Nov. 17 celebrates National Unfriend Day


(CNN) – Go ahead and hit delete, Sunday is National “Unfriend” Day.

Jimmy Kimmel declared Nov. 17 “National Facebook Unfriend Day” to inspire people to tidy-up their social media accounts.

Social media use can interfere with sleep, mental health or daily responsibilities.
