I’ve had to prune lately for this reason. I’m ok with a bit of back and forth between friends and I don’t expect them all to like each other. But when it crosses a line, it crosses a line.
Unfortunately, I have occasionally waited TOO LONG in pruning, resulting in good friends leaving. I have to step it up.
I’ve sped up my unfollow game a lot lately. I also make REALLY good use of “Hide all from…” when people share stupid videos and stupid memes I don’t want to see.
