Adding more and more friends on Facebook is rapidly becoming passe, as unfriending becomes the new social move of the times. Apparently, many Facebook users have begun to experience the ill effects of flimsy privacy-related practices and are retreating into their comfort zones. Unfriending, after all, is still a preferable option for those who can't bear to part with their Facebook accounts.

Of course this would eventually happen! How many people can an average human trust, really? You might want to start pruning your friends list yourself (and stop posting those drunken party photos, LOL). And as much as it sucks to be unfriended, it does free one up to cultivate a circle of real friends -- the kind who won't unfriend you, online and in real life.
