My coworker and friend Renee notes her fav quote: “But we’re not knocking it. Facebook is all about lesser friends, and there’s nothing wrong with second-tier.” Ouch! This from this article on MSN Tech:
After using Facebook for a while, you notice that people tend to say the same things over and over in their status updates. They are bored at work, they’re behind on sleep, they have big news ─ or they just want to tell you how generally cool life is. We take a look at the 10 most common kinds of Facebook updates.
I gotta tell you, I wish I had said much of this to my Facebook peeps. Instead I will tell you how I cull my stream (on the home page) so that I only see posts from my bestest family and friends. I have told this to so many friends that I thought I’d post it for you.
1. Prune your friend list at least twice a year. If they haven’t said anything memorable in a year, they’re gone. Be brutal unless they are family.
2. On the HOME page when a person or comment comes that you don’t want to see in the future, glide your mouse cursor over the right-hand side of the comment where you can then see HIDE. Select the person, app, or both and you’ll not see them anymore.
That’s it. And it makes my time on Facebook short and to the point. I have found that many people are using Facebook en lieu of blogs or even email. Who’da thought. :o)
