1. 173 and I know all of them....

2. Some people, actually I'm one of them, actually know a lot of people & have a lot of friends....I went to college with 40,000 undergrads, lived all over and have a network of friends.

3. You delete them.

Twitter wins Facebook.

A friend of mine has about 150 Facebook friends, many of them in the local area. Last month he asked me to help him move. He had asked other friends of his as well, I was the only one who showed. Now every time he brags about his Facebook friends (he's constantly on his phone texting and Facebooking) I ask him where all of his "friends" were the day he had to move.

I'm probably one of the last people on Earth who has yet to join the Facebook crowd

I haven't yet either.

I'm thinking about it though.

FaKebook is a serious distraction from a real SOCIAL life. Go out an be with those you care about and if that isn't convenient and other things are more important than your friendship clearly, get your priorities sorted and get some real friends.

About 35 in just 3 weeks. One of my first cousins (there's 21 of us now living all over the world) decided it was time to reconnect since we as children all grew up together. I was made Admin so 25 (incl. kids of some) is just on family alone. I set the group setting to secret and we post away our family photos, our parents some of who are deceased and generally write in a foreign language anyhow. The rest is a result of finding old HS classmates from joining the Yahoo group (another reunion coming up in 2010) and the remainder from stumbling into fraternity brothers and sorority sisters in college who are now in the US. My profile settings are tight...viewable by friends only, and I generally reject or ignore all other FB applications. It's a way for me to monitor my daughter's goings on...I'm her friend and a friend of one of her friends.

I'm with ya! I don't get people's facination with it. I don't need to know what people are doing instantaneously!

People say its a great way to keep in touch with people, blah, blah, blah. I keep in the touch with the people that I really want to keep in touch with!

I can see the appeal that it has for some people...it's pretty easy to stay in touch that way...but I just think it would be too much trouble to maintain. Plus, I'm not into the whole 'status update' thing. Who cares about what I am eating for breakfast anyway!

The "status update" thing is definitely what keeps me away!
