Functionality to mass delete friends and pages.
The ideal for me would be in your friends tab to have checkboxes next to the name of your friends then you can select all those you want to delete then hit a delete button and have all of them gone. FB makes it so easy to add friends but hard to delete them one could easily be tempted to believe they did it on purpose that deleting friends is difficult.
A easy list where you check boxes of friends and once all are selected you press unfriend all. It's done in a few second then many hours. If you got to many "gamer" friends.
Now that timeline has been rolled out you are not able to mass delete likes, apps or friends. It can only be done one by one. I wish there was an option to delete groups of stuff at one time. This was confirmed by lifehacker when timeline was about to be rolled out.
I had timeline before this article was posted and now when I want to purge my page, its taking a LONG TIME to do it.

I would too like to mass delete pages, checkbox or "nuke everything" would be acceptable at this point since FB rarely shows me posts from old pages that I've liked (and most of those I liked when it was more about connecting with other people with the same interests). I can relike things easier than I can unlike them.
If anyone is looking at this wanting a solution (I want one for pages) but for friends, there is an extension for Firefox to do this. I cant remember the specifics, but I saw an article about this on Lifehacker. There is an addon called Greasemonkey, and under that is a script to quickly delete friends.
Hope that helps.
A list kept of all people who have unfriended you and also a stronger notification would be nice.
We got flooded with unwanted likes from another country. They constantly spam our business page with links and sayings in Arabic language. I can tell who they are by their names but when there are several thousand of them it is impossible to clean the list because only about 500? results can be displayed at a time. There needs to be a way to remove all of them not just some.
I totally agree.. it takes ages to delete friends one by one and have the page refresh in bewteen
