If you had a party, would you invite the 300 “friends” you have on facebook?
Pretty sure the answer from many people out there would be “Uh, no”.
It’s like the number of friends you have on facebook is meant to be some kind of reflection of how popular you are. Or maybe it’s just laziness and you folks couldn’t be bothered to delete them all? I don’t know, but whatever it is I don’t like it.
I’ll admit, I used to be one of those with over 200 friends – I would accept the lame asses from school or someone I met one time and give them access to all my private information. But, in the past year I have made the executive decision to cull the list of all the people I:
- don’t like
- don’t talk to
- only know by association (just because you went to school with me does not mean you are important to me)
- people who annoy me
- people I haven’t spoken to in years
- anyone who hasn’t met my bf (cos that would definitely me indicative that they don’t care about my life, so you don’t get access to my awesome whimsical posts and photos).
I’m sure all those jerks are just your friend on facebook for gossip’s sake, so why give them that kind of access?
So, I dare you to go on a facebook cull.
Get your list to 100 or less – because I’m sure there are very few people out there who have meaningful connections with that many people!
