Friend "count"

Friendship has always been important to me. Having a few people to share my dreams and struggles with over a cup of joe magically makes life better. Which brings me to Facebook, the social network of friends galore. As much as I like FB, I do think the whole "friend" thing is a bit silly. I mean, c'mon. 96 Friends? Really? 96? And that number is actually eency compared to some of my other FB friends with more than 1,000 friends. Also, many of my 96 FB "friends," I've never even met face-to-face. They're biz associates of associates of associates of associates. Or, they're people I went to high school with and don't remember from those prehistoric, pre-wired days. On the other hand, Facebook does give me opportunities to get to know people I already know just a little bit better. Sometimes that's good and sometimes that's bad. If you know what I'm sayin'. And I'm sure that works both ways. Like, I wonder what my FB friends think of me and my Chloe Pink posts, etc. on my Facebook page? Who knows. Oh well. Gotta run. I'm meeting a friend--A real friend. For dinner. In person.

  1. I only have 63 friends while I have a cousin who has over 800. 800? I doubt I know 800 people. Sheesh. And I don't really even know all of those 63 people very well.

  2. I think its funny too! I'm new to facebook and I really didnt sign up to meet old friends from high school. Ididnt have fond memories of high school and rather not see them again. It has been good and bad,but the ones I dont want to be bothered with I just ignore or dont add them as a friend. I have met some wonderful people from other networking sites like twitter(which I love) and other ones. When you grow up and become an adult you just dont want to be bothered too much from friends from the past. My grandma NuNu use to tell me, when your young you want all the friends in the world,when you get older you try to get rid of them lol!
