Ever since the book came out, I've received feedback about how it's made women think about friendships throughout their lives, as well as who is in their lives now. The goal of this blog is to open up and create a dialogue about friendships: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Each week I will post my thoughts, experiences, as well as various articles, topics or quotes that I feel are important when examining female friendships. Please feel free to leave comments; I look forward to hearing from you!

Facebook Unfriending

Another interesting article on Facebook: unfriending and the consequences of doing so.

The Huffington Post: Unfriending On Facebook May Affect Real-Life Relationships

I address de-friending in my book, so this research makes it even more clear that it can have a negative impact.  My love/hate relationship with Facebook continues...

What are your thoughts?  Have you experienced any negative consequences after deleting a friend from your Facebook list?

  1. I read the article- very interesting. I don't EVER defriend anyone... never have, and never will. I do "hide" people from my newsfeed if they have ridiculous things they constantly post that I don't want to look at, ha ha. But I don't like defriending, I think it just makes people feel bad and is unnecessary. The only people I know of who have defriended me are girlfriends or boyfriends of my friends, who are no longer with the people. I assume this is more about them/the relationship that it is about me, since I could post photos etc that they don't want to see. It still hurts my feelings a bit but I always remind myself it's not about me. It must be the kindergarten teacher in me, but I don't like to take such drastic actions :)
