If I defriend someone on facebook do they know I have defriended them? Hoping someone knows the answer to this. Thanks.

No they don't.

Well not unless they look on your list of friends and find they are not on there any more or they notice they are not getting any posts from you.

Well they would know if they check their friends list or try to look up your profile

If they have loads of 'friends' 200/300, they probably won't notice, if they have less than 100 I'd be careful, they will notice, they won't be 'told' but they'll notice you've disappeared from their 'friends' list.

If you don't want to do that, you can choose to 'hide' them, so you don't see the crap comments they are making but are still 'friends'.

you can block them/unsubscribe from their posts.

Thanks. Think I will just defriend them as don't see this person ever really.

Some people obviously dont notice or care. I have defriended some people and then later got another friend request. confused

cats - you gave me a wee laugh. I need a bit of whatever your facebook friends/defriends have. grin

Maybe I could transfer them over to your account. grin

I have defriended half a dozen people who I barely know that are constantly posting crap all day long and one who had a full blown nasty fight with her brother on fb it was hideous sad

How do you go about defriending someone? I want to stop getting posts from one 'friend' but don't want a big falling out. Thanks.
