People removing inactive friends

I have seen a few posts about removing their friends who are inactive how do they do this?

How is it possible to tell a friend is inactive and not visitiing your SF?

1. Depends on the device. IOS devices can remove friends by going through the origin menu. If you are Android or want to make it much easier to remove friends, download the Origin program (it's a PC program, not an application on a device) from EA. You log in with your game credentials and can remove friends easily.

2. Within the origin menu within the game, it can show inactivity since it says last login. However, you must be careful since Android devices do not populate this data. So you may be removing active Android friends. The easiest is to see the names of those haunting your buildings and either tracking them or remembering them. So when you log in with #1 above, you can remove those not visiting your town.

    Origin is compatible with and can work on both Macs and pcs.

    You can't haunt inactive friends. That's how I knew which friends to remove

    Check out how many goo your friends have. The ones with 0 goo are definitely inactive friends.

    I deleted my friends who hadn't done Krustyland yet. I was on the fence about people with 0 Goo, but by the end of the first week, they had all started. Although it seems as if the towns don't get cleared of gremlins every four hours for the people who aren't playing every day.

    I am unable to remove inactive friends. On my iPad, I leave my Springfield to visit friend Springfields. On that page, I push the Origin symbol, then push My Friends. I see 3 sections: 61 Friends with TSTO, 15 Friends without TSTO, 30 Pending Friends. The lists refresh over and over. If I select a name and push "X", the friend does not get deleted. In fact, it is tough to get the X appear for more than 1/2 second in order for me to push it. Am I unable to remove friends because I went over the limit of 100? Can I fix this?

    You aren't over the limit, you only have 76 friends. The 30 pending never went through. As I said, if you do this on a PC/Mac it is significantly easier. You can try to hit the X within origin, but I know that's a fun game in itself.

    Thanks. I went to origin.com and downloaded the program to my MacBook Air. Seems to work fine.
