You and your ex split up, and you’re still on friendly terms… so do you need to unfriend each other on social media? The experts say: NO! According to a Canadian study, people who parted on good terms and stayed friends with their ex suffered the least post-break-up distress. However, if the breakup was gnarly and bitter, or you’re heartbroken, definitely unfriend and unfollow your ex. Because seeing them online will only prolong your feelings of misery and keep them fresh in your mind.
