Some are friends from a different point in my life, and we don't really talk anymore, but we check in every once in a while. FB is good for that sort of thing.
I guess I have taken on way too many friends to keep up with. One "friend" thought this was the case and sent me a message on FB to cancel our friendship:
"This whole fb thing only makes sense to me if you actually stay in touch and keep up - and are genuinely interested in what the other is doing or to some extent value there opinion when comments are made...you just made my point - none of these things were true with our fb friendship so I deleted you about 5 months ago and you just noticed! I've never been good with the occasional friend thing, I think that it is superficial and pretentious - besides the last thing I want to do is take up valuable fb space on your page...you take care - Please dont send me an other."
Superficial? Pretentious? Well, I never! I wonder how many other people have canceled me for lack of interest. Ha! Please don't take it personal if I have not paid enough attention to you on FB as this is not my main avenue of communication...Srsly.
