    Many people collecting Facebook friends see it as a sign of their social value, but one other way to determine your true popularity is how fast people are unfriending you. Now if you see your friend list going down then you need to check on this:

Your photo Tagging
There are many applications that will go ahead and tag all of your friends for various reasons. It could be an image showing when all of your friends’ birthdays take place , or showing your top 10 friends, these things can be very annoying to your friends. To you it might be entertaining when you first complete the Tagging, your friends probably won’t find it to be as cool. Think about your photo tagging, other wise you might see your friend list sinking.

Are You Boring?
 According to study, being boring is one of the major reason why people “unfriend” people in facebook. You want an example; try writing a 100 post about your favorite T-Shirt.

Self-Centered Updaters
These are the people who only post self-promotional status updates. Some Facebook users publish every thing they’re in and all the celebrities they’re hanging out with. That’s cool of you, but that’s something that should be left to a celebrity fan page, not in your personal profile. Sometimes it’s great to celebrate each milestone of your life with your friends. Other people appear to reach a new milestone every day and share it with the entire world. Your friends love you but you could be pushing them to a point where they’re actually jealous and not just happy for you!

Not Real Friends
Remember that person you partied with once in college? Now they’re your friend on Facebook but you have no idea why you added them in the first place. Now they’ve suddenly become emotional and over-protective of their personal privacy and have decided to purge their friend list. Congratulations, you’ve just become a victim of friend purging. This is probably one of the most honorable ways of losing a Facebook friend, because in this case it really isn’t about you, it’s them.

Asking too many questions
Remember that not every person you friend like questions, infact to me when am asked too many question I get bored. So how many questions do you ask a friend in 1 minute of your chatting? Some people might prefer to unfriend you because you ask too many unnecessary questions. Before you ask a question ask your self is it necessary.

 Posting of Controversial Subjects
 Frankly speaking there are issues that you should not bring forward to facebook, this could be communications that would be “crude” or “racist”. Your friends could get angry and “unfriend” you.

Crazy Political Rants

This can either serve as entertainment or become really annoying. Sometimes we want to read the ridiculous things our friends have to say, while other times they are so over the top that it has become offensive. While I can’t say that I have too many friends who’ve crossed the line, there’s definitely people out there who have ridiculous views and think it’s appropriate to share them with the entire world. You have a right to be proud of your values, but you may get unfriended for sharing them.

Randomly Chatting Others
If you Friend someone and start chatting with them even though you don’t know them well, it’s a surefire way to lose that person as a Facebook friend. They probably just approved your friend request because they wanted to increase their friend count, not have a personal conversation about how their day is going. If you’re in the business of increasing your friend count, stick to that,; but, don’t try to build personal relationships from clicking the “add friend” button for no purpose other than clicking it.
