Does it reflect badly on a woman if her facebook isn't being blown up all of the time? If it's obvious she's not a very popular person?
I think this is related to the fact that I'm well aware that I'm perceived as "lower status".

no, i think some men view it as a sign that you dont resort to drama and are actually quite mature!!!!

My ex roommate is a woman in her mid 30s who doesnt post on FB very much and has maybe 50 friends on there. She prefers dealing with frends 'face to face' than over some computer monitor - she's very accomplished (PhD) and has a very group of loyal friends whom she travels extensively with every year. She is in a relationship right now and I doubt very much her lack of 50 million online fake friends are hurting her if she decides to date other people.

I don't know for fact how these things work, but I'm going to go out on a limb...if a guy actually is concerned about the goings-on of your facebook page, I would be more concerned that he was a bit too shallow for me. I don't think this is something to worry about...JMO.

This is one argument in favor of not having a fb page.

Do people really care about Facebook? Is Facebook that important?

I'm not sure. I just want to know how such a woman is perceived. If it's obvious she's not the most well liked person ever. (To be fair, I have three good friends that I speak to reguarly- one I work with, my best friend who lives 5 hours away, and one is married so our lifestyles kind of conflict).

Fewer friends would be a good thing to an insecure man. Or a man who is controlling. The same thing could turn off a secure man and could be signs that she'd be clingy, obsessed with you, etc. Assuming she's not just very independent.

I prefer women who are not into Facebook.

I'd actually prefer a woman who's not glued to her damn cell phone all the time texting and facebooking. That said, I'd hope she doesn't have tons of friends because she's a "just some really close friends rather than a bunch of acquaintances" person and not because she's an unlikeable person.

To me it does not. I have around 200 friends myself on Facebook. I maybe really interact with like 20 of them. Personally, I think it is better a few real close friends than thousands of vain friends.
