More Facebook Users Are 'Defriending' Than Ever
NEW YORK (MainStreet) -- Users of Facebook and other social networks are finally starting to get the message that the stuff they post on the internet can come back to haunt them.
A study from the Pew Internet & American Life Project looks at how users of social networks manage their reputations on social networks by restricting who can view their profiles. And they're doing so by culling "friends" more than ever. The survey of more than 2,000 adults in the spring found that 63% of social network users have deleted a friend at some point, up from 56% who said the same in a similar survey conducted in 2009.
