Recently, Jimmy Kimmel has officially declared, November 17th National UnFriend Day (NUD). He is requesting that everyone takes some time to sort through all of their so-called friends and “Unfriend” those who aren’t really a friend. Here is Jimmy’s statement:
“Friendship is a sacred thing, and I believe Facebook is cheapening it,” Kimmel stated in his announcement. “I go on this Facebook, I see people with thousands of what they call ‘friends’—which is impossible. You can’t have a thousand friends. A friend is someone you have a special relationship with, not someone who asks ‘which Harry Potter character are you?’ Remember five years ago when nobody was on Facebook and you didn’t know what the guy you took high school biology with was having for lunch? Remember how that was totally fine? Let’s go back to that.”
We completely agree Jimmy. Our one qualm is that it is called “National UnFriend Day” considering the fact that Facebook is worldwide we recommend he changes it to World-wide UnFriend Day (WUD). Alright, so there you have it folks…. Start removing the Facebook non-friends and getting closer with your real friends!
Mark your Calendars for November 17th, National UnFriend Day.
