Your Facebook Friends

How many Facebook friends do you have? I have a mere 36. Not sure what that says about me, but I'm OK with that. One of my "friends" has 400. Four hundred!!?? He must have "friended" everyone he's ever met! Actually, he's no longer a friend of mine. I "unfriended" him yesterday. Too much politics and "I'm so great and everyone is so stupid."

My question is this: Why do people want to be my "friend" when I haven't seen them since High School graduation? I probably didn't talk to them that day, much less at any time in the last 20 years. I'm amazed at some of the friend requests I get. Why are they all of a sudden interested in me?

But I do get excited when I see a friend request. Who could it be? An old boyfriend, someone I knew in California, or a complete stranger that's mistaken me for someone else? I've had all three.

Then there are the updates. I have one "friend" that is constantly updating that she is drinking her coffee and getting ready to clean. Her house must be immaculate. And I don't think she has a job. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but she's ALWAYS cleaning her house. Here's an MSN article I saw a few weeks ago regarding FB updates. I've seen all of these, but am guilty of none!!!
