If you want to keep your friends on Facebook, you may want to avoid these online ‘mistakes’
IF you are jetting off on a sun-soaked holiday soon, you may want to think twice before sharing your snaps online.
A new survey has found that “holiday bragging” and strong political views are the greatest reasons why people unfriend or hide contacts on Facebook.
Around 21 per cent of those who took part said they admitted to hiding friends’ enviable holiday snaps, with 88 per cent of this group blaming this on jealousy.
And 28 per cent said they had gone as far as deleting friends who vocalised their different political views on the social media site.
The next trap to avoid, if you want to keep your Facebook friends, is to avoid conflict offline, as nearly a quarter (24 per cent) said they had removed a contact due to a falling out.
And 16 per cent said they had culled their Facebook friends they had drifted apart from, and five per cent said they had deleted an ex boyfriend or girlfriend.
The survey, by travel company Sunshine, found that ten per cent of the 2,000 British participants removed people they realised they didn’t actually know in real life.

Other reasons that can see you being hidden off a Facebook feed are for sharing “cryptic needy posts” (19 per cent) or for oversharing personal information (10 per cent).
Selfies are also not always appreciated, with 15 per cent saying they had hidden someone who posts too many.
So you’ve been warned, but will that stop you?
And earlier this year we revealed that Facebook has a secret second news feed which is totally different from your normal timeline.
