    When you click on my profile page, this is the first thing you see....

    You have reached my personal Facebook profile, which I reserve for my actual real life friends. If you're looking for my fan page, please join us at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/**********/224850177489?ref=sgm

    And STILL I get friend requests daily from people I don't know. It causes me a lot of stress actually because I feel like a douche for not just accepting them, but I don't want 5000 people I don't even know to see my personal activities.

    I have actually never had this problem. I was hidden on Facebook for the past 4 years, and before that not many random public users where there. So I only got requests from people who I gave my email to or who knew me through a person I was already friends with. I actually changed my profile from hidden the settings the other day after all these years. I dread the eventual stranger danger that is sure to come with no longer being a facebook ghost.

    I sorta feel the same quite often, and then the problem though is, many of my facebook friends only like 4 or 5 do I ever even really spend time with. I have 180 I think, but only 5 of them really really know me.

    yee i agree... but the reason why i can only hangout with few is because my dad is in the military so we move around, which means i lose friends and gain some, i guess its a win/win but only a few really know me... even more than my family (it seems)

    I'm down to 196 "friends" and each month it gets smaller, not larger. If you never comment on anything you get deleted.

    41 in purgatory

    A couple of them I know, and they're creepy so I don't want to be friends with them. . .

    A few others are businesses. . . I really don't want to "friend" a carpet cleaning company. . .

    Certain occupational types I avoid. . . I tend not to friend real estate agents, salespeople selling diet products, most DJs. . . (unless I know them). I just feel like they're out to sell me something. . .

    A few others are right-wingers who are unknown to me, and who basically are bible-thumpers. . . you know, "God is my BFF". . . while I don't preclude these types of people from my FB list, I think I have enough of them already. . .why add more people who think, talk and act exactly the same way?

    Some of the rest I will add. . . many of them have been in purgatory only for a few days.
