National Unfriend Day

National Unfriend Day is celebrated on November 17 in the United States. This is not an evil holiday, as it might seem at first glance. We are sure that each person has come across a huge number of friends on social networks. Thousands of unnecessary accounts of people you don’t know or simply don’t remember upload your profile – some of them annoyingly send unnecessary pictures, spoilers, links … Today is the perfect day to protect yourself from them forever!


National Day was founded by Jimmy Kimmelom, an American television personality. He announced the date right on his show. People from all over America immediately picked up the idea, finding incredible benefits in it.

Social networks have literally swallowed us up. Every day we gather in them like-minded people, real friends and … absolutely strangers with whom we have not built a single dialogue. Or your old acquaintance from school, are you really interested in his life? Or a casual acquaintance from a restaurant, are you really curious about her children, husband, mother-in-law? There is only one goal – to remove from friends all those who are not useful.

It is noteworthy that initially there was a period when having a “million” friends was something cool! Now you can laugh at this. Agree, sometimes you want to breathe easy and not watch some people. It’s time to get clean!
