When your Facebook feed is flooded with a zillion creepy items every day, it is time you take a good, hard look at your overflowing friendlist and begin to trim it down. Wondering where to start? Let me help:
1. The timeline hogger
Have that *friend* who floods your timeline with lame posts that you don’t care a fig about? Like ‘there’s always that one friend who knows your real face when the world doesn’t!’ I mean, c’mon, dude- we haven’t even spoken for more than the two minutes we bumped into each other at my cousin’s birthday party! SERIOUSLY!.
2. The tag hag

Don’t even get me started about this kind. I friggin hate those weirdos who tag unrelated people in their pictures, statuses and God knows what. Remember ‘Angel Priya is feeling lonely with Raj Romeo and 49 others?’ FML!
3. Facebook begging
Recognize the ‘Facebook will donate 1 rupee for 1 share’ posts? Who buys this sh*t? Unfriend the people who share these before your mind unfriends you!
4. The creepy text-er

We all have met our fair share of creepy Facebook text-ers. If you think you haven’t, check out the others folder and watch out for some hilariously dumb messages. Unfriend alert.

5. Shady pennames
Goodness, do you have friends whose name reads Da$hing Sonu, H@nd$ome Pr!nce (mind the adjectives and special characters in the names, ha!) and whose profile pictures speak a different story altogether? Dude, I feel sorry you have such ‘specimens’ on your friendlist and a tad bit apprehensive about your judgment!
6. Whiny weirdos

There are some people who love to cry. They will whine when they are with their lover, post sad statuses when they break up, will whine some more when they are recovering and then, whine again. You may even see them whining about having to help themselves to a teeny tiny share at a buffet where they didn’t even have to pay- coz their car broke down and they had to take a cab! Seriously- unfriend these cry babies before the epidemic latches on!
7. The heartbreaker
Do you still have an ex in your friend list, stalk him/her and sometimes even like a post from four odd years back? Save yourself the hurt, dear! Unfriend, right now!
8. The grotesque grammar
If you are a grammar Nazi, you know what I feel every time I see a supposed friend lambasting grammar and stripping holy English of its pious glory. I mean we can’t be friends if you still don’t know what separates ‘their,’ ‘there’ and ‘they’re.’
9. The political propaganda

I am not cut out for politics. I don’t care where Modi is travelling to and couldn’t care less about the Rahul Gandhi faux pas (I did have a hearty laugh, though). If you too are *intolerant* to political drama, you surely can’t keep the political propaganda ministers on your timeline.

10. Copy paste attack
Oh dear, we see too many of these. The page long statuses asking you to carry the chain forward or a fairy will curse you- types!! Thanks but no thanks. Goodbye.
11. Bathroom selfies
Bathroom selfies! Enough said.
12. Let’s play the like game

Ever received a text asking you to like a picture or status? Yes, these morons are out there and in plenty. Just go press unfriend before like and you will like your social media life again!
13. CANDY CRUSH requests

This one is borderline disturbing! The caps lock is, therefore, deliberately deliberate! See- what you do to my mind with such requests! So- if there are any of such weirdos flooding you with Farmville or Candy Crush or Pool requests, just tell them you’d play the kill or be killed game with’em. Mere unfriend-ing seems too small a punishment!
Also befriend me on Facebook if you don’t fit in the above categories.
