Clean Up My Facebook Friends List
There is a facebook fad, Time to purge my FB friends list again. Let me know if you’re still interested in following my exploits. People who don’t respond risk being deleted. A post here on this subject is getting a lot of traffic today. Maybe it is time for another post on this subject. You start by selecting “Time to purge my FB friends list again. Let me know if you’re still interested in following my exploits. People who don’t respond risk being deleted.”, right click, search Google for… Only the first page of the results will be considered.
The top result at google is often paid for. Why I Tearfully Deleted My Pinterest Inspiration Boards was from a lawyer, who forbids copying any of his material. Maybe he will get some business out of it.
My guy friend; is he playing me? is an advice column. “Sophie” is talking about a man she knows. At first, they are just friends, then she allows that “We’re purely physical”. In other words, they are having fun. The advice is to find another hobbyhorse.
Most of the rest on the first page of results are boring. They have little to do with facebook friends. The exception is STFU Parents: The Great Breastfeeding Photo Debate. There is a picture of a baby feeding on naked mama, who is standing on her head. There is a comment… actually a lot of comments, but there is only so much time … “I’m sorry but the picture at the top is sick for the same reason the Time magazine cover was (actually more so), it is sexualizing breastfeeding instead of making it an intimate experience. The girl looks like in the middle of some type of BDSM session with her significant other, the baby got hungry and had to nurse. Then her SO took a picture of it and THEN shared it publicly. UGH. I just want to get that image out of my head now. BTW, I breastfed my child and I love sex, just don’t think it’s right to put the two together. GROSS.”
So this post was out of control, and a clarification of the search was needed. The search term was reduced to “purge my FB friends list”. The top two results were facebook apps, which this blog avoids like Mitt Romney avoids telling the truth. The third request was from the Catholic Media Guild, “How to purge your Facebook friends list”. Related posts include “Twitter, Thanksgiving and Turkey: 5 tips for a Eucharistic Online Spirituality,” “The Media Message of the Immaculate Conception,” and “7 Papal Points for better Catholic Communication.” Several acts are seen as reason to unfriend someone.
How To Find Out Who Unfriended You On Facebook has an ad from AirTran. This tells you how to tweak your facebook account settings, to see who has unfriended you. “It’s the easiest tool to know who unfriended you on Facebook but personally I don’t suggest anyone to know those persons who don’t want you in their life. If you feel depressed after seeing the friends who unfriended you, go n uninstall the extension right away.”
This is getting sort of boring. If you want to go ahead, and look at the pictures (from The Library of Congress,) no one will think any the less of you. The last item on the agenda is on a site from the wedding industrial complex, Why you shouldn’t be FB friends with someone you don’t like…NWR.
“So, this is an obvious one. I totally forgot I was “facebook friends” with my friend’s ex. He’s never on, he never talks to me, NEVER posts to me (and vice versa) and got lost in the sea of old college facebook friends so I forgot i was even friends with the guy. I don’t even like the guy after what he did to my friend (dumped her in a Steak n Shake amongst treating her crappy). Oh, and openly telling us a woman’s place is at home, having babies, not in the workplace =]
Saturday I did homework while DH was at a bachelor party. All night I cranked on it so I could relax with him Sunday. I FB posted “It took me 6 hours, but I managed to prove the Brinell hardness equation. Turns out it was a simple geometric equation of a sphere. Sigh!” Yeah it really did take me 6 hours to prove it. It shouldn’t have, but it did.
This dude responded: “FYI in industry Brinell hardness is a field test (estimated hardness measurement) and no operator should be using it as a realistic measurement of material hardness. Vickers and then Rockwell Hardness is more accurate. When in doubt, contact a materials/metallurgical engineer”
HELLOOO, I was doing homework! And i am a materials engineer, you don’t really think i sit around proving equations all day, do you? On a SATURDAY night?!
So yeah, I sent my friend a message and said “omg your ex posted on my wall! Random!” and she replied back “wow…he’s even more condescending than he used to be. Funny how his idea of being helpful is really just him being rude”. DH said “wow, what a douche. You should have told him, “no sh*t Sherlock, it’s called homework”"
Maybe it’s time to clean up the FB friends =]
