Do you have a few Facebook friends you really don’t like but just can’t bring yourself to unfriend? According to a newly released British study, you’re not alone. The study surveyed 2,683 people and found that 34-percent said they had friends they really don’t like but are reluctant to unfriend. Why? 58-percent said because of simple nosiness . They want to be able to spy on them. 47-percent felt an obligation because they’re family, and 26% said they are afraid of the consequences of unfriending them.

Apparently the average number of friends a Facebook user has is 287, and only 10-percent are actual friends they’d like to or do socialize with offline. How many friends do you have? Does this ratio ring true for you?
