A new study of Facebook users finds nearly a third of users have friends that they don't like. So why don't they delete them?

The reason -- they're simply too nosy or don't want to face the consequences of un-friending them.

The survey, done by a coupon website that advertises on Facebook, found just 10 percent of the people on your friends list are considered actual friends.

On top of those and the people you hate, the remaining users on your friends list are made up of people you feel forced to connect with, like work colleagues or family members.
