Those pyramid schemes are freakin annoying! And when all you ever post about is Tupperware and you constantly bring Tupperware up in conversation and expect all your friends to host Tupperware parties in their homes for you.. That's taking advantage of the friendship a bit IMO.
I completely disagree about having to use the services of friends in order to be supportive. I'm a tax accountant and people ask me tax questions and business questions ALL the time. But just because that's my job doesn't mean I expect them to be my clients. And while a lot of friends and family are my clients, not all of them are and that doesn't bother me at all. It doesn't make them bad friends.

Yeah MLM gets me as well! I will go to a party if invited but I don't do these online parties, no way.
I went to a norwex one recently and was made to feel so guilty for only buying one thing - a $35 cloth! Literally couldn't afford any of the overpriced products but was trying to be supportive. Bridge burned folks!
I have a friend is a Tupperware lady and while I haven't unfollowed her, I don't engage with any plasticware posts anymore and I'm more Likely to say no to attending any of her events now too as they often end up in a spruik fest...

I've unfollowed people for various reasons but not dissimilar reasons to what others have already stated. When people start to constantly post annoying things like game posts or constantly harping on about one particular thing, I unfollow.
I do delete here and there but not too often. Last time I deleted was when I saw a Facebook friend out in public but they passed me by without even a hello nod. Why be friends then? Deleted.
I often prefer the unfollow method as I don't really want to hurt feelings without a solid reason.
How do I feel about being unfollowed? Generally I wouldn't know if I have but I have one person as a 'friend' because she is the partner of a lifelong friend. She never likes or comments on photos of DS despite us constantly being supportive of her Dd who was born one month after our DS, we went through pregnancy together and were quite close during that time. I suspect there's some jealousy or something, she's quite immature at times. Meh. I assume she's unfollowed us and encouraged her partner to do the same (this is dp's lifelong 'best mate') but that's their prerogative.

Oh I got deleted by a family member - she got the sads on with me so deleted me. Then tried to tell me her Facebook has a glitch - again seeing as it wasn't the first time. I haven't added her back - mine must have the same glitch

I unfollowed DH's niece because she was posting every 5 minutes during the school holidays and taking over my news feed.
I went through a stage of deleting anyone that posted photos of spiders

Also, family who are just plain annoying on FB but I wouldn't want to hurt their feelings by actually unfriending them.
