History of National UnFriend Day
The National UnFriend Day was celebrated for the first time in the year 2010. It was conceived and proposed by the TV personality and comedian Jimmy Kimmel. He has established this Day as an effort to remind the society concerning the true meaning of friendship. The UnFriend Day is a reminder to all the Facebook users to stay close to those people whom you care and move away from those fake ones. Unfriending a person whom you don’t wish to follow will let you stay away from the offenses and misuse of your details.
Be a friend to those who care about you and thereby muting all your fake, imaginary friends. Unfriending a person can be done with the following reasons such as posting too much, too many political posts, and workout posts, not checking the spelling, complaints about traffic, posting about the weather, children, too many food photos, images from vacation, and so on.
