    I got rid of anyone that I didn't have a genuine connection with and that i didn't truly feel like at some point they liked me as a person and they were truly good people. Got rid of anyone I wasn't comfortable sharing myself with. Got rid of people I don't give two fucks about anymore and people who don't give two fucks about me.

    Down to 28 friends lol. I feel relieved like I can really start using my profile again, and when I look at my friends list, I actually feel happy. I'm also going to post diaries about my im progress, pictures, my likes and dislikes, stories that crack me up, and just be totally honest with myself and my friends.

    Fair play. I'm sure my FB friend list would shrink dramatically too....but I don't really go on FB enough any more to really warrant a purge.

    Last year when I did that I remember people calling me and stopping me on the road with the question "why did you delete me? :S"
    People felt like I did not want any connection with them at all, and I lost a bunch of good contacts because of that move.

    Three months later I deleted the whole acc because it lost it's meaning with 20 friends.

    Good for you! I haven't used the stupid fb with a personal profile for almost 2 years now.

    Why bother FB at all? An email once a week would probably be enough or set up buddypress and invite the friends you care about to it. There are other options also, like have a BBQ and invite them round. Why give FB all your personal info?

    Yeah, I was contemplating deleting it but I simply removed people that I know I don't really have a deep connection with. Anyone that would make it awkward to explain = block. The reason I wanna do that is so that I can keep track of my IM and life progress with a close circle of friends. It'll basically be an online diary without anything illegal on it since fb is so ridiculously monitored these days.

    My account really didn't have any meaning previously. This way I can just do what I want and not have to worry about what someone is going to say behind my back. I really have only deleted people I simply do not see myself ever coming across again or folks i would outright ignore/avoid.

    I've got this issue too and to be honest I'd rather delete the whole FB account altogether but then again there are people I haven't spoken to for years and I'd like to get in touch with them one day but by deleting FB I may lose contact forever. Alternatively I was thinking of deleting my FB completely and starting fresh though this time using a nickname rather than real details and adding those friends that I will be in contact with.

    Truthfully, I only use Facebook these days for creepin'.

    Hey, at least I'm honest, right?
