If you've been using Facebook for a long time, your friends list is probably full of people you don't necessarily know. Unfortunately, Facebook does not allow you to delete multiple friends at once, either on the website or through the app, and you will need to download an extension to do so. If you don't mind deleting your friends one by one, you have the option of using Facebook to manually remove people you no longer want to hear from your list.
