A lot of people have been bitten by the Spring Cleaning bug. I have too but to a different extent. I'm not cleaning out the cobwebs in my house or rearranging the furniture for something "new". Instead, I'm cleaning out my FB page.
I had over 300 friends. I know that compared to some, that's not a lot, but for me that was crazy. I didn't "talk" to all those people. I didn't "like" their pictures or status's or comment on them. They, in turn, didn't "like" or comment on my things. In some cases, I actually had NO idea who they were! What's the point in having them as "friends" when you don't recognize/remember them or you don't interact with them?
Quite a few of them were people I went to High School with, some I wasn't even actually friends with then but talked to occasionally. Most where other Great Dane lovers, the ONLY thing we had in common where Danes. Again, there was very little, to no communication between us, so why bother having them?
For some people, I think there's a game of sorts; let's see how many "friends" I can make. I saw some that had over 1,000. That's 1,000 people!! How can you honestly keep up with each and every one of those people? You'd have to spend all day on FB to keep up with them all, I don't have that kind of time.
I narrowed it down to just below 250. Still a high number but for the most part, I still keep in touch with them in some way. A few of them are artists of one form or another and I enjoy seeing their work. Several are family members and although we might not communicate much, I know they still enjoy seeing pictures of the kids and reading stories about them. Then there are the ones I actually call my friends, the ones I keep in touch with almost daily; either by chatting on FB, through pictures or status's or talking on the phone.
My FB feels clean now. :-)
Now I just need to be bitten by the HOUSE Spring Cleaning bug LOL
