Periodically over the past year I have thought about reducing my number of friends on my personal Facebook page. I have a couple of friends that have recently announced on their status that they were going to go through their friend list and anyone that they removed, don’t be offended. They wanted to retain their personal page for people they would have dinner or drinks with or even family/close friends that do not live near by to. I’m thinking I’d like to follow their lead. One of them directed them to her blog Facebook page, which I think I would do, as we have one for our other blog, In Between the Sunsets of Life.
I get a little uncomfortable when seriously thinking about doing this. I think, will someone I see in town or went to high school with be offended if I un-friend them? Or will it make me seem like a snob or too good for them. That is far from the truth. I just would like to maintain the things I share in this area of my life to people I would tell face to face or over dinner about. know a person can’t make everyone happy, and why am I even worried about Facebook? I currently have 286 “friends”.
So have you ever whittled down your list?
How do you determine who you will be “friends” with on Facebook?
How would you feel if you were an acquaintance and you were unfriended?
Thanks for your input! 🙂
