Court Rules That Facebook Friends Aren't Really Friends

A Florida appeals court has ruled that legally, Facebook friends aren't necessarily your real friends.

The decision follows a case where a judge was found to be Facebook "friends" with an attorney involved in a case in her courtroom.

According to a report by the Miami Herald, Facebook algorithms show that people often accept requests from acquaintances in professional circles without having actually met them.

The matter will be further contested in the Florida Supreme Court.
