Hey Douchey!...Your facebook "friends" make you look desperate!

When it comes to friends and facebook, LESS IS MORE!
Oprah does not have 1,800 friends. She might have millions of fans but NOT 1800 friends, I just deleted 25 people from my list who claim to have 1800 friends. I have 10 close friends and maybe 25 friends and like 5 very close friends. Every day I delete more and more people because I feel gross about saying im friends with people Ive never even seen, spoken to, plan on speaking to, or met. I understand its a good tool for meeting people you PLAN ON meeting and lots of other stuff BUT.... Whats funny is when I check the people who Im like "who they hell are they" they all have like 800-1800 friends. Im doing the "weed and feed" treatment, just chop the ones I dont know and treat the ones you do know better.
Since when is having a ton a friends cool anyways? I mean when I was child people were CUNTS about friends and everyone had 4 and WERE NOT friends with other people. Im all for being nice but there is a difference between having friends, fans, or being a fan. If I had my druthers there would be 80 friends on my facebook page. The people I grew up with and LIKED, then the college people then the la folk I like and then the New yorkers.. Thats it. I dunno Im just saying the new trend is LESS IS MORE. Now when I see people with 800 or more friends im like "hrmmmmm seems douchey and needy" and I'm suspect of 400 or more. 400 is the new velvet rope. I think you dont need more then 80 but 400 is understandable being that were talking about the globe and you want to be nice, and I know youre gonna wanna say "but i work in P.R" WHO CARES, if ANYONE doesnt have that many friends its someone who works in P.R!?!

But...but...but I'm a struggling novelist. I need all the attention I can get. *sigh* I'm such a whore.

Audrey Hepburn in "Charade" had a good line for Cary Grant in which she said that she knew far too many people and one of them would have to die before she could know anyone else. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwdOw-JXTOI

I could have written this post myself. Honestly. My limit is 90 friends. My favourite thing, though, is the persistent requester. If I ignored the friend request the first time, what makes them think I'll change my time on the third, fourth or fifth request? Seriously. Being in the same math class 25 years ago does NOT make us friends. And it's not because she's a married, stay-at-home mom with three kids and never ventured 30 miles beyond our home town. Well, maybe it is a little bit. But I will not let her live vicariously through my fabulous Facebook life.

Thanks for letting me vent. I feel better now.

I hit the arbitrary facebook ceiling of 5000 friends long ago and while everyone's so douchy about chopping people they dont physically know, I've made good money from a few of those strangers who approached me and bought my work....

of course i get loads of spam and have to 'prune' often but my ego loves that every retarded status update i make gets mega feedback.

you never know who wants to be your friend, it might just pay the fuck off!

my party's full bitches!!
