Unfriendly Territory

My Facebook account is teaming with people that I don’t know. At some point a few years ago, my social network jumped the shark from just being about my actual friends to people that “know” me. In some cases, I actually don’t know who the heck the person is. (I tend to ignore those requests).

As I don’t really post things of a personal nature, I’m not too terribly bothered by friending people who share mutual friends, but bit by bit, I can’t help but think there needs to be another option in social networking at large: Acquaintance

Am I right?

    So true. I did a “Friend” paring a few months ago. I dropped from 300+ to 130 or so. So much easier to keep up with the Wall now.

    This one is so “dead-on” that it makes me feel sorry for myself. haha

    Nail on the head Krishna. Nail on the head. I can’t say I’m one way or the other for N.U.D., but it seems quite novel. What I personally can’t stand are the updates from things I’ve “Liked” like companies and promotional things. Other than that, I’m ok with my friend list.

Tell me what you think!
