I've had an account for about a year. It was one of those things I needed to get some info about a summer camp program. It seemed good at the time and it was helpful.
This time I actually decided to see if I could re-connect with some old friends via this social networking site. I did! In fact, that was a good thing. I have reconnected with a few girl friends I knew when we were all much, much younger - before grade school for two of them! I find it fascinating to see the adults they have grown into. I have fond memories of all these ladies.
But, I also have a few people I said okay to being "friends" with that I really need to un-friend/de-friend. How does one go about that? And what is the correct term I am looking for? I really don't need to know the details of their lives they seem to think everyone needs to know. And, I don't want to share-all with them either. Am I wrong to say, "oops sorry, don't want to be your friend anymore?" They are kind enough souls, I just really don't want to know every little thing.
I have all ready blocked one person's status updates. If absolutely nothing else is happening with any of my "other" friends, then I will get that update. Even then, I don't need it! More importantly, I DON'T WANT IT! Way To Much Information!
I feel guilty for even partially blocking these updates. I find myself not even checking into the Facebook site that much anymore. Maybe that's the best option.
Last week I decided to try Twitter. After about 10 minutes, I had enough of that. I don't want to "follow" others!
I think I am getting older...starting to show my age! I don't quite feel with the times right now.
