Everyone has a Facebook account these days. Many of you invariably end up adding people you do not really want to be around. These people comment on your photos, comment on your post, write on your walls, and bother you for no particular reason. Sometimes you wish you could make them go away and leave you alone. Well, at least you can make them go away from your Facebook account and delete them.

In the bar on the top of the friends list, you will find the words "recently interacted" and an arrow next to that. Click on the arrow. A drop down menu will open. Select "All friends." This is the first option in the drop down menu. A new list of friends will appear which will show all your friends. Scroll down to locate your friend in the list. The list is in the alphabetical order. Alternatively, you can type in his/her name in the search box. Locate the name of the friend you wish to delete. You will see a cross next to his/her name. Click on the cross. You will get a prompt "Are you sure you want to remove ...... as your friend?" Click on remove from friends.
Click on profile in the blue bar on the top-right corner. Click on friends in the left-most column. This is the fifth option below your profile picture on the left. See if you can locate that friend in the friends list. If you can, the friend was not deleted from your list. Repeat step 2. If you cannot find the friend on your list, its done!
Say goodbye to those annoying friends!
