One Per Cent: Why you were just 'unfriended' on Facebook

One Per Cent: Why you were just 'unfriended' on Facebook | Big Social Data Research | Scoop.it

Quercia and his colleagues analysed the dynamics of more than 34,000 Facebook relationships to find patterns that correlated with unfriending. He presented the results at the Web Science conference in Evanston, Illinois, last month.

Quercia also found that having a mutual female friend makes unfriending less likely than sharing a male friend. Clues as to why come from research conducted by Robert Bell in the 1980s on gender roles in friendship. In short, Bell showed that women tend to form deeper, stronger friendships, and they strengthen relationships beyond their direct ties in their social network.
