According to a new poll, bragging is the #1 reason we unfriend people on Facebook…but there are plenty others.

A study was conducted with 820 members of the popular social networking site (hardly a definitive measurement, considering over 1 billion people use Facebook) and what they found was 10 common reasons to unfriend someone.
