FB friends question

    Just curious; do you try to keep your FB friends list under a certain number? If so, what is it and why? Or do you figure “The more the merrier”?

    One of my FB friends recently posted she tries to keep her list under 130 since it’s mostly the same 10 people commenting on her stuff anyway. I thought that was interesting. My friends list is over 600 even though I “clean it out” a few times a year and unfriend people I don’t remember hearing from in a long time. Just curious what you all do.

    I don’t care about the number and I don’t understand the concept of limiting friends based on some randomly determined number. That being said, I don’t have a huge number of FB friends and at least half of them are extended family, so most are people I want to keep up with. Some people rarely post anything. Some people look at what others post and enjoy knowing what’s going on, but don’t necessarily feel the need to add comments to everything. I only remember deleting one person and it was because absolutely everything they posted was negative. I also have one person hidden from my feed because their political views rub me the wrong way, but I still like them otherwise and enjoying seeing the photos of their kids as they grow.

    I don’t limit the number of friends, but I do have my privacy settings pretty tight, so it isn’t easy to find me in the first place. Also, I hide or limit the posts of people who post a zillion non-personal things a day (like sports, anything with a subtitled cat in it, or 8000 reasons why you shouldn’t vaccinate your children or eat things that contain food). I have a special short list of family and close friends who receive the majority of my posts. The people I work with don’t need to know about all the adorable things my kids do ;-)

    LOL embra. I like your descriptions. :)
    I think I am leaning toward the “short list” idea. I’ve been doing that lately with some posts, making them viewable by my “family” and “close friends” list. I think it makes sense. Though I have a lot of random people who are always telling me, “I love the stories I post about your boys! They always make me laugh!” I should just make a list of people who tell me that and add them to my “Kid Posts” list.

    I don’t have a limit… I don’t even know how many I have to be honest. For the most part people that annoy me are just hidden so there are definitely more people on my list than I actually respond to.
    I know I could just “unfriend” them but that often brings too much darn drama

    What Sara said describes me. I think I have between 600 and 700. I don’t think I’d ever limit it but I have to really *know* the person before I friend them or accept their request.

    I try to have all of my friends be someone I know. I’ve only blocked one person and I hardly knew him and he posted some really offensive things right away that made me think that we just wouldn’t really “be friends”. I don’t limit the number of friends that I have and I never clean my list either. Once a friend always a friend!
