    Does anyone do this or experience it? AHH it's annoying!!

    I mean, what's wrong with rejecting someone?

    I see ppl on FB with like thousands of friends and I add them (not randomly) we talked b4, and I get added and it's like, ohh just another one lol

    I got 8 people on Facebook. The "newest" I've known for 6 years (in person), the oldest for 20.

    Yeah getting on my Facebook is not easy icon_razz.gif

    Yeah... I delete people if they spam my newsfeed or w/e but regardless I don't talk to most of the people who are still on there.

    I recently realized that I had over 300 'friends' on facebook. Some, I didn't really know all that well. Some, I didn't really care for. Some, I hadn't seen in 10 years and would likely never see again. Some were work-related where it was no longer politically important to keep them as 'friends'. I wanted to get it down to 100. At about 150, I found it difficult to eliminate any more, although with a few of them, I am keeping them on the list just to not be rude. I think I read somewhere where approx 150 is all we can keep in our extended social circle? Seemed to be the number for me.

    I used to have, like 800 friends on FB. When I deleted those that I don't know, it narrowed down to 450, that I actually know in person. I must say that I travel a lot, and are quite communicative, but every person on my friend list is someone I talked at least once. I refuse random requests from some unfamiliar people, jus because we have some common friends.

    Not meaning to call anyone out, but an above poster buddied me cause I hotlisted him and never spoke a word to me. And another poster above and I talked several times but never accepted my buddy request.

    I will hotlist someone from time to time and not open a conversation. But I will not send a buddy request or accept one without a conversation and yea, I will delete (clean up) after a while when the conversations stop..i.e. no replies. No biggies. Just folks shouldn't be surprised or upset about it. Same goes for Facebook too.

    I think people just add people to be nice or to show some sort of status that they have all these friends and that makes them look more popular?

    Someone who I kinda sorta know from college but friended a while back has most of his stuff (including his friend list) hidden. He just posted that he's hitting the 5000 friend limit and asked people to "like" his fan page if they wanted to keep up with him. I assume he's gonna do mass de-friending.

    That's a lot of "friends." He must never talk to most of them.

    Maybe you should take it a bit more serious unless you are not who you portray yourself to be. And besides, maybe YOU took my post a bit too seriously. Some folks are collectors of people. I am not.

    Collector of people? I have not more than 30 buddies, and 2 guys on the hot list. That's hardly a collecting. Beside, I tend to spend my life in the real world with a real people, and RJ is just virtual, therefore, not taking it too seriously. Why should it matter what some guy ( who might be fake or not ) on the other side of the world thinks? Couldn't care less. I know what my REAL friends think, and that's what counts. For me, at least.
