Friends you might need to block: Have you ever taken a Facebook hiatus? You realized one day that you were spending countless hours refreshing insignificant information. You realized that you were becoming obsessed with keeping tabs of certain people, and then realized that if they were really your friends, you would probably know about their lives first hand. You may have felt this way and taken yourself off of Facebook, but chances are you wound back on it after some time away.

Social media is addictive because it offers a safe environment to seek information we would otherwise not obtain without embarrassing ourselves. It allows us to do what we could never do in real life – filter. We can delete our mistakes, redraft our ideas, crop our pictures; we can be who we always wanted to be. And it seems that all any of us has ever wanted to be fits into a few, distinct categories. No matter who you are, or what kind of life you have lived, or where you have lived it, we all seem to have the same basic types of Facebook friends.
The benefit of Facebook, though, is that you can avoid the people you don’t like without having to take responsibility for it. You simply block them. Why block a friend? Because technology is all about preference and accessibility. Why look at something you don’t want to if you don’t have to. Blocking people can give us a certain satisfaction that we can’t have in real life. We can choose not to view the comments and opinions of certain friends. But what kinds of personality traits and information do we dislike enough to block? Here are 10 types of friends we suspect you may have blocked at some point in your digital life.
10. The Fitness Fanatic
Having just woken up at 2 p.m. on a Tuesday, you are ready for the world. You put on the TV and munch on some of yesterday’s pizza. You watch all the losers on Judge Judy and are beginning to feel like a pretty upstanding member of society by comparison. You go on Facebook in search of the day’s news and there it is – your buddy smiling back at you, fresh with sweat in workout gear. Uploaded 5 hours ago! Not only is this friend an early riser, but she also did some basketball-yoga hybrid class at the park while you were still asleep. You roll your eyes loathing her down to the symmetrical drop of sweat dripping from her fresh face. This one has it coming you think, and with a flourish with more gusto than you’ve had in weeks, you block her forever.
