Inner Circle Watch: 1 in 4 Women Admit To Posting Unflattering Photos Of Their Friends On Facebook, On Purpose

"Keep your friends close and your enemies closer." Nowadays you really have to be careful of your inner circle because those who you think care the most about you could be your worst enemy.

As I've gotten older, I realized that my mom was right about a couple of the "friends" I thought I had. It truly amazes me how people will pretend to care about you while all along secretly hating on you on the sideline. I've never understood that because when I'm friends with someone, I truly value my friendship and no matter what there isn't any sort of jealously or envy coming from my way. It's sad that people will be in your inner circle just to see what you're doing so they can hate on you. You seriously have to be careful of those around you. I guess that's why I don't really have any friends now. Thank God for my sisters because we're more than sisters, we're best friends.

According to gawker.com:

Out of 1,500 women surveyed by the photo gift website Mymemory.com, one in four said they've deliberately uploaded "ugly photos of friends" to Facebook, though had different reasons for doing so.

Of those responding positively to the question, one in three claimed they were doing so out of retribution for a similar slight made against them. A majority of the rest said they had fallen out with the friend in the photo.

75% of participants said they were in the habit of detagging themselves from photos they felt were unflattering, but a fifth of women said they were not swayed by a friend's request to have the photos removed from Facebook.

A full two-thirds would get mad if a friend were to post an unkind photo of them to the site.

"To see that so many women deliberately commit ‘photo sabotage' and upload unflattering pictures of friends is somewhat surprising," said MyMemory co-founder Rebecca Huggler, "particularly when you consider how many said they'd be mad if the same was done to them."

An earlier survey conducted by the site found that Brits are drunk in the vast majority of the photos that appear on Facebook. Some 76% of nearly 1,800 Facebook users polled said they were at one stage or another of inebriation in most of the photos in which they were tagged.

WOW!!! You really have to keep a close eye on your inner circle. These "frienemies" are seriously out to get you!

What are you thoughts about the study's findings? Have you ever posted unflattering photos of your friends on Facebook on purpose?
