Most social and business networking media guides tell you how to make friends and gain followers.

This article shows you how to lose friends and followers. I hope you find it useful, entertaining, or both...

In real-life, the quickest way to lose a friend is to insult or hurt them in some way. On Facebook or Twitter, the same applies.

In real-life, you lose a friend if you:

* Sleep with their husband, wife, or partner.
* Borrow a large sum of money that you never return.
* Tell lies about them.
* Lose them their job.

On Facebook or Twitter or, for that matter, most social and business networking media, you lose a friend if you:

* Chat up their love partner, and arrange to meet or sleep with their partner. You can take this further by being extra friendly with your friend at the time. This way, when they eventually find out about the deception, they will be more deeply hurt.
* Post messages that are destructive to their business. For example, you may repeatedly post in front of your mutual friends that another business is better, cheaper, or superior in some other way. You do not need to say that your friend´s business is inferior, all you have to do is say the competitor is superior to all others, and say nothing about your friend´s business when they try to defend their business. You can take this a step further if your friend runs a small business which is their main source of income for them and their family, and make sure any damaging hint about their reputation makes them really suffer.
* Implicate your friend in something they do not agree to. For example, there is a faux blog software that you can use, claiming that your friend has a top story published there, and it adds people indiscriminately. Of course, you can be make it worse if the faux blog´s views are diametrically opposed to everything your friend believes in or depends on.
* Post pictures of your friend naked, on that drunken evening so long ago and make sure that their colleagues and boss see it. To take it one step further, make sure that the picture is very recent and involves some controversial theme, such as sado-masochism. There is no need to explain that it was taken at a fancy dress party in aid of a worthy charity.

So there you have it. Follow these quick tips, and you will lose friends on any social and business networking medium.
