It turns out, a sequel is in the works for this decent horror film. Here's what i found on Cinemablend:

"Unfriended is exactly the kind of film studios love. It’s a movie that was produced for practically nothing and made millions at the box office. After debuting in U.S. theaters on April 17, the film has earned more than $25 million. So it shouldn’t come as a major shocker that Universal has green lit Unfriended 2.

According to Bloody Disgusting, the sequel to Unfriended, which is being hailed by critics as the most creative horror film of the year, is officially in the works. Nelson Greaves, who wrote the script for the first film, is already drafting the treatment for Unfriended 2.

It’s unclear where a story for Unfriended 2 might go. As Gabriadze and Greaves toldIndiewire in an interview, most of the script, such as the chat messages, was actually written in post, while it was suggested that the actors improvise in order to establish genuine reactions. The essence of Unfriended was to film a horror story within the confines of a Skype conversation, which the filmmakers likened to The Blair Witch Project. Taking something fresh like this and trying to replicate its success with the same framing device but a different situation could easily go the cheap route. So far, though, there's no real sign that Unfriended 2 will bomb."
