    Everyone has the right to reserve who they add on their Facebook. I have 12 people on mine. Twelve. I mean you're not getting on my Facebook and staying there unless we were at least best friends in college (of the 12 that constitutes 2 people). But then there are also people who have 5000 guys they added because they saw their pic and thought it was hot. Everyone decides what they make of it.

    I think you've hyped yourself up, and they prob don't care if you have them added by this point.

    I don't think you're being an asshole, but, seriously? It's only Facebook.

    shgwm said I've only accepted facebook adds from the better friends and try to associate with just them, but the other guys often come as part of the group.

    The "You are invited but your friend cant come to my Facebook page party" situation?

    I'm on Facebook but never posted anything. Only accepted an invite to join Facebook from a cousin to be polite. But some people do take it seriously. Was chatting with a good friend and colleague an he said he decided to go through his friends list and deleted 100+ people who never even bothered to say boo to him on Facebook for years. Another colleague who was on that deleted list noticed that he had been de-friended and now has his panties in a bunch.

    It's serious business. Nothing is official unless its on Facebook.

    Don't get why it is a big deal, I accept adds only from people I know really well. Just because you say hi to me and you are my friends friend (doesn't mean you are mine) does not mean I am going to add you.

    Actually you can accept their adds and they create separate lists for those you want to actually see any of your updates and those you don't ... it kind of avoids that whole sort of embarrassment ... I have people from work that requested to be added (who are not gay and would not want to inundate them with all the gay hot guy updates I make) so I have separate list for whom I include on my updates and you also can prevent their updates from appearing on your page ... what you do is create a second bogus account then friend yourself so you can see what they are seeing

    Shit I have the same problem now. My best friend's friend (whose add I ignored too because I don't want to associate with his type), started dating this random loner he picked up from a bar. Now both of them hang out with us all the time. The new guy told me that he added me on facebook last week but wasn't sure if he got the right Raoul (lol), then I had to BS some lame explanation about not checking FB very often.

    I don't want to create drama, so I've sort of decided internally that I'll accept any reasonable add from now on, but this guy's profile pic is really gay looking, and I can't have him visible on my friend list, partly because I'm still closeted to family, and partly because I simply don't want to be seen with such people. Bring the pitchforks, whatever lol

    Copy and paste from my Facebook profile: "You have reached my personal Facebook profile, which I reserve for my actual real life friends."

    People take FB far too seriously. I deleted mine about 6 months ago, honestly one of the best decisions i've made! icon_smile.gif

    I don't add family, except for my sister. Everyone else I've at least interacted with once at some point.

    Yeah, but how do you do that and still keep your business page? Don't think you can.

    I just add everyone who asks, everyone deserves to hear my opinon on everything!

    oh wait, i mostly just forward funny pics and no personal content, except for art i do political arguments. I really dont like people so I mostly lurk. Although it is fun to post gay things on straight peoples pages to make all of their ads turn to gay porn and hold the "cure" for ransom.
