(TELEGRAPH) — Veiled boasting, gushing romantic posts and incessant updates are some of the most common reasons for unfriending Facebook contacts, according to a survey of users.

Bragging was listed as the most common reason for deleting someone on Facebook, and 68 percent of those surveyed admitted they unfriended someone for boasting on the social networking site.

Almost as many, 61 percent, said they couldn’t bear to hear any more about a Facebook friend’s romance and how much they love their partner.

Other common reasons for unfriending include too many updates, “annoying” posts and “inappropriate photos”, while more than a quarter of users said they found a friend’s status posts “too personal”.
