An absolutely terrifying event to behold, considering that many would rather commit suicide than be unfriended on Facebook (or any other social networking site that no one could care any less about. i.e Myspace).
Jeremy: Oh, god. No... NO!

1. To remove someone from your Facebook, or other social networking site. Doing this is often seen as a passive-aggressive move, telling the person without telling them that you no longer want to be friends. It's also commonly a response to drama. 'Unfriend' someone often causes more drama. There are sometimes valid reasons for doing this and sometime even more than one, even...on separate occasions.

What can you do about this if someone has 'unfriend' you? Just be open-minded about the situation, never assume and always ask them why they have done this for. You never know they may be going through a hard time because of this!?
Little Johny has 'unfriend' all of his friends, closed his account down, re-opened another account, added his friends again, decided to 'unfriend' and delete his account again. And so on, and so forth....

Little Johny decides to 'unfriend' some of his friends, who are not close friends. He feels that he wished, at the beginning when he created his Facebook account that he only added close friends and Family. He is not doing this because he dis-likes his other friends, he is doing this for the same reason why all the family meet up for Christmas Lunch - you don't invite every Tom, Dick, and Harry to the meal do you??

Little Johny goes out to a party and someone gives him a little something too strong. It brings on intense paranoia and he believes everyone is out to get him, including his Facebook friends! He feels the CIA to the smurfs are watching him and so he decides to 'unfriend' everyone and delete his account.

Little Johny hates the way Facebooks is set up: bored of the blue colour, bored of the bugs and issues within Facebook, bored because by this point in time nobody ever talks to him because he has 'unfriend' and deleted his Facebook account ridiculous amounts of time. A slight depression sets in and he decides to 'unfriend' everyone and delete his account again!!

Little Johny.....etc. etc.

Derived from "unfriending" someone on Facebook, to "unfriend" somebody in the real world is to stop acknowledging their presence. Instead of looking at them as you pass by, basically you just ignore them as if you had never met them.

Getting unfriended is especially weird when you know somebody by virtue of your participation in a group or team — which normally gives you at least a mild sense of camaraderie — but the person who unfriends you still insists on basically ignoring you.
It's official. JoBob unfriended me. I saw him in the hall yesterday and he didn't even acknowledge that we had ever met.

After Dave posted private photos of her wild sweet 16 birthday party, featuring much nudity and general craziness, Tilly thought he's just gone too far. So, she unfriended him on myspace, took him out of her buddies list, and deleted him from her phone contacts.

Sookie asked her a couple weeks later about it, "What, I thought you two were tight?" Tilly shrugged. "Well, we used to be bffs but now we're unfriends and that's just how it is."

The act of removing someone from your Facebook 'Friends List'. Or in other words acting like a 'Girl'. If you're a dude and you do this, you should consider growing some.
He was afraid to confront his friend(s), so he took the path of a pussy and unfriended them.
