rather than delete the friend.

I've deleted lot's of people over about a year. After certain circumstances in my life and finding out about my DS being ill I decided I didn't want lot's of people knowing and became a bit more private. Went from a few people down to about 20. I don't even know why I added certain people, I much prefer only a small amount of people who I trust more and actually like or relate to. I'm not even too keen on FB, go through periods of liking looking on it to not wanting to bother with it.

I have deleted people who I haven't seen in years and also those who post racist stuff (quite a few surprisingly 😡).

Of course there's no harm in keeping people on who aren't very active, but to me that seems a pretty one sided conversation!

I recently went through my Facebook at deleted easily half my list. I deleted anyone I wouldn't invite over for dinner. I post a lot of stuff about my kids/life etc and I've decided I don't want people who I don't have close personal relationships with to see my stuff anymore. Some people made the cut that I wouldn't invite for dinner but I'd ask them to have a coffee etc if I saw them out and about. I also deleted people who post stuff that upsets me and unfollowed those who I'm not allowed to delete(family etc). I was wondering if people would be upset when they noticed but I hope they won't take it too personally, I am trying to lighten my life up a little.

I've done 2 big cull's over the past 10 or so years, and neither was becuase people were bothering me, but instead because I was going through a "nobody likes me everybody hates me" stage, and felt I was doing people a favour by removing them from my friends list. I can only think of one or two people that I've actually removed because they themselves annoyed me. Most i've removed because I truly believed they didn't really want to be my friend and I was doing them a favour. I know it's lame, and there are times I think "oh I wish I was still friends with those people" when I look back at photos of my babes and have all these comments from people who are no longer friends. Oh well. Truth is, had they really wanted to be friends they probably would have sent me a message or re-requested, because I don't block people.
