    Default Unfollowing friends on FB

    Do you have people on your FB that you have chosen to unfollow? For those that don't know what I mean, you go to their page and choose to not have anything they post come up on your feed.

    If so, why? Stuff like racist/homophobic/offensive stuff is pretty obvious but are there other reasons you have chosen to unfollow someone?

    If you use this function, why do you still choose to be FB friends with them?

    On the flipside, do you notice that people on your list literally never interact with your statuses ever? Not so much as a like, which is a sure sign they have you on unfollow/ Especially when you see they are on 5 mins after you've posted, commenting on someone else's status but never yours?

    If so, why do you keep them on your list if they have consciously chosen to not want to see your life?

    I have unfollowed a lady who constantly posts those "like if you love your mum" posts. I mean constantly.

    I don't delete her because a, I tried a few times and she just keeps adding and b, she's family and I couldn't be bothered dealing with it hah.

    I have a few extended family members I unfollow. They are very political and have opinions on everything. I'm not that active on Facebook so don't notice/care if I'm unfollowed :-)

    Oh and one girl, who no joke, shares that much stuff it takes 5 minutes just to get to yesterday's posts. I think the last time I counted, she shared 89 posts in one 24 hour period. That's 89 jokes or Harry Potter/Supernatural/Dr Who/Any other "fan girl type thing", in one damn day. It just filled my whole newsfeed. And that's not a rare day. That's every single damn day.

    But she is an old friend and I do like to chat to her still sometimes and don't want to "break the friendship" by unfriending.

    I am not on fb as much as I used to be these days. While i don't always like or comment on people's statuses, I have still generally read them. Some people show up and I go onto their wall to have a read if I have noticed I haven't seen them for awhile.

    As for the people I unfollow, I don't believe I have anyone I have unfollowed to my knowledge. Is there a quick way to check or is it something that we individually have to check on each person's wall?

    I have unfollowed my cousin. I haven't unfriended her because I don't want to start a family argument. But I got pretty sick and tired of seeing her half naked, fake tanned, bleached blonde posed duck face selfies pop up in my feed multiple times a day.

    I have also recently unfollowed a lady I know because no joke, she constantly shares/posts multiple things (like 10-12) in the space of 2 hrs that annoyed me. Mainly stuff about not finding a man etc etc. I'll still check her page occasionally so I don't get caught out, but I can do it on my terms rather than have to wade through all her cr@p that fills up my feed.

    I have unfollowed my MIL, my aunt in law, a friend of DH. Almost unfollowing my mum.

    They just post and share so much annoying stuff. Not racist or anything - just annoying.

    I could not unfriend for obvious 'its my IL family' reasons and they are lovely. Just annoying on FB.

    Rascism gets unfriended right away unless family and it would cause WW3 if I did.

    I've unsubscribed from some old school friends who I just have nothing in common with.

    I don't really check on who likes my posts beyond the odd "I'm glad they saw it, I thought they would find it cute/funny/important" so I wouldn't notice a pattern.

    The best thing I discovered was hiding posts linked from particular pages so I don't have to trawl through 58 cat videos and notices about lost pets in another state to find out they got the promotion. I've'trimmed' a few friends newsfeed this way.

    I've deleted an old high school friend and an old Uni friend, both because they were posting racist things and after a while I'd had enough. I deleted them because I'll probably never see them again and if I do I have no problem telling them to their face I found their posts disgusting.

    I've blocked a couple of cousins. One kept posting those rant type posts and then when someone would comment to ask if she's ok she'd be all 'I don't want to talk about it'. Those types of posts really annoy me, they're so attention seeking, I have no tolerance for that cr@p.

    The other kept posting super awkward love messages to her DH and him back to her. Like I'm talking super sexual song lyrics and just totally inappropriate things. I just didn't want to see that; you see each other at the breakfast table every morning, why not just say it to your spouse in person!

    So I blocked both of them but I didn't delete them because they're drama queens and it would cause ww3 in our extended family. I don't really care but for my parents sake I didn't want to cause trouble.
