Facebook Allows You To “Demote” Friends
Have to many friends on Facebook? Thinking of cleaning your friends list out? Well, you may not have to ever have that "why are we not friends anymore" conversation. Facebook now has a new feature which lets you demote 'friends' to just being 'acquaintances'. The tool actually suggests friends who might be good candidates based on people who you haven't messaged or interacted with for a while. Once a friend has been 'demoted', you see fewer of their posts in your news feed - but they'll never know of their new, lower status.
