70% of Americans on Facebook Have at Least One Gay Friend

Why I Unfriended Everyone on Facebook

Last night I had 369 Facebook friends, and today I have zero. I thought about quitting Facebook a few weeks ago, but realized that Facebook itself wasn't the problem. The problem was my friends.

Misanthropes Rejoice! Facebook Adds Pages Only View, Hides Your Friends

Good news for anyone who hates their friends! Facebook has announced that it is rolling out a new Pages Only view that hides your friends from the News Feed and instead only shows updates from pages to which you subscribe.
