Many may have gone to sleep asking "Why did he/she unfriend me?," but here to take away those nights of unanswered questions is the 'Why Do Facebook Users?' infographic.

The infographic by NM Incite, a Nielsen McKinsey company, reveals that 55% of people unfriend someone when they have been offended by Facebook comments. The main reason that people send friend requests is because they either know them or have mutual friends.

A good number of users reading this would love to know that 8% of those surveyed would send you a friend request due to physical attractiveness. Also, 11% would unfriend you after a break up or divorce (no surprise there). Interestingly, the data shows that men use social media sites for networking and dating, whereas women use the site for coupons and promotions. Well, looks like social media is in good hands!
