DELETING someone from your friends list is the only way of making sure that you will bump into them, it has emerged.
Researchers found that doing a social media ‘clean up’ of people you are not interested in creates a 99.4 per cent probability of seeing them within a week.
Student Nikki Hollis said: “I deleted this guy I half-knew as I didn’t see the point, then two days later I ran into him in the pub. Almost he was a vengeful ghost or something.
“I asked how he was and he said ‘How do you think?’
“So I just kind of smiled and acted like my friend had called me back over to our table. I found out later through a mutual friend that he had passed his driving theory test that day.
“It was awkward but I’m still glad I deleted him because who gives a fuck.”
