Unfriending someone on Facebook can be a really stressful issue, both for the unfriendlier and the unfriendlee. For some, it's a lack of balls. For others, it's a fear of cutting too deep.
But "Friends and acquaintances come and go as we move through life stages and find the need for keeping some friends and losing others," says Dr. Larry Rosen, author of Rewired: Understanding the iGeneration and the Way They Learn. "If you had no way to unfriend someone, then this would lose the authenticity of having a relationship."
In other words, unfriending someone is a healthy, normal, doctor-approved activity. Still, how do you know when -- and how -- to take the pal-eviscerating plunge? This article on CNN by Brenna Ehrlich and Andrea Bartz shares tips on handling unfriending situations.
