Friend Requests

Post by Claire on Thu Jul 05, 2018 5:37 pm

How do you cope with friend requests on face book or new followers on Twitter?

I've just accepted 15 friend requests and rejected 4.

The 15 I accepted have more than 100 mutual friends - so I assume they are either UK Labour, SNP, Green Party supporters, Scottish lefties or Yes movement members.

The 4 were people with about one or two mutual friends who weren't real friends or relatives.

With twitter I follow back people with #FBPE or #FBSI and also anyone I know who is either left wing or Pro Indy. Or people from the other sides that I have had pleasant convos with.

My facebook has become a monster. I initially used it for friends, colleagues and family then joined political groups and started posting on political and media pages and before I knew it I have 1980 "friends". Shocked

I love twitter. I haven't posted since my dad took unwell in January but I can feel the nosiness about what's happening starting up again Very Happy

I was once maxed out of FB friends. I stopped playing war games and deleted most of them. I did build them back up with fellow CTers but once again have thinned them all out. I have a few hundred followers but don't really add people anymore. My FB is open so no need to add them anyway.

Last year I friended a cpl of authors on fb. Soon after all these ppl who I didn’t know wanted to be my friend. Some I accepted, some I didn’t. A cpl of weeks ago I unfriended a load. No good them being there if you never chat with them.

Pretty much the same for me Aqua. Although I do have a facebook account.

It was just one of those things you try, then think, Nah, it's not for me. shake head

I break out in a cold sweat if my friends list exceeds 80-90. If I get friend requests and I don't know the person then I just don't accept them. My FB is full of photos and personal stuff but it's not open. Dean found it very boring when he found it as it only had one or two pictures of me and DB at the time.

If I find myself not interacting with someone on my friends list then I'll have a softly softly cull, we wouldn't miss one another if we weren't already chatting etc.

That's a good way to do it.

I remember when you and Melfi were raging at Dean on Toasted and I was like a keystone cop.

I had no idea he was stalking you all. Mad

Did he? Cheeky bugger Mr Green

To be honest, nowadays it's pretty much the norm to be stalked on FB so people wouldn't really be too surprised if it happened now.

I only FB with friends/family who are abroad. I found that some people get offended if you don’t ‘like’ their posts often so I left that shit behind. Cba with that level of insecurity in people who are normally quite sane yet turn manic online.
