facebook to me is really interesting.
To many, it gets the word out about their business or organization.
To others, it is about showing the cuteness of their offspring.
To some, it is about staying in contact with a group worth caring about to keep in an online list.
To me, it's just another tool to invest in what I believe is the most important thing: RELATIONSHIPS
Every now and again, I will peruse the site and come across a name of a person I haven't talked with in a while...I'll click on their name & VOILA: They have de-friended me!
It doesn't happen alot....but when it does....well, it wierds me out.
Are they mad at me? Were they just cleaning up their list?
I usually think about it for about a minute...move on with my life....and look ahead to the next relationship.
In the many talks Joel and I have had, this is one of the reasons he is so anti-facebook. The drama associated with deactivated accounts & defriending.
In alot of ways, he is right on. It's like once you get on the ride & buckle up, it's hard to get off.
I mean, I have definitely defriended my share of folks....but always for a reason.
Mine are pretty simple:
1-If you creep me out or try to go to a location that I frequent (Yes, this has happened) You're gone & blocked!
2-If you use loads of obscenities or are hurtful toward others, I just prefer to remove the negativity
This 'little' list of mine got me wondering why others delete people....perhaps I'm naive and I'm allowing my circle to not be as tight as it ought to be. So...I turn the question to you:
Why else should someone be deleted? (aside from creepiness/negativity)
