Half A Billion People Unfriended On Facebook

March 26, 2012 by staff 

Half A Billion People Unfriended On Facebook, Late night funnyman Jimmy Kimmel’s first Unfriend Day was such a huge success, he just had to do it again. The inaugural 2010 event saw millions of Facebook users trimming the fat from their respective profiles, all in the name of what irked the jocular television host.

“Everyone I work with is on Facebook all the time,” Kimmel shared with the Los Angeles Times. “I just don’t understand why they’re interested in what somebody they went to the fifth grade with is having for lunch…I decided it would be a good idea to encourage people to whittle those friends down.”

With the help of Canadian Trekkie William Shatner, Kimmel kicked off his second annual Unfriend Day in November 2011. What followed was either a simple coincidence, or proof that Kimmel’s influence can challenge that of Oprah Winfrey.
