I am going through my Facebook friends list and culling the herd so to speak. Don’t worry! It doesn’t mean we’re not friends! It simply means one of a few things…
- We don’t interact on Facebook. Either because we don’t post anything interesting to each other or we don’t see each other’s posts due to Facebook’s wonky “This is what we want you to see” algorithm.
- I don’t like what you post and it sucks the fun out of Facebook for me. (like all you do is channel news articles or some silly shit, or post random crap without doing fact checking. THAT’S A BIG ONE)
- We knew each other previously and maybe worked together but have nothing in common other than a few years or so of our lives. We’ve gone our separate ways and have “Friended” each other on Facebook because of nostalgia. With little to no chance for future face to face interaction.
- We’ve never met or had any interaction outside of Facebook
So don’t get butthurt. Or do get butthurt, I don’t care, it’s your call on how serious you take Facebook to be honest. Friends come and go in real life and are just a click away on Facebook.
This post will be public on my time line so everyone can see it, even those that didn’t make the cut so to speak. There will be more in the coming days.
