Have you ever considered deleting a friend on facebook
because you don’t interact with them all that much but thought, “I don’t want to offend them”? Well, facebook
has unveiled a new tool which lets you demote ‘friends’ to just being ‘acquaintances’. The tool actually suggests friends who might be good candidates based on people who you haven’t messaged or interacted with for a while.
