The 10 people you should really delete from Facebook

We've all got them.

That friendship you haven't expelled an ounce of social effort to maintain other than hitting 'Accept' on Facebook in a truly British moment of "Well, it would be more hassle to reject it." A relationship better described as 'fleeting acknowledgement of a fellow human being' than 'friend'.

A nod across a crowded website. A number on a social network. A link of data. 

But you've not deleted them, have you? Lord no. That would be rude. Worse still, it would detract from what you actually use Facebook for: a venue in which to indulge in the art of digital people watching. 

These are the 10 characters you should almost certainly have removed from your life, yet still haven't.
