Cette étude explore les raisons qui poussent les utilisateurs/trices de Facebook à supprimer ou à arrêter de suivre d’autres utilisateurs en ligne et ce, en appliquant des méthodes de recherche qualitative et quantitative. Dans cet objectif, un sondage en ligne auquel l’échantillonnage en boule-de-neige a été appliqué pour entrer en contact avec des utilisateurs/trices actifs/ves de Facebook fut mené. 462 formulaires de sondage valables ont été collectés et les données ont été analysées en utilisant l’analyse descriptive et l’analyse inférentielle. La recherche menée a montré que des comportements insultants, une tentative de flirt, un contenu contre les droits des animaux, des comportements racistes et sexistes sont des raisons principales en ligne qui amènent les utilisateurs/trices de Facebook à supprimer ou à arrêter de suivre d’autres utilisateurs. Parmi des raisons “hors ligne”, l’infidélité fut au premier rang des raisons de suppression / d’arrêt de suivre un(e) ami(e) (86,6%). En outre, une grande différence fut observée entre les groupes démographiques en utilisant des méthodes ANOVA et T-Test. La recherche a montré qu’il y a une différence importante entre les différents groupes d’âge, de sexe et d’éducation. Les résultats de cette recherche menée en Turquie, furent également comparés aux recherches précédentes faites aux États-Unis et en Allemagne.

Bu çalışma Facebook kullanıcılarının arkadaşlıktan çıkarma/takibi bırakma nedenlerini nicel ve nitel araştırma yöntemleri kullanılarak ortaya çıkarmayı amaçlamaktadır. Araştırma amacıyla aktif Facebook kullanıcılarına ulaşmak için kartopu örneklemi ile çevrim içi bir anket düzenlenmiştir. 462 geçerli anket formu toplanmış ve veriler betimleyici ve çıkarımsal analizler kullanılarak incelenmiştir. Elde edilen bulgulara göre Facebook kullanıcıları için arkadaşlıktan çıkarma/takibi bırakmadaki çevrim içi ana nedenler, aşağılanma, başkalarının aşağılanması, flört girişimi, hayvan haklarına aykırı içerik, ırkçı ve cinsiyetçi içeriklerdir. Çevrim dışı nedenlerden ise “aldatma” %86.6 ile en yüksek katılım düzeyine sahiptir. Demografik gruplar arasında anlamlı farklar olup olmadığını ortaya çıkarmak için ANOVA ve t-testi uygulanmış, farklı cinsiyet, eğitim ve yaş grupları arasında anlamlı fark olduğu görülmüştür. Bu araştırma Türkiye’de yapılmıştır ve elde edilen bulgular ABD’de ve Almanya’da yapılan daha önceki araştırmaların sonuçlarıyla karşılaştırılmıştır.
