According to a new poll, about 30 per cent of Americans haven't seen a single one of their Facebook friends in the past two months.

Thanks to the invention of Facebook, we're able to keep up to date on all of our 'friends' lives through the feed, but most of us ever only ever see these friends through the computer monitor.

If that sounds strange, it may surprise you that those who hadn't seen any of their Facebook friends were the majority group polled.

The second highest polling group were the 23 per cent who said they had seen one to 10 per cent of their Facebook friends in the same period.

In fact, only 10 per cent admitted to seeing 90 per cent or more of their Facebook friends.

The poll cited a recent Pew study which found that the average Facebook user has 245 friends.
