Before Facebook, there was a different way of unfriending people and it didn’t include clicking the “unfriend” button. It typically involved a photo of that person and a sharpie/marker to color out their face. Many people did this in their yearbooks as well and probably still do to this day! It definitely gives you a good laugh to open up an old yearbook and find your least favorite person with devil horns or simply crossed out of the page.
Take a look at these vintage photos below that shows how people erase those out of their lives with a simple photo and a marker… and more! Can you relate to these?!
The Real “Unfriend” Button Back in the Day
This one takes the photo and marker idea to a new level. Simply cut that person’s face out with some scissors. It still has the same idea behind it!
This one seems a bit more personal, considering the face is cut out in the shape of a heart. Perhaps an ex-lover? Cutting the face out is one way to keep the photo sentimental as it can get.
Ah, there it is! The classic coloring out the face with a marker. We’re guessing there was a friendship falling out. Hey, maybe they made up after all these years?!
Whoever did the coloring out of the face went all out here. The face is basically unrecognizable in comparison to the previous photo. Maybe this is for the best.
At this rate, he could’ve just cut the person out completely and made it a solo photo op!
