    Do you have any Facebook "friends" that have 5000 friends and totally thinks of himself as incredibly hot, when in reality he is just moderately handsome. First off, how did these guys get 5000 friends? Secondly, all of the "friends" are constantly flirting with him on every one of his posts. It really is fascinating to read some of the posts btw, like every post has a really bad double entendre.

    OMG I agree what the fuck is up with these people. I have 350 facebook friends, but these are all people I knew or were close with at one point in my life or relatives or relatives of good friends. I have no desire to have everyone I went to high school or college with just because I met them once.

    After you get past 5000 you need a fan page....that is what those people should do....oh wait no one would be their fan haha just there friend.

    It's all about your confidence and self esteem. Just look at the forums more popular posters. Quite a few of them I just can't understand why people think they are so good looking. I find myself looking at their profiles more often then I should trying to figure it out, but I can't.

    The only thing they really have is a healthy self esteem.

    Hehehe. Yep it's true. And not just in looks, either, because personality can make up for ugliness. But in most cases, neither are attractive and that's when I really don't get it.

    Some people need constant affirmation. They try to get as many "friends" as possible, talk about how great their life is and describe themselves as hot, show off in pictures, fish for compliments, etc. Those that appear to have a "healthy" self-esteem actually have a very low self-esteem. That's why they have to constantly affirm themselves and seek out affirmation from others. I can't imagine being in a relationship with someone like that. It would be exhausting.

    Many people use facebook as a nexus for networking their organization or work. Those who have thousands of friends are not necessarily needing affirmation but conducting business as usual.

    Tonight just resigned up to facebook, after deleting 5 months ago. Argh its evil and very intrusive. Plus the company is ethically challenged...
    Decided if I cant beat join em.
    Its time consuming and and interesting study on low self esteem and how people need constant reassurance.
    I wont be posting much and only "friend" real friends/ family as Im living in the most isolated capital city on the planet.

    I use Facebook for work constantly. I leave it open on one dedicated computer screen my desk for that reason.

    These words need to be framed.

    Truer words have never been spoken about the RealJock forums.

    I have 303 friends. I don't get why people need that many friends unless you're a celebrity, or something up there. I don't know, just my opinion though.

    Can you imagine trying to clean up your friends list?

    now, it is becoming a timeline and I am considering deletion. The 880 high school and friends there can call me if they have my number

    I don't get the point of having all those friends on Facebook - just so they can like your Facebook status and pics. Yay, life.
    Going off topic here - but it's really annoying when you are having an awesome chat with a guy online and then he asks for your Facebook. What are we, 14?

    I really dislike the amount of passive-aggressiveness in this thread.

    It's not annoying for me at all. It's a good way to make sure that you keep in contact with that person because they probably check that more often than anything else. It's personal but not so personal that they have constant access to you--like their phone number, which they may not be so willing to give out.

    How can anyone (the average person) on Facebook have 100+ friends? Surely the average person doesn't interact with that many people on a regular basis online let alone in real life.

    I used to have 300+ "friends" on Facebook when I was in college, but most of them were classmates, acquaintances from the dorm and clubs, friends of friends, and random people I met at social events. However, a few years ago I cleaned out my list to people I chat with regularly. Now I have 58 friends. Even then, I think I could afford to delete like 10-20 more people because some of them are definitely more distant acquaintances.

    I know this is a dick reply, but why care? If that's what they like, it's what they like. I get kinda tired of reading these types of posts sometimes.

    I have a little bit over a 100 Facebook friends. I now work on a basis of one in one out. Don't need more than this and I don't need a "friend" who I hardly interact with on Facebook to pry into my life.

    I have, at msot had 2 accounts with 8000 in total.

    And why? Because I was a party host in Toronto at straight and gay clubs. I ran events, and facebook was my invite list. Now I'm down to 2600 close friends and family icon_razz.gif

    If I wouldn't get up right now, throw on all my winter clothes, run over snow and ice down the street to meet you - we're not friends on Facebook.
