National Unfriend Day
November 17, 2011 by staff
Now in its second year, National Unfriend Day is spearheaded by Jimmy Kimmel, who has been promoting the cleanup day for several weeks.
“Last year on this show we started a movement. Half of the people in this country are on Facebook. And many of those people have hundreds, if not thousands of ‘friends.’ And I find this unacceptable. No one has thousands of friends. Acquaintances, maybe, friends no. if you have ten friends in your life, you’re doing very well,” Kimmel said on his late-night talk show, “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” last week.
“So I created a national day of action, on which, we encourage anyone with a Facebook page to go through their list of friends and cut anyone who’s not actually a friend. It’s like spring cleaning, but instead of trash, you’re throwing out people,” he added.
National Unfriend Day has been heavily promoted on Kimmel’s YouTube page, Twitter and yes, even his Facebook page.
All week, Kimmel, 44, has been highly active on Twitter, urging people to unfriend people on Facebook and using the hashtags #NUD and #NationalUnfriendDay.
